Put the store-bought trail mix to the side and mix up your own easy and delicious snack! Visit your local grocer’s bulk food department and try out one of these tasty trail mix recipes. Just mix the ingredients in a large bowl, store in an airtight container and enjoy!


Super S’mores Trail Mix
Makes 6 cups
– 1 cup chocolate chips
– 1 cup mini marshmallows
– 1 cup Annie’s Honey Bunny Grahams
– 1 cup mini pretzels
– 1 cup chocolate covered peanuts

Be careful to not leave this mix in a warm car or in the sun or you’ll have a gooey, chocolaty mess on your hands (much like a traditional s’more)!


Black Forest Trail Mix
Makes 6 cups
– 1 ½ cups dried cherries
– 1 ½ cups dark chocolate chips
– 1 ½ cups unsalted almonds
– 1 ½ cups unsalted cashews

Again, don’t leave this mix in the heat or the chocolate will melt!


Spiced Pumpkin Trail Mix
Makes 6 cups
– 1 cup pumpkin seeds
– ¾ cup cinnamon glazed pecans
– 2 cups dried cranberries
– 1 cinnamon granola clusters (such as Nature Valley or Mamma Chia)
– ¾ cup Blue Diamond Pumpkin Spice almonds
– ½ cup of chocolate covered espresso beans

It’s not fall without a little pumpkin spice, right? Take advantage of the autumn flavors and make this much healthier version of your favorite fall beverage.


Power Trail Mix
Makes 6 cups
– 1 ½ cup shelled pistachios
– 1 ½ cups dried cranberries
– 1 cup unsalted walnuts
– 1 cup dark chocolate chips
– 1 cup toasted coconut flakes

This nutrient-rich trail mix will give you the energy you need to get through your next hike.


Kid-Friendly Trail Mix
Makes 6 cups
– 1 cup Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies
– 1 cup M&M’s
– 1 cup mini pretzels
– 1 cup air-popped popcorn
– 1 cup Cheerio’s
– 1 cup dried blueberries

Lots of kids dislike or are allergic to nuts, so try this nut-free mix full of treats they love. Better yet, let your kids help by mixing up their own trail mix; just don’t let them fill the entire bowl with candy!
