Patriotic Snack Mix

on July 1, 2016

My husband likes to have snacks at work and I said I’d throw something together. Why not make it seasonal and use red, white, and blue in it to make it patriotic at the same time? He’s taking this batch to work, but this is also a great Patriotic Snack Mix for your 4th of July weekend. It’s chock full of sweet treats and nuts to give you enough energy to get your family through all the swimming and lake events, all of those lawn games of corn hole or Kubb, and you could even take some along for a snack when watching fireworks.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Patriotic Snack Mix

1/2 box of Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats

1 package of dried cherries

1 cup coconut (just for fun!)

1 bag of M & Ms

3 cups whole almonds

3 cups walnut halves

3 cups pecan halves

Mix gently.


The sweets – Frosted Mini Wheats, M & Ms, Dried Cherries, and Coconut. The roasted nuts – almonds, walnuts, and pecans. I roasted some raw nuts, but if you wanted to you could use salted nuts. Add what you like and make up your own mix!


So festive – you could use any color of M & Ms and make it appropriate for any holiday or occasion.


This little snack mix is absolutely delicious, and there are no added oil, spices, or baking needed.


Make up a batch of this snack mix to take along for the weekend. It will keep you energized for your 4th of July festivities. Stay safe this weekend and enjoy your family and friends!
