A yummy portable snack for hitting the trails or the homework!
Pour everything into a large container, cover and shake!
Store in an air tight container. Place in the fridge/freezer to retain the properties of the essential fatty acids.
Serve as a quick snack between school and extra-curricular activities. Keep a container in the backpack for instant hunger relief.
Toss a handful in yogurt, on a green salad, or munch Trail Mix with a tall glass of Organic Valley Milk. Enjoy!
Kids in the Kitchen:
The best part of Trail Mix is that you can toss just about any fruit or nut combination together and it still tastes pretty good!
Children of all ages can make this recipe with ease, and vote on their favorite combinations.
Peanuts are a high allergen food, so we use raw (EFA-rich) almonds and sunflower seeds.
Chocolate is not necessary in this recipe. A great substitute is dried cherries, cranberries, or blueberries.
Try one of these combos:
almond/raisin (simple and tastes like PB&J)
almonds/prunes/apricots/sunflower seeds (tastes divine and is a great source of fiber)
raw cashews/coconut/dried bananas/raisins and maybe chocolate chips ("Monkey Chow")
almonds/sunflower seeds/cherries/bananas (tangy and crunchy)
