Happy Hiking Trail Mix


* 2 cups any nuts (almonds, cashews, peanuts, walnuts)
* 1 cup any combination of dried fruits (cranberries, blueberries, raspberries, raisins)
* 1 cup granola (like Kashi)
* 1 cup mini pretzels
* 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
* 1/4 cup M&M's (optional)


1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Dump in large ziplock bags or tightly sealed food storage containers.
3. You may also like to divide the mix up into smaller plastic food storage bags so the mix is ready to grab and go.
4. Store in cool, dark place.


This is one of the most simple, yet most satisfying, trail mix recipes I have. The crunchy nuts, granola, pretzels, and seeds are a nice combination with the chewy dried fruit. I try to use as many different colors of fruit as I can find to keep the trail mix bright and pretty. Pretty food just tastes better!

I added M&M's in the recipe because so many people like them, especially when tempting their kids to eat a handful of a healthy snack. I tend to leave them out simply because I don't need them. However, for a person who gets chocolate cravings, this recipe would satisfy that craving without going over-board.
