Simple Trail Mix

Since going "clean", making my own snacks has been the thing-to-do.  Not only is it healthier to create your own, due to the lack of preservatives, added sugars, etc.; but it also costs a lot less than buying pre-packaged snacks.  One of my snacks of choice is my Simple Trail Mix.  I'm not normally a fan of Trail Mix, since it's a mixture of a bunch of different nuts and dried fruits, with all of their mysterious powders, salts, and sugars all mixed up into one big bag - EWWW!!!  But, I really needed to start incorporating nuts into my diet...  So, I developed my own short and sweet version of a snack-size Trail Mix to take to school and/or work with me.  Feel free to add on extra varieties of nuts or fruits, if you like. 

(Original Recipe) / Serves 1

  • 1 TBSP Raw Almonds (you can toast them if you like)
  • 1 TBSP Macadamia Nuts
  • 1 TBSP Raisins
  • 1 TBSP Dried Cran-Cherries (I bought mine in bulk at Winco Foods)
  1. Combine all ingredients into a small container (or ziplog bag) and shake until well mixed.
  2. Enjoy!
(Dried apricots may be a great addition to the mix - I may test them out next time.)
