Reviews for Fruit 'n' Nut Trail Mix
"easy and excellent. Made it for a bar-b-que tonight and everyone loved it. I did not use the oil with the oats. I had extra butter from the sunflower seeds and used that. Excellent!!!"
"First time making it and it turned out great. I did double the honey mixture and added a few different ingredients.Very easy and yummy"
