Not Your Mother’s Trail Mix

Back to Nature trail mixesThis Back to Nature Bar Harbor Blend was all too good!  (Haven’t ried the Nantucket yet.)  The real surprise hit in the bag was the vanilla scented almonds – who knew?!

In truth, many of today’s trail mixes and granolas should be in the candy aisle.  They are often high fat, high sugar, and therefore high calorie – so read those nutrition facts carefully.

I have found a more favorable nutrition profile in Udi’s Artisan Granola, however, they are simple and simply delicious.  And then there’s Udi’s Gluten-Free granolas (a different company, I gather), and the totally addictive Bakery On Main gluten-free granola (try the cranberry-orange-cashew…).
