Copycat Monster Trail Mix - Gluten Free

I've loved the Monster Trail Mix at Target as long as I can remember! It's the perfect mix of all the things I love - salty, sweet and crunchy! Every time I stop at Target - I end up throwing a bag in my car - but man that gets expensive! 
I'm also packing my lunch for work again - and this is a great snack to have in my lunch bag! So I decided to make my own Copycat Monster Trail Mix! 

How to make Monster Trail Mix 

Who am I kidding? It's easy peasy! But you have to have the ratio down just right! Get your ingredients together and one batch of ingredients can make 8+ cups of Monster Trail Mix! 

Gather up peanuts, raisins, M&Ms, chocolate chips and (my favorite) peanut butter chips. 

When I make Monster Trail Mix - I have to portion it out into 1/2 cup zipper bags as soon as I make it. If I don't - I'd be eating the whole bowl in a day! This helps me so I can take it for lunch. I made a 4 cup batch for this recipe and that's 8-10 lunch snack packs! 

Is Monster Trail Mix gluten-free? 

Yes! I checked each of the ingredients and everything is Gluten-Free. 

Enjoy this Copycat Monster Trail Mix for a snack or pack in the kids lunches. You'll definitely enjoy it! Salty, sweet and crunchy - what more could you want?
