As with any trail mix recipe, adding seeds will add a nice texture and flavor. Try adding sunflower seeds to your mix.
Almonds are a healthy snack and do not have a strong flavor. They can also be added to your trail mix recipe.
Chex cereal and other dried fruit options are also good substitutes.
For sweetness, try adding butterscotch chips to your mix.
