The past month has flown by. We are in full travel mode and loving every moment of it. We normally stick around California in late winter to avoid weather issues, and we use this time to enjoy and explore everything that is within driving distance. Since we spend so much time in the car on these trips I’ve learned a few tips about food, kids, and keeping everyone happy and fueled up for an adventure.
Last weekend we were experiencing the sounds and sights of the ocean crashing onto the rocky cliffs in Central California and taking long walks at sunset. Throughout these memory filled days, we snacked on our favorite snack mixes. They are our favorites because I combine all of our favorite snacks into these two awesome mixes. My husband and I have a more “adult” like mix and the kids have a more kid-friendly mix, but we always end up snacking on each other’s mixes. I usually make a big batch of each of these at the beginning of our trip and we enjoy it the whole time.
These are both super easy to make… and you can substitute your own favorite ingredients too!
IngredientsCranberry Almond Granola, Shaved Coconut, Spiced Popcorn (fresh air popped popcorn sprinkled with melted coconut oil, salt and cinnamon), Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds, Dried Golden Raisins, Pumpkin Seeds,
Combine all of the above listed ingredients to make this yummy mix! Sometimes I add more popcorn than other ingredients and sometimes I add more granola than anything else. Just depends on how hungry I am. The granola has a mild cinnamon flavor that I just love so I complement it with the spiced popcorn!
