Trail Mix

Trail Mix

I pack a little snack in my kids’ backpacks every morning along with their lunches.  I was in the process of buying some trail mix packets when I realized two things.

  1. Trail mix is expensive!
  2. I had all the ingredients for the trail mix at home in my pantry.

Needless to say, I put the trail mix back on the shelf and made some at home using what I had on hand. After looking in my pantry, I found almonds, cashews, dried cherries, dried blueberries, raisins, pistachios, peanuts, white chocolate chips, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. I threw them all in a bowl and mixed them together. I gave my kids a little bowl to snack on after school and they loved it. I packaged the rest into snack-sized Tupperware (about 1/4 cup in each). Now I have some pre-made snacks available to throw in the kids’ backpacks in the morning and I didn’t spend a fortune on them–I love that!

  1. Homemade trail mix always gets my creative juices flowing, Pam. I use to love making it for the kids when they were in school. Why oh why do I never make it for myself? This too must change:) Thanks for the reminder and the inspiration!
