Transcend good ol' raisins and peanuts. And if you want to try a trail less traveled, here's a handy formula: 2 cups nuts, 1 cup crunch (seeds or grains or cereal), 1 cup dried fruit, 1 cup surprise, such as cacao nibs, candied ginger, or edible gold flakes.
sprouted almonds (although non-sprouted are fine)
crunchy roasted chickpeas
