Don's Trail Mix Printer Version
Vegan — 2 Carb Choices
Updated. © 1997 - 2006
I used to eat unsalted trail mixes by the bag. There were special time that that's all I ate. One such time was when I made a trip by horseback into the Sierra Nevada during a two-week stretch and all I took was a saddle bag full of homemade trail mix. This quick snack is based on that old recipe. Yu can leave out the dried fruits and the almonds if you like. The remaining ingredients would provide you "high energy" input with plenty of iron and potassium. Make a large batch and store in vacuum sealed jars. You can vacuum seal canning jars with a FoodSaver™ vacuum sealer. By the way, the horse I rode ended up "riding me." He went lame and I had to lead him through most of the trip. But it was easy. He follwed me without my having to hold his lead. I think he wanted the trail mix, too.
