I have received a few emails about the Fruit and Nut Clusters recipe– how easy and delicious it is. Yea! I will have to update everyone on the latest versions I have been trying–and I will admit that I’ve been adding some indulgent dark chocolate into the mix. This is now what my hubby calls, “Mountain Food”, and we don’t leave the house without it (the “Mountain” part comes from the fact that we must have it in our pockets when we head out to the mountain–it is sustaining and delicious, a perfect fuel for mountain adventures).
So just follow the Fruit and Nut Clusters recipe, but feel free to try different type of dried fruits and goodies in there. My husband is always asking, “when are you making Mountain Food again?” I’ve made it with dried goji berries, dried organic strawberries, and even crystallized ginger. My next time? Dried cherries and chocolate chips! Please comment on what your favorite version of Mountain Food/Fruit and Nut Clusters is…it is always fun to experiment with new ideas!
I might just have home-made almond butter cups in the other pocket!
