Trail Mix Recipes

A long car trip is only as successful as the food you eat along the way. Of course, anything you do is only as good as the food and company you have available. On our way down to the beach yesterday, we decided to take some of our own snacks to minimize pit stops. Our snack bag included two new trail mixes. Yum, yum! Here are the recipes:

Savory Seed Trail Mix:
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1 cup raw shelled sunflower seeds
6 tbsp soy sauce, separated
1/3 cup dark raisins
1/3 cup golden raisins

Toast pumpkin seeds in a non stick skillet until they begin to pop and turn golden brown. Remove from heat and add three tbsp soysauce and toss. Toast sunflower seeds in same skillet until golden brown. Add sunflower seeds to pumpkin seeds and toss with other three tbsp of soy sauce. Add raisins, and return to hot skillet (with heat turned off) to plump raisins and dry the soy sauce. Enjoy!!!
This recipe is even better the second day.

Toasted Coconut Trail Mix:
1 bag flake coconut
1 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup slivered almonds

Toast coconut in oven or toaster oven until golden brown (approx 10 minutes at 350 degrees). Be careful because coconut quickly goes from perfect to burnt. As soon as you smell the coconut, it is time to remove from heat. Toss with the cranberries and almonds and enjoy!!!
