Trail Mix Cookies

You know that ultra-hilarious site, Stuff White People Like? If not, I suggest you enjoy a browse though. It’s so funny because it’s so. true.

One of my favorites is #87, Outdoor Performance Clothes

The main reason why white people like these clothes is that it allows them to believe that at any moment they could find themselves with a Thule rack on top of their car headed to a national park. It could be 4:00 p.m. on a Saturday when they might  get a call “hey man, you know what we need to do? Kayak then camping, right now. I’m on my way to get you, there is no time to change clothes.”

My winter jacket is a Northface. My work-out jacket is a Northface. And if you know anything about me at all, you know that I spend at least 90% of my waking hours in yoga pants. But it’s so true! I love these clothes because they allow you to be ready for anything. Sometimes I consider jeans while I’m getting dressed and then think, but what if I decide to go for a walk/run/bike ride later? What if I suddenly need to slosh through mud/climb a fence/move house this afternoon? Surely I’ll be more comfortable in yoga pants and a Northface. Totally reasonable.

I think these cookies are the baked equivalent of Outdoor Performance Clothes. Sure I work in an office and there’s little doubt that it’s where I will spend the rest of my working day. But I brought these cookies in to share for a farewell party. So just in case a situation should arise where we’ll need to hike somewhere, we have a snack to go.

And even if not, who wouldn’t want a cookie jam packed with crisp M&Ms, gooey peanut butter chips, chewy raisins and salty roast peanuts?

    Holy Schmoly – these look right up my alley! Too bad I’m on a baking hiatus. Lol.
    I’d live in yoga pants every day if I could, too – don’t think Jay would appreciate that much, though. :)

    These cookies are so amazing. I was lucky enough to get a cookie and wished later that I grabbed two!
