    This is great for snacking, and is super easy to make. Enjoy!

    Trail Mix

    4 cups Yummy Granola
    1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
    2/3 cup dried cranberries
    2/3 cup raisins
    2/3 cup sliced dried apricots

    Combine all ingredients and enjoy!

    Nutrition bonus: Dried fruit has a lot of fiber, and dried cranberries are a good source of antioxidants, which help fight cancer. Chocolate also has antioxidants, but I don’t think the concentration in semi-sweet chocolate balances out the sugar and calories. But I’ll take any excuse to eat chocolate!
