back to basics ~ trail mix

IMG_3832.jpg

The Fall is an incredibly beautiful yet busy time for me- between work and fitting in all the amazing Fall fun it can be hard to keep fueled throughout the day. To save the day and to keep from getting HANGRY I tend to keep a container of trail mix with me at all times. It really is the best for everyone involved - a Hangry Heather is not a Happy Heather. 

The easy way out is to purchase a big bag of pre made trail mix, however I like to throw together my own in a mason jar, seriously it is just as easy as buying a bag but better. The mix varies week to week depending on what I have on hand. I like to toss in the lat bits of nuts or seeds, the bottom of the bag so to speak.

Sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds are always included - I also love adding Hemp Hearts when I have them on hand. Any mix of nuts work - my favorites are raw cashews and pecans. Dried fruit and mini chocolate chips add texture and sweetness and a bit of shredded coconut clings to the dried fruit which I just love.

Now Foods carries everything and anything you could dream of to make an epic trail mix and today we would love to give one lucky reader a head start in creating their very own mix.

Enter below by telling up what your EPIC trail mix combination would include!

Trail Mix
makes 1 large mason jar

you will need:
1/2 cup raw pecans
1/2 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup raw walnuts
1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup raw or roasted sunflower seeds
1/2 cup dried apricots cut into bite sized pieces
1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

assembly:
Place all items in a bowl, mix together and transfer to a Mason Jar or airtight container for storing. If you feel you will not consume in a weeks time I would recommend storing in the fridge to avoid the raw nuts from becoming rancid.

Enjoy!

  10. right now
    I have eaten oat bran mixed with flax seed meal for breakfast every day for at least the past 15 years. Besides helping build Bob’s Red Mill empire, I suspect and hope it is helping me stay healthy. I pour it in a big bowl, pour enough water to cover it by a couple inches, and nuke it for about 3-4 minutes. I usually add walnuts and either blueberries or bananas. On a long, lazy weekend morning, I might add quinoa. To do this, I just precook the quinoa for about 5 minutes before adding the oat bran. With a cup of coffee, this breakfast sustains me for at least 3-5 hours. Please tell me I haven’t wasted the last 15 years of my life!
