Trail Mix

Trail Mix

by Pam on February 12, 2014

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!

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.
