It is Wednesday, August 31st– do you know what that means?? It’s National Trail Mix Day!!
As you may recall from my post on Cheerios a few months back, Cheerios created a process that separates the gluten and gluten-free grains in its oats, making the cereal gluten-free! Gluten free Cheerios are currently offered in Original, Honey Nut, Multi Grain, Apple Cinnamon, Chocolate and Frosted flavors, and also in a few, fun seasonal varieties!
Given it is National Trail Mix Day, and I love celebrating food holidays, I figured there is no better way to celebrate than with Gluten Free Cheerios! I mean, I have boxes in just about every cabinet in my home. I took the Chocolate and Fruity Gluten Free Cheerios (1 Cup of each) and tossed in a few gluten-free, vegan marshmallows, as well as pine nuts, pumpkin seeds, dried cherries, and raisins! Essentially all of my favorite foods in one bowl! This serves 2 people, so mix it all together, throw it in two baggies or containers, and take your trail mix with you as you venture out and about for the day!
Not only is this the perfect grab-and-go snack, but it is a hearty breakfast option, as well as an appetizer! I hope you enjoy your trail mix as much as I did!
