Savory and Salty Trail Mix

Sharing is caring!

It’s back-to-school season which is one of my favorite times of year. The start of Autumn, cooler mornings and nights (no more night sweating hopefully), and the feeling of fresh starts in the air. I’ve always felt late August and early September felt more like a new year than New Years Day. Sure, the calendar switches over but schedules change in August, school years begin, dance school years, sports, etc…it’s a magical time!

Me dreaming about the Autumn weather…

Sweet and savory trail mix? Yes, please!

A friend of mine was asking for some ideas for snacks at their kids school and trail mix is one thing we landed on! So this trail mix only takes three ingredients and will leave you satisfied from the flavor and crunch, but also full until your next meal/snack. If your school or classroom is nut-free due to allergies, swap the nuts for sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds or pretzels. Check it out! This recipe is three ingredients!

Super simple, right? I did use Moon Cheese ® for this mix which is a brand I really like! However, I’ve seen cheese crisps from Aldi that work well and other brands at grocery stores. The cereal is of course easy to swap too. I wanted something with fiber but a hint of sweetness which is why I chose Life brand. 

Would you try this? I made it for my husband and it was gone real fast! Let me know what you think.
