Kelly’s Ultimate Trail Mix Recipe

I created this trail mix recipe over many months of adding to and substituting new alternatives for traditional ingredients.Finally, I got it down right. This trail mix is extremely delicious and healthy, and is chock-full of fiber.  You get a much larger serving size for fewer calories than traditional trail mixes. Enjoy as an afternoon snack or while your hitting the trails!

1 1/3 cup Trader Joe’s High Fiber Fruit & Nut Multigrain Medley
1 cup Newman’s Own High Protein Pretzels *
¼ cup Dried Cranberries
¼ chopped Dates
¼ cup carob or chocolate chips
¼ cup Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds
¼ cup Raw Almonds
¼ cup Roasted Peanuts


Mix all ingredients together. Put in a re-usable container to take to school, work, or to put in your hiking backpack.

*Newman's Own High Protein Pretzels are available at Whole Foods in the snack aisle. You can also get the nuts and dried fruit in the bulk bin section there.
