High-Energy Trail Mix

Submitted by: LANEYTEN

Introduction

I like to divide this into snack size bags for a quick, ready-to-go snack on the run. Keeps me from hitting the fast food! This has less fat & sodium than a bag of chips from the vending machine at work. :) I like to divide this into snack size bags for a quick, ready-to-go snack on the run.

    Great with a variation based on another recipe for fiber snacks listed on the recipe page. I melted the chocolate chips and mixed with fiber one cereal, let cool in bowl and broke them up and added to the ingredients listed - 5/1/08

    Great idea! I agree with some other posters, change one or two ingredients to make this even healthier, like raisins or dried cranberries instead of chocolate, and hot spicy peanuts instead of honey roasted for some extra zing. - 12/20/08

    THis is very easy to make and great to grab when you are on the road. Have made with dried blueberries and craisens. Many different combinations to make a different snack each time! - 5/2/08

    Great idea. Look forward to making it. I would put mine in snack bags of 1/2 cup each so I wouldn't be tempted to eat more when I'm out and about. Thanks. - 4/29/08

    This is a good recipe, but I would not use the honey roasted peanuts, plain roasted are fun, less sweet, less calories. I will also use carob and whole wheat pretzels. Nice concept. - 4/29/08

    According to Sun-Maid Raisins web site, 1/4 c of yogurt covered raisins has 130 calories and 1 protein. - 4/29/08

    I love YOLANDASAVAGE1's idea for using chocolate covered raisins, I usually use them rather than chocolate chips and raisins too! :) I sometimes break up rice cakes to add in place of the pretzels, or sometimes use popcorn. So many options! - 4/29/08

  • Delicious. Sometimes substitute craisins for raisins - 5/3/11

  • honey roasted peanuts are only 10 calories more than dry roasted! and I'll have to check the calorie difference on the yogurt raisins vs regular. Maybe the calorie difference will be negated by leaving out the sunflowers seeds? Great recipe-can't wait to play with it! - 1/15/11
