Football Friday Snacks – Tasty Trail Mix
As we get ready for another weekend of football, we wanted to share a healthy snack idea!
Snacking and healthy are two of a kind in this homemade trail mix recipe. Next time you are in the stands, cheering for your favorite football team, take this nutritious trail mix along with you. In this recipe, we use nuts for good fats and dried fruit for vitamins and minerals to give you a sweet, salty and satisfying sideline snack!
Tasty Trail Mix
1 cup combination of diced dried fruit, such as prunes, apricots, pears and apples (we used apricots in ours)
1/2 cup raisins and/or dried cherries or cranberries
1 1/2 cups unsalted almonds
1 cup chopped walnuts
- If you are using larger dried fruits like apricots, cut them into smaller pieces if you prefer.
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
- Transfer to snack sized plastic bags to take to the game!
