Recipe: Super Easy Trail Mix

This trail mix is a good energy-boosting snack choice for kids on the go. If you’re looking to avoid nuts, switch out for sunflower or soy butter or pumpkin or sunflower seeds!

Super easy trail mix recipe

  • 2 cups low-sugar, whole-grain cereal (like Cheerios™ or Kashi® Heart to Heart)
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup dried fruit, like cranberries, apricots, apples or papaya
  • 1 cup nuts, like walnuts, almonds or pistachios (optional)
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • Put all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • Divide into 1-cup servings in small containers or plastic bags for on-the-go snacks.
