How To Make the Ultimate Paleo Trail Mix:
You Will Need:
- raw cashews
- raw walnuts
- raw pecans
- raw pumpkin seeds
- dairy free chocolate chips
- good quality salt
A paleo trail mix should be balanced with nuts, seeds, dried fruit and a little something special like dark chocolate chips or cacao nibs and a pinch of salt to balance out the flavor.
This recipe is super easy. All you do is add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir with a spatula or your hands. Then pour into a sealed container and store in your cupboard if you will use up within a month or fridge for longer storage.
Feel free to add a blend of your favorite nuts or simply use what you have available in your cupboard. You can swap out cashews for macadamia nuts, cranberries for the raisins and cacao nibs for the dark chocolate chips. The possibilities are endless.
My daughter and husband are big fans of snacking and are my inspiration behind this Paleo Trial Mix. I do find her picking out the dark chocolate chips first which is what I expect from a child her age! We will be packing this in her lunch box and I be will packing myself a mini snack ziplock bag of this Paleo Trail Mix in my purse. I have not found a trail mix that has dairy free dark chocolate chips so I thought this would be a special addition for anyone who is vegan or dairy free. I am using dairy free dark chocolate chips. They have been my go-to dairy free chocolate chips for the last few years. They have a rich, delicious flavor and it is hard to tell they are actually dairy free. You will find they are the perfect addition to this Paleo Trail Mix!
