This really isn’t a recipe as much as it is some ideas of what you can put in your trail mix. I love munching on food…and by “munch”, I mean eat a hamburger in between meals. So, in order to munch on a more healthier alternative, I decided to make some trail mix. I don’t like a lot of store bought kinds because they usually have 1-2 ingredients I don’t like…ever had that bag of trail mix with only those brown disgusting chips left in it? 🙂 And it’s almost always cheaper per serving!
Here’s what I put in my trail mix:
-Peanuts (I prefer cashews, but had these leftover)
-Peanut Butter Baking Chips (not pictured)…I had a few leftover and I dumped them in.
How to Make:
I have no measurements for you…I’m not a big measurement person unless I’m baking. It’s really just about what you like. I literally grabbed a gallon baggie and started dumping a little bit of everything into the bag. Then shake the bag to mix around. If you see it needs more of something, just add more and mix again.
Then I added it to my empty glass jar that I’d been needing to fill. Side Note: You’ll notice the spaghetti is in the short jar. I always break my spaghetti before I put it in the water so it will fit in the pot (in case I’m using a smaller pot). So I broke them in half and put them in the shorter jar. Perfect. The trail mix is so pretty sitting in the jar…at least it is to me.
It’s a perfect snack for little ones! Of course he picked out all the M&M’s first, but did eat majority of everything.
You could add tons more things to your trail mix, depending on what you like. I think I’ll try some pumpkin seeds next time. Are there any items you like in your trail mix?
