Trail Mix Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Makes about 1-1/2 dozen large cookies
  • 1 cup golden brown sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 pound of your favorite trail mix (see notes)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, use a fork to blend the egg whites with the sugar.  Then mix in the peanut butter until you have a smooth mixture. Fold in the trail mix and stir until it's incorporated into the dough evenly.
  3. Use a 1¾-inch cookie scoop or a couple of teaspoons to shape the batter, adding them parchment-lined baking sheets as you go. Gently flatten them down a bit with your hands. (These cookies shouldn't spread much, if at all.)
  4. Bake in the preheated 350 degree F oven for approximately 10 to 12 minutes. They should still look a bit doughy when you remove them from the oven, and will solidify as they cool.
  5. Let the cookies cool for at least 5 minutes before removing them from the baking sheet. Use a flat-bottomed metal spatula to move them to a cooling rack or a plate.
In my professional opinion your trail mix must include chocolate! I like Tempting Trail Mix from Trader Joe's.

FYI, these cookies are 100% gluten-free!

    Hi Valentina,
    Can these or the chocolate peanut butter cookies be made without egg whites and if so, what can I substitute?
    Egg replacer or applesauce?

      Hi Leslie, I haven’t made them without eggs — my best guess (for both cookies) would be the egg replacer and not applesauce. Enjoy, and thanks for visiting my site! 😀
