A fun twist on homemade trail mix made with Cheerios! This Cheerio Trail Mix is filled with dried fruit, nuts and seeds to create a delicious trail mix combination. It's a customizable healthy snack to have on hand.
This Cheerio Trail Mix is full of nuts and seeds and dried fruit and makes for a convenient healthy snack.
Sure, you could buy trail mix at the store but making a homemade trail mix is much more fun in my opinion!
Plus it was so simple to make. It took all of 15 minutes to throw together and I was in control of all ingredients so I know exactly what went in to the recipe!
I love that this Cheerio trail mix is super customizable too. You can use whatever dried fruits and nuts you have on hand and even use a different flavor Cheerio like honey nut, multi grain or cinnamon!
Cheerio Trail Mix Ingredients
Cheerios: I usually use plain or honey nut. However, there are so many fun flavors and limited edition flavors too that you could try out. (Chocolate peanut butter, banana nut, apple cinnamon, etc.)
Dried fruit: I used dried cranberries and golden raisins in this recipe. Other options you can add in: dried pineapple, dried apricots, banana chips, dried mango, dried cherries.
Nuts and seeds: I used cashews, walnuts and pepitas (pumpkin seeds). You could also use macadamia nuts and salted almonds too!
Honey and Butter: these ingredients get melted with the peanut butter and tossed with the cheerios, nuts and dried fruits.
Other fun optional add ins: Coconut flakes, white chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, sunflower seeds, popped popcorn. You really can’t go wrong with whatever trail mix combination you choose. Have fun with it!
How to make it
