Cranberry-Walnut Trail Mix

With our goal of a zero waste home,  it was hard not buying pre-packaged snacks at first. (Tortilla chips are still our only occasional exception). But now when we're craving a snack we reach for a  healthier homemade (and more affordable) choice: crackers with cheese, stove top popcorn with coconut oil, and one of my favorites, home made cranberry-walnut trail mix. I know it must be good since my brother-in-law Brian couldn't keep his hands off of the batch I made for my sister!

Cranberry-Walnut Trail Mix

1/3 cup organic walnuts
1/3 cup organic toasted (unsalted) pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup organic (sweetened) dried cranberries
1/4 cup delicious organic chocolate chips

Mix and enjoy!

(All of these ingredients are available in the bulk section at your local food co-op or Whole Foods).

Some of my other favorite mixin' ingredients include: dried apples (we're out of our own dehydrated ones), banana chips, almonds, cashews, pistachios, and toasted oats.

Jeremy's favorites include: raisins, chocolate chips, and peanuts.

What are some of yours?
