Trail mix isn’t just for hikers anymore. The combination of healthy fats, natural sugars and filling fibers can keep you feeling sustained between meals, or give you an energy boost if you’re feeling sluggish. We have some creative ideas that go beyond GORP (good old raisins and peanuts). You can assemble these recipes at home a week or two in advance (portion size is up to you!), and they are yummy enough to satisfy everyone in the family.
- Shredded coconut
- Dried banana chips (try and find banana chips that aren’t baked with any extra sugar)
- Unsalted raw cashews
- Dried Pineapple (look for a brand whose only ingredient is the pineapple!)
- Dried cranberries
- Chocolate/Carob chips (in moderation)
- Sunflower seeds
- Puffed rice
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Mix:
- Dried strawberries
- Chocolate/Carob Chips
- Slivered Almonds
- Shredded Coconut
- Sunflower Seeds
The possibilities are endless! Mix and match, get creative!
