Cranberry, Nut and Pumpkin Seed Trail Mix

You’ll get a zip of citrus flavor from freshly grated lemon zest in every bite of this trail mix. It’s an easy combination of a handful of ingredients that yields a crisp and crunchy snack you and your family can enjoy all week.





Serves: 12

Serving Size: 1/3 cup per serving

  • 3 cups high-fiber cluster cereal (unsweetened or lowest added sugar possible) or unsweetened granola
  • 1/2 cup dried unsweetened cranberries or dried unsweetened tart cherries
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, dry-roasted if desired
  • 1 ounce (about 1/4 cup) unsalted shelled pumpkin seeds, dry-roasted if desired
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest


  1. In a large bowl, stir together all the ingredients until well blended.
Cook’s Tip: To dry-roast a large amount of nuts or seeds at one time, place them in a shallow baking dish. Roast them at 350 ̊F for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. You can freeze them in an airtight container or resealable plastic freezer bag so they can be ready at a moment’s notice. You don’t even need to thaw before using them.
Cook’s Tip: Store any leftover mix in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.
