Nut-Free Trail Mix


Updated July 10, 2007

GORP--good old raisins and peanuts--is obviously not so good for nut allergies. Packaged trail mixes use a variety of nuts, and even versions that don't contain nuts often pose cross-contamination risks.

Sunflower and pumpkin seeds work well in trail mix. Be careful, however, to buy a brand without cross-contamination concerns. For the utmost safety, roast your own pumpkin seeds. Many national brands of chocolate chips are not nut-free; I've suggested a brand from an allergy-safe manufacturer. Dried fruit and raisins are a less likely source of allergens but they, too, should be checked.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 2 parts sunflower seeds or roasted pumpkin seeds
  • 2 parts raisins
  • 2 parts Enjoy Life Nut-Free Granola, or similar nut-free cereal
  • 2 parts dried fruit of your choice (e.g., apricots, cherries, or dates)
  • 1 part Enjoy Life Choco Chips, or other nut-free chocolate chips (optional)


Combine all ingredients in an airtight container. Dried fruits will get sticky after a few days in warm weather, but trail mix will keep at room temperature for quite a long time.
