Trail Mix.....My Best Traveling Friend

School has started and everyone is looking for that sweet but healthy snack for the lunch bags. These are two I like to take on my trips and truthfully, just to snack around the house. It has protein, fruit and just enough candy to satisfy that sweet tooth in all of us. Basically, you can add the ingredients in any quantity you like but the proportions given below are my favorites. Using the yogurt covered raisins are a healthier choice, but it never hurts to have a little malt ball here and there, just for fun! If you don't like one or two of the ingredients, leave them out. After all, this is your trail mix.

Banana Chip Trail Mix
1 cup walnuts
1 cup cashews
1 cup banana chips
1 cup chocolate malted milk balls (or 1 cup yogurt covered raisins)
1 cup dried pineapple chunks.
Fruit Nut Trail Mix II
1 cup Almonds
1 cup Cashews
1 cup Walnuts
1 cup Pecans
3/4 cup Pineapple
3/4 cup Dried cranberries
1 cup Banana chips
1/3 cup Raisins
1/2 cup Sunflower seeds

Hope you enjoy these Trail mix recipes as much as I do. It is so much better for you than that afternoon candy bar or two!
Till next time.....
