Trail mix is a popular travel and hiking food because it is easy to eat anywhere, anytime. But unfortunately it's hard to find ready made ones and you can't control the ingredients. So I decided to make my own using readily available ingredients you can find at your nearest grocery store.
Step 1: Choose your favorites!
Staple ingredients are dried fruits and nuts so we'll go with that. Just remember that the key to choosing for your mix is they should be dry and won't stale fast. Some people like to add chocolate and marshmallows but I don't like my mix too sweet.
Step 2: Start mixin'
Prepare 1 big bowl and a spoon to mix. Arrange your ingredients so you wont miss one.
Step 3: Packing
I use sandwich size ziplocks. A gram weighing scale can help measure the how much you need but this is optional. You can put how much you want per pack lol
My mix is usually just around 250-300 grams per pack because I don't eat a lot on the trail.
Step 4: Enjoy
I just don't eat my mix when hiking/travelling, I also eat hem for quick snacks at home or when I like something to nibble on when I work. The advantages of making your own mix is that you can choose your ingredients,control the quantity and enjoy it anytime.
