    Trail Mix Bars

    Alicia Peterson from Port Orchard, WA

    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

    Gloria Edden from AVON, MT

    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.
