Trail Mix

Trail mix isn’t just for hikes! Have it on hand as an after-school snack for kids. Roasted nuts make the crunchiest trail mix, but use raw nuts if you prefer. Substitutions can easily be made: switch out the raisins for dried cranberries or candied papaya, or use cashews or peanuts instead of hazelnuts. Avoid using chocolate chips—the candy coating on the M&Ms will ensure the chocolate melts in your mouth, not in your hands.

Trail Mix


  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup unsalted hazelnuts
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup M&Ms
