Trail Mix Cookies
It's time for the Secret Recipe Club; Group C! This is my 12th post for the Secret Recipe Club and I just love meeting new bloggers, making new things from other bloggers and enjoy everything this club have to offer.

Secret Recipe Club

When I am sent my blog assignment, I always jump right over and check it out. Of course, I start pinning everything I would LOVE to make. I saw SO many things on this lovely blog, I can't wait to start making all of these new recipes I came across. My secret blog this month is Wives with Knives, what a GREAT name for a blog. I loved it instantly.

I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to make out of the TWELEVE yes, I said tweleve recipes I wanted to make. So, I just pinned them all and waited for the right moment and that moment arrived. I was headed to my brothers house and he txt me and said can you bake something for the nurses for his baby who was just born. I said of course and remembered this easy recipe I pinned from Wives with Knives called Mom's Trail Mix Cookies. And there you have it, my recipe was picked for me and I went to work baking.

Trail Mix Cookies
recipe adapted by me, found over at Wives with Knives

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter (used chunky)
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 trail mix (peanuts, raisins, sunflower seeds)
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

In a large bowl cream together the butter and the peanut butter, beat in the sugar, a little at a time, and beat the mixture until it is combined well. Beat in the egg and vanilla, stir in flour and baking soda. Add trail mix and chocolate chips. Drop rounded tablespoons for the batter 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes, then transfer to a rack and cool completely.

Here is a list of my past Secret Recipe Club recipes:
