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 didn’t spend a fortune on them – I love that!

Trail Mix

Combine the almonds, cashews, peanuts, pistachios, dried blueberries, dried cherries, raisins, semi sweet chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips together in a large bowl, mix with your hands until well combined. Pour 1/4 cup into tupperware containers then cover with lids. Enjoy.

  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!

  2. Her Cook Book says:

    It seems I must seek to make it at home, not just see it delights

  3. Fabulous and so healthy Pam!!
    Fabulous that you thought of making it yourself.
    Cheers,
    Lia.

  4. I love this stuff but have never made my own – I like using the berries rather than all raisins.

  5. I always buy trail mix but I really should just make it myself!
