Trail mix was invented as a lightweight snack for people to take with them on their long hikes or journeys. It’s easy to make and you can use whatever ingredients you have on hand. They contain healthy fats from the nuts and seeds, which help to keep you energized. Some helpful tips: keep portions small (1/4 to 1/2 cup or 1 handful), choose whole grains, and use small amounts of dried fruits as they are higher in sugar.
Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl. Separate into 3, 1/2 cup servings. Store at room temperature.
