Super Easy Trail Mix

Is there a trail mix that isn’t easy??

Which brings me to my point. WHY would you spend the money on pre-packaged trail mixes that are full of preservatives and junk when you can easily make an economical and healthier mix yourself?

What I love about trail mixes is that they fit into any lunchbox and can be used as a side, a dessert, or just a pick-me-up snack. Trail mixes offer energy and protein, and there are so many options in mixing them up that you’ll never get bored.

Today’s trail mix is rather standard. I wanted something that both the boys would like, that I could tailor serving sizes with. But there are no real rules to a trail mix. You just put whatever you like in them. Below the recipe are some other simple additions that can easily go into a trail mix, but not a complete list by far.

*Note there are no measurements because you put what you want into it.
