This simple recipe for trail mix uses pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries and mixed nuts. Spiced with ground cinnamon it ticks all the boxes for when you need an easy snack.
You are probably wondering why on earth I am listing a recipe for something that does not really need a recipe? I usually go to gym in the afternoon and on my way home I snack on a selection of nuts, seeds and dried fruit. For the past year I have been buying these little packs and frankly I am not sure why I have spent so much money on eating a store bought snack that I could easily make at home. I am sharing the recipe for trail mix in case you too have never thought to make this at home. This trial mix has a selection of the nuts, seeds and dried cranberries that I like but you can use what you prefer. I also used these as a filling for my weekly rusk recipe, which I will be sharing with you soon.
