Trail Mix – Fruits and Nuts

Trail mix is a mix of nuts and dried fruits and sometimes contain chocolate chips and granola. It is a satisfying snack you can enjoy on your hiking or other outdoor activities since it is easy to carry and provides a lot of energy and required nutrients. Serve this to your guests as a healthy snack for a party or get-together. Pack this in your kid’s lunch box or your own so that you can avoid snacking on unhealthy food.

By making this at home we can save some money and add in your favorite nuts and dried fruits unlike the store bought ones. I have added all the nuts and fruits that I had on hand. But you can add or remove one or more ingredients and adjust to your taste.

  • Macadamia nuts – 1/4 cup
  • Peanuts – 1/4 cup (optional)

  • Dried fruits – 1.5 cups (cranberries, apricot, raisins, strawberries)
