My dad and I love trail mix, but we do not love most of the store bought ones. They never taste fresh and are usually too sweet. However, if you make your own trail mix, you know when you made it and exactly what is going into it. One day, he threw this trail mix together and I knew I had to post it!
Homemade Trail Mix
This is not so much a recipe as it is a guide. Feel free to substitute in whatever nuts/seeds/dried fruits you like.
- toasted almonds
- sunflower seeds
For a personal snack size, I used tablespoons of each ingredient. To make a large amount to last for days, I would use 1/4 – 1/2 cup of each ingredient depending on what item you enjoy most. This is the perfect snack as you are getting healthy fats and protein from the nuts and a fruit serving and fiber from the raisins!
What is your favorite nut?
