  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened, (2 sticks)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, light or golden
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups trail mix


  • Move a rack to the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper then set aside.
  • Cream butter and both sugars together about 5 minutes until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until everything is completely incorporated, scraping down the sides of the bowl often.
  • Sift the flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon over the wet ingredients and mix just until combined. Add the rolled oats and 1 cup of trail mix and mix until completely incorporated.
  • Place rounded Tbsp of dough on the baking sheet. Press each cookie to flatten slightly and decorate the tops with the remaining trail mix.
  • Bake 10−12 minutes or until just set in the center and edges start to brown (just slightly underdone).
  • Remove from the oven and transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
