I’ve never really liked trail mix as a snack, mostly I think because I don’t like raisins and I’m kind of picky about nuts. But the amazing array of trail mixes at the Berkeley Bowl inspired me to make my own mix, and here it is.
(Also, you don’t have to eat this while on a trail of any sort.)
Chocolate-cranberry energy mix
1 cup mixed nuts (so you get a few of things like hazelnuts and Brazil nuts)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup pecans
1/2 cup cashews
Place in a plastic zipper bag and shake until everything is evenly mixed.
I’ve been having some in one of my mini latte bowls in the afternoons, and it always tides me over until dinner.
