Trail Mix


Trail Mix

Happy trails are healthy trails, and to fuel happy and healthy trails we need some amazing trail mix. This homemade vegan version is super-easy and tasty, packed with the goodness of nuts and seeds and the sweetness of dried cherries, raisins, and chocolate chips. I often make a big batch of this and store it in a dark cool part of my pantry. My kids really enjoy this snack, which makes me a happy mama because I know they’re fueling their bodies with nutritious food.
