This Healthy Homemade Nut Free Trail Mix from Better With Cake is a delicious, portable snack that will do the trick if you need something filling but want to keep it healthy. I recently took some on a car trip with my husband, and we both munched on it. He thought it was great and said, “See, now this is good just like it is. It’s not trying to be something it’s not.” (he was referring to some of the recipes I try that are supposed to be “substitutes.”) While those recipes do have their place, overall I agree with him. The best recipes are the ones that aren’t trying to take the place of something else – they’re just good as they are.
Note: I used goji berries as my dried fruit, but as you’ll see with the recipe, you can really use anything. My husband wants to try it with dried cranberries and pineapple. I also used cacao nibs instead of chocolate chips, and they added just the right amount of sweetness without being too much.
