At my old job, people would laugh and poke fun at what I would eat. It's funny because I would bring something and they would turn their nose up and the next time they would all want some. GO FIGURE!!!! The big joke was that "Pam will eat anything including grass and twigs." Well, they are partly right. I love trail mix. Hear me clearly.......I love what I make as trail mix. I don't typically buy the kind in the bag. Yes, there are some really good one's out there. They typically cost more than I want to pay but making my own is soooo much better. I get to control what I put in them. It is never the same twice. So I thought I would share what would typically go in mine.
Nuts- MUST!!!! Almonds, peanuts, walnuts and even pecans at time.
So, what I typically do is go to the store that sells all of this in a bulk section. I get a scoop of this and a scoop of that. Get home and dump all the bags into a giant bowl and stir it all up. Then either put it in an air tight container or separate into smaller bags for snacking. If I am doing the oats I would do the same except for the oats. They get mixed with about 1/2 cup of honey for every pound to pound and a half of oats. Spread onto a baking sheet and bake at 325 degrees for a total of 30-40 minutes but you MUST stir/toss every 10 minutes or the edges will burn. It's a food-of-love thing. Once it is COMPLETELY cooled, mix in with the other items and there you have it. Not only is it good for snacking but throw some on top of yogurt in the morning, throw a handful into your salad or even a small handful into tuna or chicken salad ( you might want to pick out the chocolate....I don't, but you can). It's just good!!!!!!!!
Try your hand at it and let me know what you put in yours. You will just love it!!!!!
