Harvest Trail Mix

A great grab-and-go snack or a party treat this Harvest Trail Mix takes minutes to put together and is flavorful and fun!


Are you a snacker? I know I am and I like having different options around when the craving calls. Sometimes its sweet, sometimes it’s salty but most of the time it’s both. So it’s nice to have something a bit healthier on hand so I’m not always grabbing for chips or a candy bar. This Harvest Trail Mix easily combines fall-flavored ingredients and is the perfect combo of sweet and salty. This is a fun snack that you can grab-and-go in a hurry, have around in a bowl at parties, or to just have around to snack on throughout the day. Going pumpkin picking or apple picking? Take some of this Harvest Trail Mix trail with to snack on!

I can’t find Cinnamon Chex, can I use another?

Yes! You can use any Chex Cereal that you’d like. Rice, Honey Nut, Chocolate, Wheat, Apple Cinnamon, etc. Note: You can make a version of cinnamon Chex if you’d like. Take the plain rice Chex and place in a bowl. Pour about a tablespoon and a half of melted butter evenly over the Chex then sprinkle with a little cinnamon sugar and stir until it is all evenly coated. Then place the check mix in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake at 350F degrees for about 5-10 minutes until the Chex is dried and the cinnamon sugar coating is baked on. You may need to stir it around at least once so it dries evenly.

Where do I find dried apple chips?

These are usually located in the grocery store by the raisins and nuts. But could vary store-by-store. A lot of times they will be in bags but at some health food stores, they might be in bins to serve yourself.

Do I have to use white chocolate chips?

No, you can use any chocolate chip that you’d like. Dark chocolate is a great option. It will make it a little bit healthier with its antioxidant properties.

Can I use other types of pretzels?

Yes, of course. if you would rather not use the mini pretzels you can use the mini pretzel rods, pretzel crisps, pretzel snaps, white chocolate covered pretzels, braided pretzels, pretzel rounds and more. Whatever type you prefer, you can use in this recipe.

Can I use other nuts in this?

I like walnuts in this but I have also used pecans and almonds and both are great!

How long is this good for?

Stored in an airtight container or ziptop bag, this should last at room temperature for at least a month.
