Everyone in my family loves this trail mix, except my daughter, but her idea of trail mix is peanuts, pretzels and lots of m&ms. My sons love helping me make it. We get out our biggest bowl and start dumping and stirring.
I love that this trail mix is healthy, gluten free (for those of you gluten free out there) and a great non-processed food (unless you count the craisins as processed...I don't know). I usually have a bag of it ready for snacking at baseball games, for my husband's lunch and a healthy snack for me to eat on the go.
Cranberry Delight Trail Mix
- golden raisins
- sunflower seeds
**I have played around with salted and unsalted nuts and seeds. My favorite is to use natural unsalted almonds, unsalted pepitas and then use half salted sunflower seeds and half unsalted. Play around with it according to your preference.
You might want to shake the nuts and seeds in a strainer to get the excess salt off that settles in the bottom of the package. Otherwise it can be a little too salty.
