Easter Treat: Peter Cotton Trail Mix
Easter is here! And what is better than an Easter themed snack?
One of the best parts of becoming a Mom was the opportunity to carry snacks around with me. I know, I know it sounds petty, but I was already a snack lover pre-kid, but carrying an entire bag full of snack as a 20-something year old adult-kind of made me look crazy. But as soon as I had Lady A, my snack game was on!
First I told people, it was because I was breastfeeding and I needed the snacks and the calories to make milk. Then, it was because she needed a snack when we were out and about around town. So now, as a Mom, I get to carry an endless supply of snacks on me full-time and just blame my daughter.
And, as an avid snack lover, I love a good trail mix. There is nothing like combining three or four of your favorite snacks together so you can gooble them all up at once.
So, when I saw the Annie’s Organic Graham Bunnies for Sale at Harris Teeter, I knew that I could make an amazing Trail Mix that my daughter would love and that I could snack on too.
Plus, since it was about to be Easter, I decided to be cheesy and call it “Peter Cotton Trail Mix”. Aren’t I punny?
It was so good, I had to share it with y’all! See the easy recipe below and let me know what you think!
What you need:
Now this is so easy a toddler can do it.
Combine all the ingredients into a gallon Ziploc bag and Shake it! Now, when I shake it, I prefer to do some dance moves, but that’s just me……..
Then, once everything is thoroughly shaken. Enjoy!
This is a healthy-ish snack that the whole family will enjoy. I left it out for our guest to eat while visiting and the adults and children loved it.
