What is the worst feeling first thing in the morning? Besides the alarm…obviously. I’m going with freshly washed jeans. The shimmying and shaking, bouncing and hoisting is just so unpleasant before your first cup of coffee. Well, really it’s not pleasant anytime. So what do I do to make myself feel better? You guessed it – devour a cookie. I’m the queen of food logic. Never mind that I have been training for my 5k program and it is totally counter productive to devour cookies – but I figure I burned off some 400 calories in that hour of sweating and dying to warrant a cookie. Logic strikes again!!

And you have totally earned a cookie when you hiked around Jenny Lake in the pouring down rain in Jackson Hole. These cookies are a copycat of the Trail Mix cookies that the fantastic chefs at Four Seasons Jackson Hole packed for us when we were there for our Anniversaredo a couple of weeks ago. It is chock full of oats, white chocolate, dried cranberries, dried blueberries and that warm and healthy cookie feeling.

These cookies can be made Gluten Free in a couple of easy substitutions!!

Swap out the flour to a GF Flour, and the oats to a GF Oats or granola. Or if you want to up the health factor – substitute half of the white flour with white whole wheat flour.

And I thought I’d throw in a photo of Huck. Becauase, Look at Him!! How cute is he? I know, I’m biased. But enough of you think he’s cute too, you follow him on Instagram!! Check out his Zoolander pose at “HuckCleaver”. Personally I think this photo is totally Time magazine cover worthy. He looks so distinguished. I just imagine this as a cover to an exclusive Time headline, “I did NOT eat all those cookies off the counter”. Very Clinton-esque, minus the creepy and add the adorable.

But back to cookies – I think these are coming in second to my famed chocolate chip cookies. You can’t mess with a classic – but there is always room for new ones in the cookie making rotation.

      I must say, I’m not normally a fruit in cookies kinda peson either – it’s chocolate or nothing, but these don’t have that overly fruity weird thing going on – trust me, they’re amazing.

      Yes, he has an instagram! I can’t believe I waited this long to give him one. I mean, he has more followers than my husband – he doesn’t find it as funny hahaha

    I am writing out this recipe for a cookbook and noticed the amount of cream is not listed. These cookies look so so awesome. I had one at a cafe and flipped. The picture of this looks just like the one I had.

    You do not require a two-ton tool pouch to get some basic carpentry
    work basically finished. You just need the basic necessities thinking
    about to carpentry tools. Here are the bare facts about
    what you absolutely need when it boils down to carpentry skills.

    They can be purchased in two ones. One is natural mined slate and the other is synthetic slate made from rubber and plastic
    composites. The synthetic type are made appear like natural slate are usually much more compact.
