Summer is here, and there all sorts of activities that are made more enjoyable if you have a nice little bag of your very own special trail mix in your pocket. Make a list of your family's favorite snack ingredients and stock up on them, and then start mixing to suit all of you.


These are our family's favorite snacks for trail mixes:

One daughter likes to add carrot sticks to her bag, and I like Wheat Chex in mine.

Your own special Trail Mix is perfect for camping, hiking, ball games, bowling, watching TV, or family board games. You'll save money, your family will be snacking healthier, and you won't have the wasted items that no one likes from the mixes you purchase at the stores.

Source: I didn't like paying a high price for trail mix at the stores, then feeding half of it to the squirrels every week. We buy sunflower seeds and raw peanuts in the shells for them.

This is so easy to make and is a nutritious snack to eat at any time. It's a favorite, especially at Christmas time.



Melt 12 oz. almond bark. Pour over mixture. Scoop on wax paper to cool. Break into bite-size pieces. Yummy!

Do you love the trail mix that you can purchase but don't love the price you have to pay? I make my own mixing walnut pieces, almonds, raw cashews, currants, raisins, small pieces of dried pineapple and sunflower seeds. Use your imagination and add or subtract what you like or don't like with my recipe. Every week I make a batch and have about 2 Tablespoons per day. Delicious, inexpensive and healthy too. Happy snacking.

    I keep a big glass jar in my kitchen cabinet and whenever I have a handful of cereal left in the bottom of a box, a few pretzels left in the bag, or raisins, chips, marshmallows, peanuts, whatever, I toss them in the jar. Now I always have an interesting trail mix available to give as snacks for the kids, and they love it!
