Triple Nut Mix Cubed

A colleague of mine, and regular reader of this blog, shared a favorite recipe with me, of which I am now sharing with all of you. It’s called “Triple Nut Mix Cubed,” which is a great name for anyone who enjoys snacks and math! Here is the recipe that involves three types of nuts, three dried fruits and three cereals. I have modified it a bit so that it is “sensitive.”

Three types of nuts: such as peanuts, walnuts, and sliced almonds

Three dried fruits: including cherries (apple juice infused), raisins (unsweetened), and dates

Three cereals: such as brown rice cereal (Erewhon makes a good cane sugar free brand), millet rice that is fruit juice sweetened (Nature’s Path is a good brand), and granola (Udi’s Vanilla is my favorite and honey is the ingredient that makes it sweet)

Once you mix it up, enjoy plain or add milk for a great breakfast, or add yogurt for a healthy snack. This mix would also be a tasty salad topping!

The tricky task is to find cereal without cane sugar, so look for brands that are infused with fruit juice, have no sugar, or are sweetened with honey. The sweetness in this trail mix will come from the dried fruits and dates.

Thanks, BV, for sharing this great idea! If anyone else has a good trail mix idea, please reply to this post!
