Le mélange du randonneur maison, 3 versions!

The famous hiker's blend, the perfect accompaniment for mountain or forest hikes.

Autumn has arrived, it's time to take the time to walk in the forest, get some fresh air, breathe, and admire the changing colors. It will also follow you on your hikes or ski descents in winter.

The hiker's mix is ​​one of the snacks that lasts over time. Why? On the one hand, because it is so nutritious! THE nuts or seeds provide you with the good fats and proteins, and the dried fruits the carbohydrates necessary for the effort. Also, it can be customized to your liking, it's so easy to make!

Well, there are a lot of ready-made mixes on the shelves, but they are often made from dried fruit to which sulphites are added to retain their color and prolong their shelf life, or they will have other additives added, often not necessary. .

Organic nuts and fruits should therefore be preferred. If the raw nuts are too difficult for you to digest, you can toast them a little, with a light touch of olive oil or maple syrup. What could be more pleasant than to make it to our liking! Here are some of them, which you can modify as you wish.
