Quick, easy and delicious. Store-bought trail mix is often heavier on the sugar than you’d expect. The trick to this trail mix is starting with a star-earning cereal and keeping the proportion of dried fruit and chocolate in balance with filling items like soy nuts and pumpkin seeds. If your family isn’t a fan of any one specific ingredient, use this recipe as a template to play around with making trail mix you can all agree on!


  • 4 cups Guiding Star-worthy cereal
  • ¾ cup dry roasted, unsalted soy nuts
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup raisins
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ¾ cup dry roasted, unsalted pumpkin seeds


  1. Combine ingredients and store in air-tight container.
