As it turns out, I’m just basking in fall this week. I’m celebrating all of the fantastic flavors that are at their best this time of year. From apples and pecans to dried cranberries, I love them all. That’s why I’m putting them all together into a recipe that’s so simple it’s almost not even a recipe, but I sure hope you love it as much as I do. Today, thanks to Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries, I’m sharing my Harvest Trail Mix. This is a go-to snack because it is packed with healthy snack foods and a little bit of sweetness.
I like to keep big batches of this trail mix on hand because it goes quick. The kids love it, and it makes a great mid-afternoon treat. On those busy school afternoons, it’s nice to have something ready that I don’t have to feel guilty about giving them. Even better, it’s easy to put into a cup that they can just grab and go about their way. No muss, no fuss! The combination of Craisins® Dried Cranberries, raisins, pumpkin seeds, dried apples, pecans, and dark chocolate pieces is just irresistible.
Craisins® Dried Cranberries are a pantry staple for me. I like to buy them in large bags so that I can use them in baked goods, on salads, and as part of snacks like this. We’re Sam’s Club members, so I grab them there whenever I can. They might not be available in all of the Sam’s Club locations, though. The really cool thing is that you can get them anywhere, so if your Sam’s Club doesn’t have them, another local store probably does. These bags I grabbed from Harris Teeter when I was there the other day. They’re usually in the snack food aisle.
They really are a convenient way to get your fruit servings in. After all, a quarter of a cup of Craisins® Dried Cranberries are equal to a half-cup fruit serving. How much easier can it be?
