Ingredients

  • 2 cups mixed nuts
  • 1 cup mixed seeds sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds and sesame seeds
  • 1 cup dry fruits cranberries, raisins and dried mango
  • 2 tbsp. dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  • I used a combination of raw almonds and cashews. You could roast them if you so like.
  • I did not toast the seeds, but again feel free to lightly toast them.
  • Chop any large ingredients into smaller pieces like I did for mango pieces that added a nice sweet-sour touch to the mix. Cranberries and raisins naturally sweeten the trail mix. You could use dates as well.
  • I did not use chocolate chips this time, but they are a good indulgence to add.
  • Mix everything together. I did not add any added sugar or salt.
  • Have a large handful and enjoy your homemade delicious trail mix.

Notes

  1. Store in an airtight jar so that they stay fresh.
  2. Chop the raisins or cranberries so that they stick to the seeds better.
  3. You can use any combination of nuts and seeds, just keep the proportion of nuts, seeds and dried fruits and berries 2:1:1.
  4. You can skip chocolate chips but they do add to the taste.
