My DH used to complain that no one sells plain old "Trail Mix" anymore. So, I threw this together for him and he said it was perfect; it tastes just like the stuff he used to eat as a kid. This makes about 4-5 pounds of trail mix, so scale it down. Or freeze the leftovers. Or spend your next week at college snacking on it. Or, do what I did and give it away in pretty containers on holidays. Tasty! Yet so incredibly simple and fast to make! I hope your SO loves it, too.

Directions See How It's Made
- Toss all ingredients into a paper grocery bag, except for the granola bars.
- Your goal is to crumble up the granola into bite-size pieces.
- So get a baseball bat, a rubber mallet, or a jackhammer, and unleash all of the stress and frustration you have accumulated so far this week upon the poor, unsuspecting box o' granola.
- (If he sees you doing this, your DH will be extra nice to you for the rest of the day.) Toss the granola bits into the bag with the nuts and fruit.
