A delicious s’mores trail mix that is nut free and perfect for snack time, road trips, and more! Budget friendly and easy for gluten free, vegan, and allergy friendly needs.
This s’mores trail mix is a perfect after school snack! It’s so simple to make and meets the requirements for a nut-free school.
Sweet and fluffy marshmallows combine with crunchy pretzels, healthy pumpkin seeds, tiny graham crackers, and of course, chocolate chips! But you can fully customize this recipe for your unique allergy and dietary needs.
This trail mix is perfect as it’s full of protein, healthy fats, and dried fruits. It’s a great snack for those with peanut allergies because you can make it at home and know all the ingredients are safe.
S’mores trail mix ingredients
These ingredients are all inspired by the classic s’mores, but done in a trail mix twist! All of these ingredients are easily found at your local grocery store - nothing weird or esoteric here! Here is what you’ll need:
- Pumpkin Seeds - Filled with healthy protein and fats, they also have antioxidants.
- Dried Fruits - You can use any kind you like. For these photos I used raisins but things like dried blueberries or cranberries would also be yummy!
- Mini Pretzels - A touch of salty to compliment the sweet! Snyder’s of Hanover makes these cute mini pretzels. They also make gluten free variety if you need that! Most of their pretzels are dairy and egg free.
- Graham crackers - I used these Annie’s Bunny cookies, but Teddy Grahams or other small cookies also work.
- Chocolate Chips - You can’t have a trail mix without chocolate chips! Plain chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, or even tiny m&m’s would work perfect.
- Marshmallows - The ingredient that makes this trail mix so special! I used Dandie’s marshmallows which are vegan and dye free.
If you are gluten free, use a gluten free pretzel and graham cracker. Make sure the seeds you use are made in a gluten free facility.
If you are avoiding dairy and eggs, most pretzels are safe to use, but always read the ingredient label to make sure! You will want to make sure the chocolate chips are dairy free. I love to use Enjoy Life chocolate chips!

How to store
Trail mix is a delicious snack that keeps for a long time!
Countertop: Store in an airtight container on the countertop for up to 2 months. Mason jars or other glass or plastic containers are a great option. You can also use portion control bags to have ready made snacks to go anytime!
Fridge + Freezer: I don’t recommend storing this trail mix in the fridge or freezer. It keeps just fine at room temperature.
