Trail mix makes a great snack for hiking, biking, skiing, walking or any other form of exercise where you need some fuel to help you keep going.

It's also great in packed lunches, and as breaktime snacks for the kids, instead of some of the too sweet, nutritionally devoid snack bars on the market that will cause a sugar crash after eating them. Just make sure if your kids are taking this trail mix to school that there isn't a "no nuts" policy in place, and if there is, leave the nuts out and substitute some gluten free wholegrain cereal instead..


As much or as little as you like of any of these:

walnut halves/pieces
sunflower seeds
pumpkin seeds
ribbon coconut
dried mango pieces
dried cranberries
dried apricots (preferably unsulphured)
dried pomegranate seeds
Incan berries
goji berries
dried apple rings
banana chips
optional: pieces of broken chocolate (source diet appropriate versions)



  1. Put all/any of the ingredients being used into a large tub with a lid, close lid and shake to mix. Dish out trail mix into small containers or snack size bags as required.
  2. Pieces of broken chocolate make a nice treat mixed in, however this won't be suitable for dairy free or vegan diets unless you source diet appropriate versions.
