As I always do, I asked my readers to take part, maybe tell me what they think about my recipes and give me some tips, as well. What do they think of this one? Do they like it, did they make someone important to them happy with it? Did it help them save some time? Simply, what do our readers say about this recipe? Here it comes:
“This is an amazing snack/lunch. It’s like “s’mores in a jar”! My kids love it! It’s also good to take on the go – great to take in school lunches or to school. They can even eat it without me mixing in the nuts when they are left alone. I like having things pre-measured when I make food for them, so I can make one recipe for several people. This recipe also keeps well, so I often make this when we are at home or when I’m not around.”
“I love this recipe, my kids do too! The texture is spot-on and the flavors blend together nicely.”
“I sincerely hope this tastes exactly like maple glazed nuts I used to love as a kid.
If so, I will be relieved of the guilt of eating something healthy.”
“I had to make this for my son who is on a strict diet. He gobbled it up and loved it!”
“I am somewhat picky about the food I eat, and I enjoyed this trail mix immensely. It was very filling and satisfying for me, which is saying something due to my appetite!”
“Lovely taste, not overly sweet thanks to maple syrup. Very tasty! Kids (even picky ones) ate it up too.”
And a little note before I will finally say goodbye to y’all: You’re 1 000, no 1 000 000, no 1 000 000 000 times more awesome and nice and excellent than every recipe here. Love you, love you all!
