August 31st is National Trail Mix Day. This is a good opportunity to share my trail mix recipe, which I learned from my mom.
Use the quantities that you like, but the “base” is the nuts.
Coconut flakes (large)
Mix in a large bowl. Store in an air tight container.
This trail mix is a nice combination of protein, fruit and carbohydrates. It makes a great take along snack for trips or to carry on a long shopping day. It is also quite filling. You could add some pretzel bits or small cookies as well if you wish.
