If you’re a veteran trail hiker/adventurer then you may prefer the good old trail mix, which is the first trail snack that comes to mind, some hate it and some love it. Either way it can be a nutritious hiking food that gives you just the right amount of energy to get you up the next hill or the last mile without feeling exhausted. So without further adu here is my recipe for your basic garden variety trail mix:
- 1/2 cup banana chips
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts
- 1/2 cup plain M&Ms
- 1 cup Cheerios cereal (any flavor)
Directions: Mix all ingredients together and place in snack size Ziploc bags. You may also substitute different cereals and or different types and brands of nuts, and seeds as well to make a mix more suited to yours or your hiking groups tastes.
