Back to school is almost here! Make these fun trail mix muffins for a boost in lunchboxes, or make them for yourself! Fluffy muffins with fruit and nuts – irresistible!
I participated in Mom Blog Tour Sweets & Snacks Expo (#MomBlogTourFF) on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers. I received Power Up products to facilitate my post, but my opinion and creative content are my own.

My oldest son, H, started Kindergarten last week (so early!) and many of the schools in the area are this week, or next. I figured that you all might appreciate a lunch box idea I had, using healthy trail mix, blended into muffins. Excellent for a mid morning or afternoon snack!
My kids LOVE muffins – anything in the oven that comes out in a muffin pan, they’re all over. The smell of these is amazing. Although I use trail mix with dried fruit, they get a little reconstituted, so you have delicious tropical fruit flavors all through the muffin. And some nuts, too!Love these? Feel free to share!!

I have partnered with PowerUp to bring you this recipe today, and I couldn’t more excited to share this with you!
Gluten free and with so many different flavor blends, you could find one for every member of the family, or day of the week!
I used the Nature’s Mix blend for these muffins. Raisins,Cranberries, Papaya and Pineapple are SO good, and then they added in cashews, almonds and peanuts!
Here’s what went into my muffins:
Look at all this goodness!!
