An unusual and enjoyable mix of dried fruits and nuts that can be made in advance ready for use. This mix is ideal as a healthy snack or trail mix when at home or on the move. It can also be used in cakes and cookies or added to granola and other cereals.
Store the fruit and nut mix in a sealed container or jar and it will last for several months at least.
You do not have to have exact cup measures to make the mix. Any container is fine as long as you use the same one throughout.
