Follow the Trail Mix

I asked hubby to pick me up some trail mix while he was picking up our grocery order. It's the perfect 'grab n' go' snack and helps fill you up. The awesome part was the Smarties he also added to the mix! I came across a neat cookie recipe while looking up muffin recipes. The best part is already having all the ingredients so I tried it out and have to say they taste really good and aren't all that 'bad' for you either!
