Recently when I was at a local grocery store, I stood staring at all the bulk dry food for sale- you know all the rice, lentils, and flour you can buy by the pound. The nuts and berries section all looked so good that I wanted to put them all into one bag and just buy that. It was then that I realized- that I should just combine all of my favorites- genius discovery, huh?
Just buy your favorite dried fruits and nuts to concoct your perfect crunchy snack. To keep it healthy don’t overdo it on the nuts- balance out your mix with dried cranberries, raisins, and coconut flakes. You can even use granola instead of nuts to get the same crunchy texture.
I tend to hold onto cool mason jars (like from spaghetti sauce) and am always trying to think of cool things to do with them- and this is the perfect use!
1/4 cup raw, unsalted & nonroasted slmonds
1/4 cup raw cashews
1/4 whole dried cranberries
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup Chocolate Chips
I threw everything into a big bowl, tossed them around and then filled up the mason jar. So easy!
What are your favorite trail mix’ins?
