Ultimate Trail Mix Recipe Guide

Nuts, seeds, and dried fruit are all you need for typical trail mix recipe.  Trail mix is a great super snack for kids meaning that they like it and so do you! Nuts and seeds provide super easy to eat heart healthy fats, vitamin E, copper, manganese, and zinc.  They are also all rich with fiber and protein!   The concentration of ALA (good fat) has been linked to reducing inflammation and heart health.

We love trail mix because:

  • It’s portable! We do a lot of hiking, and so we always have trail mix with us.
  • It’s clean!  (or at least if your kids drop some it’s easy to clean up!)
  • No cooking! No cooking involved.  Kids can assemble their own trail mix with little or no cooking experience.
  • It’s customizeable! We’ve got 7 ideas here, but the possibilities are endless.
  • It’s healthy (as noted above!!)

Is there a ratio to use as a rule of thumb (salty/sweet/protein/carb)?
Thanks!
