Macadamia Trail Mix
4 votes


This basic trail mix recipe can be easily customized to your own tastes and availability of ingredients. I used toasted nuts, but if you prefer raw nuts, that's fine. This is a great portable snack that has plenty of good-quality protein and fat (and calories)--one handful will keep you going for a while!
