When packing lunches and snacks, we like to make sure to include a little something sweet. What could be better than a snack bar packed with the goodness of trail mix? Not much! These Trail Mix Treats come together quickly and easily, and they are absolutely delicious!
Start by measuring out 1-1/4 cups of organic rolled oats, 2/3 cup of packed light brown sugar, 1/2 tsp. of ground cinnamon and 1/2 cup of biscuit mix (or gluten-free biscuit mix). Add 1-1/2 cups of your favorite trail mix. We like to use Healthy Trail Mix for this recipe, but you can use any variety that you desire. If your favorite trail mix contains whole nuts or large pieces of dried fruit, we suggest that you give it a quick chop before adding it to the Trail Mix Treats.
Add one egg; 2 tbsp. of cow’s, almond or soy milk; 2 tsp. of vanilla extract; and 2 tbsp. of vegetable oil to the bowl. Stir the batter until it’s just combined, then pour the mixture into a greased 8-inch-by-8-inch baking dish. Bake your Trail Mix Treats at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. Allow the Trail Mix Treats to cool in the pan on a wire rack, then slice the treats into16 bars. They’re great with a big glass of milk or crumbled over a bowl of Greek yogurt!
