Hiking or biking this fall? Don’t leave home without the trail mix. This super-energizing version is ready in no time flat -- just dump and stir! Every ingredient is nutrient-rich: Both cereals provide whole-grain carbohydrates; dried cherries, dates and cranberries boost the antioxidants; and soy nuts and peanuts pack in the protein. In fact, soy nuts contain at least 33 percent more protein than most other nuts -- and dark chocolate soy nuts satisfy that chocolate craving and provide a double dose of heart-protective antioxidants (which are found in both nuts and dark chocolate).
Makes about 10 servings (1/2 cup each)
3/4 cup toasted o-shaped cereal
1/2 cup oat squares cereal
1/2 cup whole-grain Goldfish crackers
1/2 cup roasted salted soy nuts
1/2 cup honey-roasted peanuts
1/2 cup dried tart cherries
1/2 cup pomegranate-infused dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped dates
1/2 cup dark-chocolate-covered soy nuts
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl or container and toss lightly.
Store in a tightly covered container or a zippered freezer bag.
