As I mentioned in my previous post, I am trying to limit refined sugar in my children's (and mine!) food. However, it is still nice to let them have a sweet treat occasionally, so i try to minimise the damage where I can by making it myself from relatively healthy ingredients.
This trail mix is very easy to make, keeps well for about a month in an airtight container and has just the right mix of healthy and slightly naughty ingredients.
1 cup dark choc chips (use good quality chocolate)
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup chopped dry roasted almonds
4 cups high fibre cereal (I like All-Bran Dual)
Combine all ingredients. About 1/3 cup is one serve.
