Between cross country practices and meets, a preschooler who is always "starving" the second she gets home from school, and my son & I's more frequent weekend hikes, I am always trying to come up with tasty & satisfying snacks that are also perfect for my on-the-go family. Lately we have really been into trail mixes. I can throw a few scoops of trail mix into plastic baggies for quick snacks for my son to munch on during meets or to toss into my backpack before a Sunday hike. Recently I discovered Malt-O-Meal® bagged cereals (like my family's new favorites- Cinnamon Toasters, S'Mores, & Golden Puffs) at my local Food Lion, and the wheels began to turn. Crunchy, delicious cereals make the perfect base for homemade trail mixes. And with 34 family favorite flavors available to choose from, just think of all the trail mix possibilities, folks! ;)

Since fall is quickly approaching and I have fall flavors on the brain, I snagged a bag of the Malt-O-Meal Cinnamon Toasters. I mean, what are some of our favorite flavors of fall without the cinnamon? I decided to toss the Cinnamon Toasters with crunchy walnuts, dried apples, and sweet white chocolate chips to make this easy and delicious trail mix inspired by one of my family's favorite fall desserts- apple pie...

Not only do I love Malt-O-Meal bagged cereals because they are a great value and offer a wide selection of flavor choices, but I also love that they come in resealable bags. Resealable bags = no more stale cereal! I always cringe when I have to throw out a box of stale cereal. Who is with me on that one?
