Healthy Trail Mix

One of my favorite grab n’ go snacks is trail mix.  It’s a great way to sneak in some healthy fats and protein when you are in a bit of a rush.  I used to buy the prepackaged trail mix at places like Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, but when I noticed that my wallet was taking a hit, I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own healthy trail mix.

Healthy Trail MixWhen I put together a healthy trail mix I usually include a few varieties of nuts, some seeds, dried fruit and a few chocolate chips for some sweetness.  The Englishman loves taking trail mix to work so I made an extra large batch for him to enjoy throughout the week.

This may not be the most complicated recipe around, but it sure is delicious.

Healthy Trail Mix (makes 1 large serving)


1/3 cup unsalted almonds

1/3 cup unsalted cashew pieces

1/3 cup pecan halves

1/3 cup unsalted pepitas

1/3 cup golden raisins

1/3 cup white chocolate chips (dark chocolate chips are good too)


Pour all your trail mix ingredients into a bowl.  Enjoy by the handful.

Healthy Trail Mix HandfulFor the Englishman’s batch I also added some caramel corn to the top for added crunch and texture.

Healthy Trail Mix Caramel CornI unfortunately cannot have caramel corn, but the Englishman said it was a delicious addition.  So apparently popcorn in trail mix is a good thing.

What’s your favorite trail mix combo?
