Home Made Trail Mix

Hi guys, just a simple one for you today. I’ll show you how to make home made trail mix.

You can sprinkle these trail mixes over yogurt (or ice cream) use them as a flavour base for granola (recipes here and here) and Key has just been taking little baggies of them to work as a snack.

ingredients

It looks like you need a lot but a most of this was leftovers for me. Use what you have though, you might come up with some interesting combos.

And of course you don’t need to make all three mixes at once.

 

coconut flakes

I used unsweetened coconut flakes just to keep this a bit healthier.

 

apple chips

These apple chips were great. A little crunchy and a tiny hint of saltiness on the sweet apple chip. If you can’t get apple chips, dried apple would work really well too.

 

pistachios

It’s as easy as mixing everything together.

 

baggies

In an airtight container, these trail mixes will last for weeks. I put them into small baggies ready for Key and I to grab as a snack.
