As someone who is a victim of nut allergies, it’s pretty much impossible for me to find any kind of trail mix that I can eat without risking my mortality. They usually include a variety of mixed nuts including Brazil nuts, hazelnuts and cashews. All of these I have problems with – with Brazil Nuts the most severe reaction.

For this reason, I almost never buy over the counter granola bars, energy bars or trail mixes. If I want to enjoy any of these, I am left to my own resources.

One easy way to make a delicious and interesting trail mix is to use breakfast cereal as the base. Don’t use sugar laden cereals like Fruit Loops or Apple Jacks. Use wholesome cereals like Corn Flakes, Raisin Bran, Rice Krispies or Cheerios. Kashi Vanilla Clusters cereal has become one of my new faves, very similar to the more readily available Honey Bunches of Oats. Just barely sweetened, it’s the perfect vehicle for my home made trail mix.

The hint of citrus and spice in this version is very addictive. I brought this as a pre class snack to my students who were taking one of my cooking classes and it was a big hit.

Before we get to today’s mix, take a look at some other snack ideas!

  1. What a wonderful energy boost up ! I love these Trail Mixes and am forever wanting to try new ones . The Nut allergy definitely puts you down while buying over the counter but makes you innovative to try new versions .

  2. No nut allergy here but I love the smaller nuts like the ones you have chosen to the big bulky ones like Brazil nuts. I am always looking for new combinations and will try this out. Bookmarked.
