Trail mix is one of the easiest things to make, and there's such variety. It's perfect to take on a hike, as snacks for school, or throw some into your next oatmeal cookie dough for an out of this world cookie. The following trail mix is good for the heart. Blueberries have the highest antioxidants of almost any dried fruit, and you all know the benefits of dark chocolate. Most of the nuts in this trail mix recipe are salted, but if you want to be really healthy, cut back on the salt. And, of course, you can add anything else you'd like to the mix: other nuts, coconut, other berries.
