Homemade Trail Mix

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.

Glad it has chocolate. I have a Tim Tam addiction, so this is a good substitute. I guess I can share with the kids too!

I love Tim Tams as well, but they are sooo bad for you. Check out the book Additive Alert - once you read it, you will really limit Tim Tams to chocolate emergencies only!!
