Monica and Daria say:
What can you do with a bunch of nuts, seeds, dried fruit, and chocolate (yes, most definitely, chocolate)?
You can make your own trail mix!
We grabbed a variety of nuts that we always have on hand… ½ cup of each of walnuts, almonds, and pecans.
Then we added in ½ cup of pumpkin seeds, and ½ cup of sunflower seeds.
We LOVE dried cranberries so we put in ½ cup of those and topped it all off with ½ cup of Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips!
What is easier and nutritious to boot?
It has a great combo of carbs and energy. Trail mix is THE snack for hiking, biking, and exploring!
Trail mix is so versatile that your ingredients are only limited by your imagination! Some of our favorited additional ingredients include puffed rice cereal, M&Ms, pretzels, unsweetened coconut, or anything else that is trail mix worthy!
Just make sure that your ingredients are gluten-free, and you are set to go!
And did you notice that our trail mix is in a collector Pyrex bowl? Just picked it up at our favorite antique shop, The Shop 2….check them out!
Have a great day…wherever your travels may take you!
