ABOUT THE RECIPE:
Store-bought trail mix can be quite costly. Making Nutty Chocolate-Chip Trail Mix at home is more cost effective, plus you can customize the mix to suit your tastes. Feel free to swap out the nuts and dried fruit for your favorite varieties to create a favorite “to-go” snack for your family!
Makes 10 to 12 servings
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries
1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips, plus more as desired
1/2 cup raw or roasted sunflower seeds
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup walnut pieces
1/2 cup raw or roasted almonds
Put all of the ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and gently stir with a large spoon to combine. For an easy “on-the-go” breakfast or snack, divide the trail mix into ten to twelve containers (with tight fitting lids) or ten to twelve individual-sized storage bags, and keep on hand for your family members to grab-n-go! Stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, the trail mix will keep for 2 weeks.
