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?
