Healthier Trail Mix

We all love snacks but sometimes snacks just don't love us.  Ok, they do love us but they seem to love us by settling on the tummy, hips and thighs. 
  This is a satisfying snack that is healthy and sure to control those cravings.  By keeping the ration of nuts higher than the dried fruits, it is even healthier. 

Healthier Trail Mix

1 cup of unsalted almonds
1 cup of unsalted pumpkin seeds
1 cup of unsalted sunflower seeds
1 cup of chopped dried apricots, chopped
1 cup of dried cranberries (Craisins) 

Mix all together and separate into 1/4 cup servings in little snack bags.

Makes about 20 servings and each 1/4 cup serving is
120 calories!

I always keep healthier snacks very handy so that we can grab them in a pinch!

This basket filled with healthy snacks sits right on my kitchen bar!

  5. This looks like a great combination of fun and healthy ingredients. I *might* add chocolate chips to mine, just because .. Well, chocolate. Ya know?.

  7. Great idea to have it packaged and handy!

  8. Looks yummy! although, a few chocolate chips would probably still fall into mine. : )

  9. Thanks for the tip! I enjoy trail mix and I prefer to not eat chewy bars, which are not as "healthy" as they claim to be because they're full of chemicals and preservatives. Simpler is better.

  10. Evelyn, this is a great idea - I just eat a ton of Craisins and will mix up a great trail mix now! Thanks for sharing and pinning - have a happy Tuesday! xo

  11. I love a trail mix with almonds and dried cranberries. The pumpkin seeds sound really good. I like the idea of pre-measuring/packaging because I know I;d eat too much!
