Trail Mix Bars

I love trail mix, and these bars are delicious! Not only are they a healthy, pick-me-up when you need a snack, they also satisfy that sweet tooth desire. I will be making these for many years to come!

An exellent treat for everyone

With My husband's job there is quite often no time to take a break for lunch. This is a “great little something” to keep the crew going until there is time for a break. They loved them. My nephew also liked them and he doesn’t like anything homemade.
