Dried apricots
Dried pineapple
Kashi Go-Lean cereal
Dried cherries

This extra coating is optional. It gives the trail mix an extra flavor kick and an essential fatty acid boost.
1 1/2 tsp. melted olive oil based spread
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
dash of seasoning salt
dash of garlic powder
dash hot pepper sauce.

With Coating: Preheat oven to 250. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine 8 ingredients of your choice. In a separate small bowl whisk melted olive oil based spread and seasonings. Pour the liquid mixture over the dry mixture. Toss until all ingredients are well coated. Bake for 25 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes to ensure even toasting. For mixture without coating mix all ingredients together and store in airtight container.

Personal Notes:
It is best to measure 1/4 cup mix into small containers rather than nibbling out of the big container. This is CLEAN EATING!
