Trail mix is incredibly easy to make - if you use my handy ratios, you can't go wrong! I've included some ideas for trail mixes below the video

FILLER (3 parts/c) - any inexpensive bulky item will do FUNCTION (2 parts/c) - this should be a mix of protein/fatFUN (1 part/c) - this is anything fun you like (candy, chocolate etc)
The key to a good trail mix is to combine ratios properly. You are going to want to combine 3 parts of any bulk-energy-providing items you like - such as rice cereal; with 2 parts of energy sustaining items containing protein and fat, such as seeds and nuts; and 1 part of something fun - this could be candy, or a special exotic dried fruit etc. This is not difficult to do -combine sweet and salty, soft and crunchy, and colorful and plain, and your eyes and tongue will thank you.
let your imagination go wild!
I have provided some of my favorite mixes below
GORP (good ol' raisins and peanuts)
3 c plain or cinnamon Chex cereal
2 c shelled honey roasted peanuts (if allergic, use pumpkin or other seeds!)
1 c raisins or dried cranberries
Elvis Mix (peanut and banana)
6 c gluten free plain rice cereal like Chex
4 c dried honey roasted peanuts (this is very good with soynuts or sunflower seeds instead)
1 c sweetened banana chips
1 c peanut butter M&Ms (you can use a nut free, dairy free version instead if you like)
