Tag Archives: Trail mix

Trail mix. In other words, a jar full of goodness.

Trail mix does and always will remind me of those sleepless nights after our No.1 was born. She was a good sleeper but for the first several months, like most newborns, she would wake up once or twice for feeding during the nigh. Most of the time, while nursing, I was watching tv, mostly news… they would bore the heck out of me, so I would get hungry.

Trail mix was always a great resolution to my problem. I ate pounds of trail mix during those months. At first I was buying already mixed  stuff. Then, one day I run out of it but having a few different nuts, raisins and some leftover chocolate chips I made my own trail mix and from that day I have not bought another trail mix.

Now, every time I go to the store, I make sure to get some seeds, nuts and dried fruits in bulk… just in case of a craving, which I always have. If there are a few chocolate chip left somewhere, it is an extra  goodness… but it is not necessary.

     

This time I had everything… nuts and dried fruits, and chocolate chips.  

Ingredients: 

Fistful of walnuts

Fistful pecans

3 Tbsp. pumpkin seeds

1/4 cup dry cranberries

1 Tbsp. dry cherries

1/4 cup white chocolate chips

The concoction was wonderful! A little tart from all the dry fruits with the wonderful flavor from white chocolate chips; So good I thought, I should share it !

Have a wonderful day, my friends.
