Pumpkin Spice Trail Mix Recipe

Nut free trail mix

A nut free trail mix is great for those you love who have nut allergies. I have a nut allergy and sometimes it can be a real pain. Luckily my nut allergy to peanuts and tree nuts (except coconut) is not that severe. You’ll just often catch me asking if there’s nuts in a dish, messing with food to figure out if there’s nuts in it or sniffing cookies and brownies. Again for nuts.

The goal of this treat is to provide a quick grab and go snack that has some substance and will help keep you full between meals. With the mix of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and whole grains, you’ll get just that. Healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring and it definitely doesn’t have to be bland or void of chocolate!

How to make trail mix

This pumpkin spice trail mix is really quick and easy to make. You’ll need:

Pumpkin seeds

Sunflower seeds

Plain rice Chex

Dark chocolate chips

Raw honey

Pumpkin spice

Place all the dry ingredients in a large bowl, mix in the honey and pumpkin spice together. Drizzle on top, mix, and you’re done! If pumpkin spice isn’t your jam, cinnamon sugar would be killer here. Feel free to add in any nuts you like too, I’ll just be a little jealous!

Don’t forget to pin this recipe for later. You’ll be coming back to it often 🙂

    I love a good pumpkin anything — falling into the “basic girl” role pretty easily. But these look like such a great snack that I would love to try them out myself!!!!
