Dianne and Sean's Homemade Trail Mix
from Dianne Hemming - Northern Alberta, Canada

Combine equal amounts of the following in resealable bags for use in camping, hiking , bike riding or family fun.
You can substitute favorite dried fruits or mix and match.
I use organic dried fruit whenever it is available.
If there are allergies, substitute allowed nuts and fruits.

  • unsalted pumpkin seeds
  • unsalted sunflower seeds
  • dried pineapples (cut up)
  • dried dates (cut up)
  • banana chips
  • dried mixed fruit mix (cut up)
  • currants
  • raisins
  • unsweetened coconut
  • pecans
  • peanuts
  • pine nuts
  • cashews
  • walnuts
Combine and enjoy. Keep covered tightly in the fridge when not snacking.

I am a mother of four and am concerned with the amount of processed foods in their diets.
We live in a semi-isolated area (Northern Alberta) and the local stores do not carry vegetarian recipe books, nor does our local library.
In Alberta (Canada's Beef Country) it seems that being a vegetarian or even semi vegetarian is not politically correct.
I would like to exchange recipes that I have found over the years with other people in similar circumstances.
