Whole Grain Fig and Coconut Trail Mix Recipe

Trail mix makes a quick and healthy snack, but many packaged varieties are loaded with excess sugar and sodium. This version uses unsalted nuts, unsweetened dried fruit, whole grain cereal, and a few dark chocolate chips for a satisfying snack that is easy to pack for busy afternoons or weekend hikes.
