Trail is mix is practically the perfect snack: inexpensive, tasty, and portable. All important attributes in a snack for busy parents. Which is kind of an oxymoron. We’re all busy, right?
I’m pretty picky about my trail mix. It needs to have the right ingredients for an energy boost, not too many nuts (ha), and a good balance of salty and sweet.
Some store-bought trail mixes can be a bit….tasteless. Which is why I prefer to make my own.
