Trail Mix Oatmeal Cookies
Finding foods that truly can satisfy my family is not always easy. We love trail mix because it’s full of high protein snacks that go a long way.
One of my major issues with trail mix though, is that it is usually very stale tasting by the time you open and “enjoy” it. Raisins that are hard, nuts that are overly salted and taste burnt. One of the reasons why I love attending the Mom Blog Tour is the chance to meet the creators behind brands and hear their stories and vision. When I heard Power Up Snacks was a sponsor for the Sweets & Snacks Expo, I assumed it would be just another trail mix company. Boy was I wrong!
While Power Up is a brand of trail mixes, they are different than any other trail mix I have ever tried. Power Up is dedicated to giving you every day, delicious and nutritious snacks that can help you “Power up” your life! Each bag of Power Up is put together only about 2-3 weeks before shipped to your local store making their trail mix made with always the freshest, premium quality ingredients. You’ll find that Power Up’s selection of nuts paired with dried fruits do not contain any additives – no colors or preservatives – and low-added sugars.
I thought these Trail Mix Cookies would be a perfect protein snack for my family! Whether it’s for breakfast or at that 3 pm afternoon slump, the whole grains, oats, nuts and dried fruit will have you feeling “powered up”.

I was shocked when I asked what the retail value of a bag of Power Up runs and heard it was only about $4.99-5.99! I actually found them at my local TJ Maxx for $4.79! Right now, Power Up can be found at Walmart, Marshall’s stores and Costco. Follow Power Up on social media: Facebook | Instagram
