Trail mix is one of the best snacks because it is packable, affordable, and full of nutrients! The trail mix recipe I make on repeat is this Copy Cat Trader Joe's Tempting Trail Mix Mix because it is the easy, healthy, quick, and the most delicious.

Why trail mix?

There are so many reasons trail mix is great! It's fast and easy to make, provides nutritional benefits, and you can customize it with your favorite things. Trail mix is usually packed with nuts, seeds, and some sweets! It is great for travel because it's lightweight, pantry stable, and packable. The nutritional benefits are numerous, but I like it because of the healthy proteins and fats it provides, which keeps me feeling full and energized.

I used a combination raw and unsalted nuts, but you could use whatever kind is your favorite. I used dark chocolate chips but you could use semi-sweet or white. I bought the ingredients in bulk so I could make multiple batches at one time. If you eat a chocolate chip, peanut butter chip, and cherry at the same time you won’t regret it!
