Lately, I feel like we're run ragged; we're constantly on-the-go between doctor's appointments, activities, homeschool co-op, and other everyday adventures. With our eating habits in even more of a changing state, I've really been trying to up our snack game, so we have healthier things to snack on, like trail mix, readily available.
I've found that through the week, if it's not easy(ish), we just won't take the time. So, it's important to set the stage over the weekend for healthier eating habits by prepping certain foods and snacks. With all the outdoor activities our family enjoys, trail mix is a definite win in the snack cabinet.
I've found myself craving certain autumn flavors, things like pumpkin and all the apple recipes with the flavors of apple cinnamon. It was only natural to create a trail mix with a slight hint of fall.
This trail mix is full of yummy, energy boosting bites and it's great because we can all enjoy it, including Dan who's gone completely low carb, no sugar with his food choices. He may wanna leave the apple cinnamon bites alone (and maybe even the pistachios… Who knew they had a tad bit of sugar?), but the almonds, flaxseed, and pumpkin seeds are fair game.
Below is the printable recipe. Enjoy and let me know if you decide to make it!
- 1 1/2 cups roasted pumpkin seeds
- 1 cup shelled pistachios
- 1 1/2 cups whole almonds
- 1/2 cup Golden Flaxseed
- 1 1/2 cups Apple Cinnamon Bites, these are dried fruit bites I found in our local produce section
- Mix all ingredients together, and store in a re-sealable bag or tightly closed container.
- Eat on-the-go and enjoy!
