Jeannie's DIY Trail Mix

Most pre-packaged trail mixes are loaded with sugar & poor quality ingredients and cost a small fortune. So instead of dropping $7 or $8 on a teensy bag of trail mix that always has that one ingredient you end up picking out, head to the bulk section and create your own custom mix. Here are a couple of my favorites:

Ingredients:

2 cups raw organic pumpkin seeds
1 cup raw organic walnut halves and pieces
½ cup unsweetened dried tart cherries
¾ cup unsweetened coconut flakes or chips

Or for a tropical version:

2 cups raw organic pumpkin seeds
1 cup roasted & salted macadamia nuts, very roughly chopped
½ cup unsweetened banana chips
¾ cup unsweetened coconut flakes or chips

Use these basic recipes to make your own with your favorite ingredients. Brazil nuts, almonds, and organic dark chocolate chips also make great additions.

Directions:

  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Store in a sealed glass container or measure out ½ cup servings into resealable bags to grab and go.

Makes 8 - ½ cup servings.
