On-The-Go Trail Mix

Written by

(1 Vote)
Perfect for summer trips or everyday snacking.

  • Ingredients: cereal
    nuts
    dried fruit
    chocolate
    crackers
    seeds
    popcorn
    granola
    pretzels.

    I love almonds. They are my favorite nut by far. I do tend to fluctuate between loving dry roasted and raw almonds. So I either get both or whatever I’m currently craving. I also like pretty much every other nut that exists so I toss a variety in as well from time to time. Pistachios, pecans and cashews are also a go to for me.

    I also love goji berries, dried blueberries and big fat raisins when it comes to dried fruit. Usually, I only put a little bit of these in to keep the sugar content down, but if I’m feeling really crazy I put my all-time favorite dried fruit, pineapple in there!

    If I want to add some cereal to the mix, I go to either some Freedom FoodsBarbara’sChex,Natures Path, or Van’s.

    I don’t usually add candy, if I want something like that I usually grab some Enjoy Life chocolate chips! Go for the mini size if you need help with self-control.

    For granola, add some Bakery on Main or Enjoy Life! I’d suggest more, but thats the only kind I go for these days!

    Ok, to add seeds, I like to add pumpkin seeds, and hemp seeds. Sunflower are pretty tasty too.

    For pretzels I love the Glutino pretzels! Snyder’s also started carrying gluten-free pretzels, by Glutino is still my favorite.

    Annie’s bunnies cookies are great to add, or for something more savory Van’s cheddar crackers orQwackers are great.

    Maybe some popcorn, I like to use Live Love Pop or BoomChickaPop because you can get  a plain flavor or something super fun like truffle salt or salted caramel.

    I’d give you an exact recipe, except I don’t really have one. It’s more of a toss in a handful or two of this and that type of thing. But you have options, and it will last you a long time. How perfect, make a big tub of it and then keep small zip-lock bags of your trail mix in random places, just in case. I have some in my purse, glove compartment (chocolate free of course), desk and gym bag.
