Pumpkin Pie Spice Trail Mix

It’s here.  Pumpkin season is upon us!  I’ll admit I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin, but I am so ready for everything it symbolizes.  The cooler weather, the shorter days, the holiday season!  I won’t be going out for a Pumpkin Spice Latte any time soon, but I am easing my way in with this Pumpkin Pie Spice Trail Mix.

It’s also happens to be National Trail Mix Day.  This Pumpkin Pie Spice Trail Mix is perfect to eat by the handful, or would be yummy mixed in with your morning oatmeal!

Do you know what a pepita is?  I didn’t until two days ago, but isn’t it so fun to say?  Pepita.  Pepitas are the green kernels from pumpkin seeds.  Pepitas are a source of zinc and protein and they also provide iron, vitamin E, magnesium, potassium, some B-complex vitamins and dietary fiber.  Perfect to add in to your trail mix!

I love the color and crunch of this trail mix.  I opted not to include any fruit into mine, but raisins or crystallized ginger pieces would be a yummy addition.  This batch makes enough to fill a mason jar, with just a healthy smidge leftover to sample.  Pair it with my Happy Fall tags and you have an easy Fall gift!

I usually am not into all the ways pumpkin is used in the Fall, but this looks and sounds really good! I am getting adventurous so I will try this along with the pumpkin cereal and pumpkin cornbread mix I bought today at Trader Joes!

I'm with you! I"m not sure if I'm really a fan of pumpkin, but I like this pumpkin season, especially the cooler weather! I'm also liking how your recipe makes enough for a mason jar and a sample. :) I hope you can stop on by and share this or any other recipe with us on Five Friday Finds!
