4 Ingredient Recipes ~ Trail Mix

Trail mix, once which was considered to be a food carried during hiking has come a long way to become a popular snack among masses. The ingredients that go into a trail mix can vary depending upon what one have on hand to what one would prefer, if preparing at home. Especially if preparing for kids, it can be easily customized to their preferences using their favorite nuts, dried fruits, seeds and such, like I did today. A trail mix makes a great birthday party snack for kids. A handful portion of trail mix would be a great evening snack even for adults to add a burst of nutrition. Only care need to be taken to not overindulge. The version I am posting today is my daughter's favorite one and sometimes she likes to see chocolate chips also in the mix.

1 cup toasted and salted peanuts
1/2 cup almonds
1/4 sweetened, dried cranberries
1/4 cup raisins

* (I used store bought salted peanuts which were already skinned.) If using raw peanuts, toast and skin them.
* Dry toast the almonds until crisp either on stove top or a microwave or in oven.
* Combine all the nuts and dried fruits in a bowl and mix. The mix can be prepared in a large quantity and can be stored in airtight container.

It is a favorite at home too. As you mentioned it is very easy to over indulge in this snack. My kids love mini m n m's and mini pretzel bits as well.
