Healthy Homemade Trail Mix

Happy Labor Day! 

Don't let the holiday fool you. You still need to pack your kids lunch this week...

DIY trail mix, so easy to make at home

With the beginning of school here, I find myself stumbling around looking for good lunchbox solutions (see my favorite school lunches here). 

Healthy trail mix is one of my favorites since you can mix it up, it stores well, and my kids get in on the act.

My favorite ingredients include:

  • Almonds
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Cashews (chose 1 or 2 nuts)
  • Coconut Flakes
  • Dried Cranberries
  • Dried Blueberries (dried fruit of any kind)
  • Chocolate chips

You can even make this, dare I say it, educational, by taking the time to count, weight, sort and measure the ingredients. Which totally makes it fall into the DIY category, by the way:)

Plus stacking them in my go-to lunch containers is always a fun:)

I'll have to share this with my youngest. She is now on a gluten free diet (with a few other restrictions). This (minus the chocolate chips for her) would be a great snack for her to pack to enjoy between classes on campus.

This is a great snack! I may need to make some for my lunches!
