Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix together.
Store in a glass container in the fridge and it's ready to eat when you want a snack.
Some other options for your Healthy Homemade Trail Mix could be: cashews, sunflower seeds, pine nuts, or dried coconut. Mix it up and try different ingredients to find the combo that you love best!
* You can use raisins, dried blueberries, or dried cranberries instead of dates. Each offer a delicious addition in trail mix.
NOTE ~ Dried fruits offer a good alternative to sugar because of their natural sweetness.
