Crunchy almonds, tart cranberries and sweet white chocolate chips make the ultimate road trip trail mix – it’s the perfect blend of sweet and salty!
We just got back from a fun long weekend at the beach. Luckily it’s not too long of a drive for us, making it a great road trip destination. Huntington Beach was gorgeous (as always) and we were blessed with gorgeous weather the entire weekend.
When it comes to road trips, the most important thing to remember is good snacks – in my book if you don’t have good snacks in the car, it’s not really worth going anywhere. I also always need to have a ginormous bottle of water with me for the entire ride as well. I like my snacks pretty well rounded, I go by the rule of something salty, something healthy and something sweet. Bonus points if one of those is also crunchy!
Since I was making the drive with a couple of kiddos in the car, I knew snack stops might not be as easy or fun as they usually are, so I decided to pack a few to save myself the trouble. Which brings me to this Road Trip Trail Mix. It’s meets all of my criteria – the almonds are both salty and healthy, the cranberries could also fall in the healthy category, and the white chocolate chips round it out with a little sweet. By far my favorite trail mix combo ever – mostly because who can resist white chocolate!
It takes just minutes to throw together and you’d never know it wasn’t a pre-packaged mix making it the perfect way to flavor your summer adventure!
1 cup lightly salted almonds, such as Blue Diamond
