Summer is in full swing around here. The kids are home for summer break and we are in vacation mode. We are gearing up for our family vacation to Idaho next week. Between planing for our trip and heading to the pool, having good snacks available is essential. So when I was recently asked by Van’s Simply Delicious to create some unique tips for using a new product I knew exactly what I would make.
On my weekly shopping trip to Meijer, I stocked up on some amazing new products from Van’s Simply Delicious. June is Celiac Awareness Month. While my husband isn’t allergic to gluten, he feels much better if he stays away from it. For the past year we have been experimenting with different gluten free products to find some that fits into our lifestyle. If you have a loved one who is on a gluten free diet, this snack is perfect.
It feels like we are constantly on the go during the summer so we need snacks that can travel to the pool or on a plane. Wholesome snacks that will please both adults and kids are what I aim for and this time I hit the nail on the head. This Sweet and Crunchy Sweet and Crunchy Gluten Free Trail Mix Trail Mix is extremely portable, delicious and everyone in the family loves it!
The combination of the sweet freeze-dried fruit, nuts, granola, and the crunch of the cereal and crackers makes gives this a sweet crunch that is perfect for munching. It will take just a few minutes to make so if you are in a hurry, it is the perfect solution.
Sweet and Crunchy Gluten Free Trail Mix
- 1 & 1/2 c • Van’s Simply Delicious Say Cheese Crackers
- 1 c • Van’s Simply Delicious Honey Nut Crunch Cereal
- 1/2 c • Van’s Simply Delicious banana Nut Granola
- 1 c Dried Banana Chips
- 1 c Freeze Dried Mixed Fruit

As you can see, this is a simple recipe that anyone in the family can help make. You could try to substitute other Van’s Simply Delicious products to change the flavor profile like Fire Roasted Veggie Crackers or Vans® Cocoa Sensation Cereal for a more sweet chocolate flavor. The possibilities are endless. Van’s Simply Delicious uses fresh, simple ingredients in their products that moms appreciate and kids love!
