This recipe for Trail Mix is bursting with flavor! It is a favorite snack in our house with the kids and adults.

- It is so easy to make!
How to make this recipe:
- Simply add all the ingredients into a large bowl.
- Mix together well.

We used to make homemade trail mix all the time, but for some reason got away from making it. It is delicious and good for us, so I am glad we got back into making it. I also want to make more healthy snacks for my family and this recipe fits that well.
Another favorite snack I make once in a while are these Dark Chocolate Pretzel Granola Bars. Making your own granola bars, trail mixes, etc. is great because you know what is going in them and homemade is so much better for you. Have you seen some of the lists of ingredients on some of those granola bars boxes? Yikes!
It is always nice to have something for snack time at school for the little kids or an after school snack for the both the big and little kids in your life. I know my teenage son is often looking for something to snack on. This trail mix is great for kids but also great for us adults too!
I know my kids usually come home from school looking for something to snack on. This fills them up and the little bit of chocolate satisfies their sweet tooth!
With it being so easy to make, it won’t take up much of your time either. So you can sit and listen about their day or just soak up some quality time with them. They grow up fast, so we have to make sure we spend as much time with them as we can.
