Sweet and Salty Arizona Trail Mix is an abundant variety of nuts and seeds. Snack, road trip and trail ready it will keep you going for a long time.
Trail Mix wasn’t invented until the late 60’s. GORP (Good Old Raisins and Peanuts) also showed up at that time. It was a free and happy time and healthier eating habits were coming into vogue. There was no turning back and by the 70’s you could find a mix here and there in speciality stores. It was expensive but you could find it.
Slowly, trail mixes popularity grew and made it to the main stream but it wasn’t for over 20 years that people started making their own. With the addition of the internet recipes started popping up and being shared.
Today I am sharing my tried and true mix that has been in our household repertoire for many years. Pepitas are a new addition and they really add a lot to the texture and flavor. You can find these at many natural food stores so give them a try if you can.
Take a few minutes out of your day and you will have a healthy snack that you can easily take with you on any outing.
Arizona Trail Mix
- These measurements do not have to be exact. If you would like more of one seed or nut than another then it will still work perfectly.
- You can use raw nuts or roasted or a mix of both.
- In a large bowl add all of the ingredients.
- Mix well and store in an airtight container.
This trail mix will keep about one month if kept in the refrigerator and 6 months in the freezer.
