I’m the trail mix queen. I know, bold statement but trail mix is probably in the top five when I think of my favorite snacks. There are so many varieties and they always include two of my favorites: nuts and dried fruit. Oh, and chocolate. Gotta love trail mix with chocolate.

Pumpkin Spice Trail Mix

Last weekend at FitBloggin’, McCormick was one of the sponsors and they were giving away little packets of trail mix at their table. I decided to take a pack and as soon as I had one bite, I couldn’t stop eating it – per the usual when it comes to me and trail mix, but this batch was particularly good. I found the recipe for said trail mix on the McCormick website and decided to tweak it a bit to make a pumpkin spice version with pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice.

T’was a grand idea, if I do say so myself.

Pumpkin Spice Trail Mix

I packed some up for a friend (Hi Barb) and put some in a mason jar for one of Isaac’s co-workers who watched Olive last time we went out-of-town. And now I’m thinking I might take some to work with me this morning as well – I can’t be trusted with a huge jar of this stuff in our pantry. I wish I was kidding. At least that means it’s good, right? 😉

  1. I made this last night, and it tastes as good as it looks! I used it as an oatmeal topping this morning, and it was absolute perfection. Thanks for such an amazing recipe.

  2. I’m really glad that I saw this recipe. My sisters birthday is coming up and she is a huge pumpkin fan, as is my mom so I think I’ll be trying this out and making trail mix deliveries soon! 🙂

  3. This version looks very good for you! I like trail mix so much I won’t allow myself to keep it (or granola) in my house. I am what my friends call the trail mix/cereal monster. I can take down some trail mix.

  4. I can’t remember the last time I had trail mix. Fifth grade girl scouts, maybe. I think I need to start eating it because I like crunchy snacks and need to stear clear of the chips. I try not to do added sugar though. Will it taste okay without it?

  5. YUM! I love trail mix, but have never baked it myself. I always just throw dry ingredients together – this sounds delicious!

    I am heading to Chicago via Amtrak for the marathon this weekend, and this recipe sounds like the perfect train ride food!!

  6. I’m trying a variation of this tonight – pear puree, dried cherries, and some golden flax seed. Cannot wait! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂
