I made my own trail mix by making some granola (real easy, there is a recipe in one of my allergy books -- though I'm sure you can find a version anywhere on the internet, using oats and honey, plus a few other things you might want to add or not depending on allergies -- like coconut, cinnamon,etc.) -- then I took that granola and added stuff to it. Raisins, chocolate chips, Smarties, soynuts, sunflower seeds -- whatever you want that is safe. A smorgasbord of snacky stuff that you can eat by the handful!

Believe it or not, Enjoy Life Foods makes trail mix that's safe: seeds, dried fruits, & soy-free chocolate chips.

You can order from No Nuttin as well, I just did yesterday. They also have a granola type cereal, granola bars 2 types of trail mixes, ect..

We make our own granola. To make our "trail mix", we put some granola in a baggy, add some broken up pretzels, cereal (plain Cheerios or Rice Krispies), and some chocolate chips.

My kids really seem to like it.

I just purchased NOT NUTS! by Enjoy life. Nut free trail mix. No nuts, dairy, soy or gluten. My DS loved it!!!! Sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds sunflower oil, raisins, dried apples, chocolate chips, evaporated cane juice, chocolate liquor, non dairy cocoa butter, cranberries, rosemary extract. it says made in a dedicated gluten free and nut free facility, routinely batch tested for gluten, caselin and soy. I love it b/c DS is allergic to soy and usually the trail mixes substitute soy nuts for other nuts. I purchased it at the health food store.

I make a really easy one for my boyfriend. His job is really physical, so he needs one that's more protein/fat than carb-- He has no food allergies, but I do-- if you aren't allergic to seeds, this is a good combo...

We use... sunflower seeds (spitz i think they are) roasted soynuts (Vegnat is the brand we have right now) pumpkin seeds when possible-- I'll roast my own soon as its pumpkin season :) raisins/dried cranberries/cherries whatever I can get safely, broken banana chips, etc. mini chocolate chips (enjoy life or hershey's chip-its if its label is safe) shredded coconut (we use a store brand that is occassionally safe-- i call from my cell phone in aisle at the supermarket! LOL)

And then I shake it up, and refresh the little container when it runs low. Sometime its just soynuts, sunflower seeds, and raisins (boring :) )

We use salted sunflower seeds, he likes the sweet-salty combo.

I make a "breakfast trail mix" for my kids to eat occasionally. They love it. I mix up a few types of cereal, raisens or craisens, and safe chocolate chips. It is a great breakfast on the go. Sometimes if we are going somewhere I will make up a little baggy for each of the boys and they eat it in the van on the way. My oldest also likes to take it for his morning school snack.
