Admittedly, hiking up the side of a mountain isn’t for everyone…unless you bribe them with this recipe for pizza trail mix, from Brittany Mullins’s new cookbook, Mostly Veggies. It’s everything it sounds like: mixed nuts dusted in a savory blend of Italian seasonings and sun-dried tomatoes, ready and waiting to improve your snack time.
“Snack mixes are one of my favorite things to make (and eat),” she writes, “and I love to come up with fun flavor combos like this savory mix of roasted nuts, which tastes like pizza. Most trail mixes are packed with dried fruit and tend to have a lot of sugar, but this one has only 3 grams per serving. It’s the ultimate snack mix for lunch, hikes and road trips.”
