The Good Wife Trial Mix

I was craving some trial mix the other day and since I am rather picky about what type of nuts and fruit I like, I decided to make my own. My favorite type of nut is walnut, which is not very common in trial mix. But walnuts and other nuts are high in the good kind of fat and all the pregnancy books I am reading say it is really good for a baby's growing brain.

2/3 cup honey roasted peanuts
2/3 cup dried fruit, I used Tropical Trio by Sunmaid
1/2 cup walnut halves
1/2 cup pecans halves
1/2 cup dried bananas (optional)
1/2 cup chocolate covered soy nuts (optional
1 package plain M&Ms (optional)

~Combine all in a medium bowl. Stir to combine.

~Grab a handful and enjoy.
