Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole-grain “O” cereal
  • 1 cup whole-grain “square” cereal
  • ½ cup walnuts or peanuts low or no salt
  • ½ cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds low or no salt
  • 1 cup dried cranberries low or no added sugar (or other dried fruit such as apricots)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • Wash hands with soap and water.
  • In a clean, dry bowl, combine the nuts and seeds with the cinnamon.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and mix well with a spoon.
  • Store in an airtight container.

Notes

  • Look for store brand or generic cereals with ingredients such as brown-rice, rolled oats, whole-grain barley, whole-grain corn, whole oats, and whole wheat.
  • For a quick and healthy grab and go snack, prepare 1/4-cup snack bags ahead of time. Be sure to wash your hands before making these snack bags. Don’t forget to wash your hands before eating this snack too!
  • Since trail mix will not be cooked, it is considered a “ready to eat” food. That means it is important that all surfaces that touch the food, including hands, should be clean.
