Pumpkin Seed Dried Cherry Trail Mix

Lynnda Cloutier


This is a great combo of crunchy, soft, salt, and sweet. It's wonderful on yogurt or as a quick energy snack before a workout. Any nuts you have on hand will make it even more addictive. Try salted peanuts. And if you really want to gild the lily, toss in some finely chunked bittersweet chocolate.Source: Unknown
