You know I’m all about being efficient with our time. That includes what we eat – so any snack recipe which takes hardly any time to make, and creates loads of delicious servings, is a definite winner in my book.
This is very easy to throw together. Once cold, you can make up little packets of trail mix and have them ready to grab whenever you need to leave the house with no decent meal in the foreseeable future. It’s also brilliant in lunchboxes. And very hand to have around for that 5pm “we’re starving but dinner’s HOURS away” scenario!”. Use whatever nuts and seeds you have – you’ll create your own uniquely delicious combinations!
This is a recipe from the Feeling Peckish plant-based snack recipe collection. If you love this one, there are more than 20 other winners available here!
