Spicy Honey Mustard Trail Mix

Trail mix is delicious – too delicious. I’m fairly sure it’s defined as “a calorically-deceptive mixture of nuts, seeds, grains, dried fruit and other portable snacks”. A handful of trail mix is less like a snack and more like a meal. It’s designed to be a quick source of energy but there are thousands of varieties, many of which aren’t that nutritious. It can also be pretty expensive. The best solution is to make your own. I tried to strike a good balance between fat, carbs and protein. This spicy-sweet mix combines spicy peanuts with honey mustard pretzels and dates. No measurement or ingredient is absolute, modify this recipe to your liking.


2 cups spicy peanuts
2 cups salted soynuts
1 cup raw almonds
2 cups grape nuts or other firm cereal
1 cup peanut roasted chickpeas
2 cups pretzel nugget pieces (honey mustard & onion flavor)
1 + 1/2 cups chopped dates


1. Combine all ingredients in a large sealed bag and shake until well mixed. The grape nuts tend to sink so shake the bag around before each snack session. For best results, transfer to a bowl or napkin before eating or you will eat to much!
