Today is National Trail Mix Day, which is awesome because it’s nearly impossible to mess up Trail Mix! Summer is nearing an end, but there is still plenty of time to get out there and enjoy nature and hit the trails with your favorite mix! Trail Mix is perfect for a boost of energy, and keeps you energized for the long haul. Bonus – it’s delicious!  We’ve got a couple of great recipes for you, but don’t be afraid to get creative within our YouScoop bulk section.  Of course, if you want animal crackers in your Trail Mix, who are we to stop you!?

Paleo Trail Mix

1 Cup Whole Almonds
½ Cup Whole Cashews
½ Cup Raw Pumpkin Seeds
½ Cup Raisins
½ Cup Dried Currants
½ Cup Dried Blueberries
½ Cup Coconut Flakes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Toast the nuts for 10 minutes until golden brown. Let the nuts cool and then combine all ingredients.  Store in an air tight container.


Back To School Trail Mix

1 Cup Granola
1 Cup Crispy Rice Cereal
½ Cup Pecan Halves
½ Cup Banana Chips
¼ Cup Raisins
Handful of Diced Dried Fruit
Chocolate Chips (if it needs some sweetening)

Combine all ingredients and store in an air tight container. Seriously. That’s it.

Now, go take a hike!
