PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY TRAIN MIX

Peanut butter and jelly trail mix is my all-time favorite trail mix. I first had this trail mix about 13 years ago. I had just gotten my driver’s license and my friends and I took a road trip to St. Paul, Minnesota to visit my grandma. She made this mix for us and we absolutely fell in love with it. She made a triple batch and we ate it all. Mind you, there were 3 of us, so you can see how much we liked it.

I love this for many reasons. First, it has peanut butter in it and you all know how much I love peanut butter. The more I can eat, the merrier. Second, it’s one of the easiest trail mixes to whip together. I’m talking a mere 5 minutes people. That is awesome. Lastly, the dried fruit is da bomb! You can use virtually any kind of dried fruit you want. I love using dried mixed fruit in mine. I buy a package that has cranberries, cherries and blueberries. When I first ate this mix, it was made with just dried cranberries and it was still delicious.

Tips for the best mix:

  • I always use peanut butter captain crunch: I feel like the store brand doesn’t have as much of a peanut butter taste as I like.

  • For the peanuts, I like just plain cocktail peanuts, but feel free to use any kind you like.
  • You should be able to find peanut butter chips next to the chocolate chips. Reese’s peanut butter chips are the ones I use.
  • Like I said above, any kind of dried fruit your family likes would work well in this recipe. Feel free to explore!

This makes a great after school snack for the kids (or adults). Just divide into snack sized baggies so the kids can just grab one when they get home ?

Happy snacking!
