Anyone who's read this blog knows that I truly love trail mix. It's an easy way to get protein, healthy unsaturated fats and vitamin E into your kids diets. Furthermore you give them an additional helping a fruit if you use varieties that have dried fruit. The mix that I have is actually pretty heavy on the dried berries so I added cashew pieces and sunflower seeds to the mix for a little more variety and a little less sugar. But they still came out sweet, almost like a dessert bread stick.
I hope that your family likes these... we certainly gobbled them down. Enjoy!
Trail mix bread sticks
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 10-13 minutes
I canister ready made bread stick dough
1 cup trail mix
2 tablespoons berry preserves or jam
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon honey
Preheat oven to 350F.
Lay out bread sticks on an ungreased baking sheet. Spread preserves on the dough, then sprinkle on cinnamon. Sprinkle on trail mix, then press into the dough with your fingers. Twist the sticks (some trail mix will probably fall out, just press it back into the dough) and press the ends down flat onto the baking sheet Brush on honey with a pastry brush. Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until golden. Let cool for a minute or two, then remove from the baking sheet.
