Bettyskitchen's picture
  Oat bran cereal 2 Cup (32 tbs) (Cracklin Variety, You May Use A Different Type Of Finger-Friendly Cereal)
  Golden raisins 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Dried cranberries 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Sunflower seeds 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Salted toasted almonds 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  English walnuts 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

Mix all ingredients together and store in a large zip lock bag or in individual snack bags. This particular mix has 2000 calories total, so for a snack that is easy to pack in a lunch box, use ½ cup Trail Mix, which is 250 calories. If you doing an activity that burns a lot of calories or eating the mix over a long period of time, you may want to pack along 2 cups worth, which is 1000 calories. It is very light and convenient to carry with you for those times when you are traveling and don't have a good opportunity to stop for a meal. Sometimes I eat about ½ cup right before a hard workout at the gym. I hope you find a use for this mix. It has very healthy ingredients for the amount of calories it provides. Have a beautiful day! -- Betty
