We have a few little trips planned this summer and I’m excited for some road trips and family visits! Now that I’m more on the go these days, I’ve started making more snacks that are easy to transport.

The Best Road Trip Snacks

The best snacks need to be healthy, portable, easy to eat, and shelf-stable. All of these treats can be eaten with one hand and don’t require any refrigeration or special storage. Plus, you can make these in advance so you’re ready to head out the door!

I ordered all of the ingredients for these snacks from iHerb. iHerb carries over 30,000 natural products and they ship to over 180 countries. They even offer customer service 7 days a week and in 10 languages!! Everything is shipped from climate-controlled distribution centers to ensure the quality of their products and groceries.

Their prices are great and I love being able to skip a trip to the grocery store. iHerb is also perfect for items that might be hard to find if you don’t live near a specialty grocery store. They have tons of gluten-free, paleo, and vegan products. So grab your ingredients and let’s make some snacks!

Apple Pie Bites

These tasty bites are made with dates, dried apples, cashews, and almonds for a simple snack that is easy to take on the go! You can press them into bars or shape them into balls and pack a few when you’re headed out the door. These bites are naturally sweet, without any added sugar.

Tropical Trail Mix

Skip the store-bought trail mix (which is often just peanuts and candy) and make this tropical trail mix at home! It has dried pineapple, dried bananas, coconut, cashews, and almonds for a sweet and salty combination that is hard to resist! I packed some of this trail mix for a day trip with my girlfriends and it was a hit.
