This is one of my favorite snacks of all time. A perfect combination of sweet and salty. The idea behind this recipe is that its just a mixture of your favorite nuts and goodies. You can add any combo of nuts and seeds. Just don't skip the roasting part because that makes all the difference.

Making your own trail mix assures you get exactly what you want so you don't end up with an entire bag full of leftover nuts and seeds. This healthy homemade trail will beat any mix you can get at the store.


HOW TO PROPERLY STORE

Once trail mix cools down, transfer them to an airtight container to be stored in the fridge or freezer. Refrigeration will help maintain its freshness longer so you can store it in the fridge for up to a week or 2 months in the freezer. If you decide to freeze, let them thaw at room temperature for about 15-20 minutes before eating.
