My friend Ruth introduced me to Trader Joes Trail Mix cookies while I was at Snap.

They were super good, I wanted to figure out a similar recipe.  So, I bought all the ingredients, but I hadn’t had time to make it, when inspiration struck, why not make no bake trail mix cookies….

So I just basically used my go to no bake cookie recipe, but switched up a few of the ingredients.  We love how they turned out!

  • 2 cups Cheerios
  • 1 cup old fashion oats
  • 1 cup trail mix**
  • 1 cube butter 1/2 cup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetend cocoa
  • 1/4 milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter creamy or chunky, doesn't matter


  • In a large mixing bowl combine Cheerios, oats, and trail mix and set aside.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, combine  butter, sugar, cocoa and milk.  Stirring constantly, bring to a boil, allow to boil for 2 minutes.  Remove from heat, add peanut butter and vanilla stir till combined.
  • Pour chocolate mixture over cereal mixture and stir to combine.
  • Scoop with a medium to large cookie scoop onto a cookie sheet.  Allow them to cool, I placed mine in the fridge for 30 minutes and they were set!  These would be fun for a day camp trip or picnic lunch!


**  For the Trail mix-  I used a bagged version from Walmart.  If you'd rather just add the ingredients separately you will need 1/3 cup peanuts, 1/3 cup raisins, and 1/3 cup plain M&Ms (almonds were also in my mix, add a 1/3 cup if you'd like)

    1. I think that could be good too. I would replace the 1/2 cup peanut butter with 1/2 cup butter and use a peanut free trail mix that you enjoy. Hope that helps!
