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)
