How To Build a Healthy Trail Mix

Ingredients
For the customizable version:

1 1/2 cups raw nuts i.e. almonds, pecans, cashews, peanuts etc..

1 cup raw seeds i.e. sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds etc…

1 cup unsweetened, unsulphured dried fruit

Fun stuff (amounts vary) i.e. 1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate, 1 cup popped popcorn, 1 cup pretzels etc..

Spice i.e. 1/4 tsp sea salt, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, pinch of nutmeg (optional)

My Go-To Trail Mix Recipe:

3/4 cup raw pecans (I toast mine in the oven for 10 mins at 350 degrees F)

3/4 cup raw cashews (I toast mine in the oven for 10 mins at 350 degrees F)

1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds

1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup unsweetened, unsulfured cherries

1/2 cup unsweetened, unsulfured raisins

1/2 cup chopped 82% dark chocolate

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

pinch of nutmeg

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.

Store in a ziploc bag or mason jar.

Will keep for up to 1 month.

Notes

Opcional: If you really need the extra sweetness, you can coat the mix with 2 T maple syrup, spread it out on a baking sheet and allow it to dry before bagging.
