Five minute trail mix is a quick and easy snack to keep on hand for between meals, on a hike, or after a workout. A nice blend of sweet and salty ingredients makes this trail mix an addictive pantry staple.
While this is a simple recipe with only 5 ingredients, I think it deserves its own post. Sometimes you need reminding of the snacks you could be making from home. It makes me feel good to have a stash of homemade trail mix on hand.
Plus, the varieties are endless! Don’t like almonds? Substitute with cashews, walnuts, or pepitas. I used mini M&M’s as you can see in the photos, but you can use peanut M&M’s or chocolate chips as well.
I love these small disposable containers. They hold 1/2 a cup of trail mix perfectly. Just toss it in your bag and you’re good to go. My husband will bring his empty container in each night so I can refill it. So easy!
