Cranberry & Salted Caramel Trail Mix

badge_pov1-generic-20140516164653

This 5-ingredient trail mix packs flavor and nutrition, and can be prepped for the whole week in just a few minutes. I knew I wanted to blend sweet and salty when creating this recipe, so we teamed up with PLANTERS to harness the power of their new salted caramel peanuts. Salted caramel peanuts, y’all. Are you kidding me?! I love snacking on these yummy PLANTERS peanuts, and as a busy mama always on the go, this recipe is a go to. Most mornings I am flying out the door to hit the trail for my morning hike. Squeezing in time to prepare a snack seems impossible (I’d rather hit the snooze button a few dozen more times), so I appreciate how simple it is to just grab a handful and hit the road!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup PLANTERS Salted Caramel Peanuts
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Prepare

  1. Nothing fancy here! Just combine all ingredients in a bowl, then divvy up into snack size portions to get you through the week! Makes 5-6 servings.
