Honey ‘n Spice Toasted Trail Mix with Mixed Nuts and Seeds


This Honey ‘n Spice Toasted Trail Mix is seriously addictive! It’s perfectly sweet, gently salted, spiked with warm spices, and very nutty. It’s also packed with a variety of nuts and seeds for a healthy, filling, and naturally dairy-free snack on the go. And of course, you can change things up based on what you have on hand. The simple spices go with any nut or seed, and almost any dried fruit (blueberries, cranberries, chopped apricots, etc). We originally shared this recipe over fifteen years ago, but I’m giving the post an update!
