Here's a list of ingredient ideas that I've come up with:
- nuts - walnuts, almonds, peanuts, cashews
- dried fruit - cranberries, bananas, rasins, apricots, cherries, apples
- chocolate chips or M&M's
- seeds - sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds
- pretzils or crackers like goldfish that won't crumble easily
- cereal - chex, cheerios
Basic Trail Mix Recipe:Pick about five of the above ingredient ideas, and combine one half cup of each in a big bowl. Store in an airtight container or eat immediately.
I combined raisins, dried bananas, peanuts, dried date pieces and raw pumpkin seeds. My kids love it!
See? Super simple, healthy, and you can give yourself a pat on the back for being such a good mommy and healthy snack giver!
