This quick and easy trail mix is dairy-free, requires no oven and is fairly healthy when compared to most desserts that will be calling your name this holiday season. This trail mix combines my favorite flavor combination – oreos and peanut butter. It will keep well in an air tight container for about a week. If you omit the mini oreos in this recipe it can also be gluten free. The red sprinkles add some festive color but you can change out the colors to match the occasion. This snack is prefect for a party or pack it for the long car ride to the festivities.
Prep Time: 20 minutes Makes one large bowl
1 12 oz box rice chex cereal
3/4 cup fluff
3/4 cup natural peanut butter
3 tbsp of coconut butter or coconut oil
2 cups mini oreos
1/2 cup mini dairy free chocolate chips
1/2 cup salted cashews
1/4 cup red and green sprinkles
Place the fluff, peanut butter and coconut oil/butter into a heat proof bowl and melt the ingredients on a stovetop or in a microwave. Stir the ingredients together until they are completely combined and smooth.
In a large bowl combine the cereal, oreos, chocolate chips, cashews and sprinkles. Pour the melted mixture onto the cereal mixture and stir until all ingredients are coated. Allow the mixture to cool and place in an air tight container for snacking all week.
