Summer time requires quick and easy snacks that you can throw in a beach bag or a diaper bag on the way to the park/beach/zoo/splash pad. This peanut butter trail mix completely fits the bill. It takes minutes (not even!) to make, and is perfect for travel or fun on-the-go.
All you need is a huge bowl, a big spoon and a few seconds to stir it up. Oh and did I mention it tastes amazing? All the peanut butter goodness you could ever want. I PACKED IT IN. Peanuts (duh), peanut butter M&M’s, Reese’s Pieces, peanut butter chips, peanut butter filled pretzels, and some raisins to even it all out. What’s a good trail mix without raisins, anyways?
I’d recommend throwing this peanut butter trail mix in snack-sized zip-top bags so it is easy to grab on the go. Not only that, but it is good portion-control. Trust me, you’ll need it. Especially if you’re a peanut butter fan. This stuff is addicting in a huge way.
If you aren’t a peanut butter fan or are allergic, you could adjust this recipe (but it would be a lot of adjusting!) or you could try these smoky roasted almonds, southwestern wheat thins or vanilla bean candied walnuts. All great snacking material!
