When my local grocery store ran out of grain-sweetened chocolate chips, I had to get creative. So, I grabbed a bag of trail mix (with grain sweetened chocolate chips in it, along with dried cranberries and mixed nuts). The result? A delightfully delicious batch of trail mix cookies.
-1/2 c non-dairy butter, melted
-3/4 c sugar substitute (I use Splenda)
-1 organic egg
-1 t vanilla extract
-1/2 t baking powder
-1 3/4 c spelt flour
-1/2 t sea salt
-1 c trail mix
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in a bowl. Blend in flour, baking powder and salt. Stir well, until completely mixed. Fold in trail mix. Bake for 10-12 minutes until done.
