This is the trail mix for people who are allergic to nuts and/or chocolate but still crave the sweet/crunchy taste! Frustrated for years at not being able to buy trail mix, I decided to share what I came up with. As U2 would say, I think it's "even better than the real thing"! The carob chips add a bit of fat, but, for non-chocolate eaters, they add that extra something you need here. If you can have chocolate, I recommend using dark choc. chips instead (no sat. fat!), but you may want to up the cranberries to 1 cup for sweetness. These are rough proportions--adjust to your taste.
