Pumpkin Pie Spice Trail Mix

Pumpkin-Pie-Spice-Trail-Mix-SnackI love all things related to fall; pumpkins, costumes, holiday meals, decor, crafts, but my absolute favorite thing is anything pumpkin spice! Let’s face it, it’s now in pretty much everything, right?

Lately, I’ve been needing a bit more of an energy boosting snack more so during this pregnancy to help me keep up with our very active 4-year-old. Since the weather in Southern California has finally started to cool down, I was craving something pumpkin-ish so I made this pumpkin pie spice trail mix. All it takes is 10 minutes and 6 ingredients. Yes, it has more sugar than I need (Reese’s Pieces are my fav!), but sometimes it’s just about portion control and balancing meals. Plus, I promise I made up for it during dinner with a lean protein and veggie meal.

    I love this! We always need snacks for football season & I especially love taking trail mix with me when I’m hiking. I never thought of making it with Pumpkin Pie flavor. Shared. Love, Lisa

If you haven't had this protein-rich ice cream from @halotopcreamery you're missing out! This stuff is so so good and only 250-350 calories per pint. .
Currently loving their salted caramel, black cherry, oatmeal cookie, cookies n cream and chocolate mocha chip. Oh and s'mores...ok, seriously though, way too many to pick just one. 😋What's your fav???

  • As a kid growing up in Southern CA, I vividly remember all our yearly summer trips to Disneyland. But one memory that really stands out from the rest was watching the Electrical Parade on Main Street. And now that @disneyland brought it back, it's been unreal watching it with my two littles. I can't even tell you how magical🌈 but I can show ya. Check out our stories. 🤗 We keep replaying it over here. 🤣
