Recovery Day – Homemade Trail Mix

Trial mix is a hearty, crunchy, and savory snack that all age groups can enjoy. Trial mix can be made ahead of time, stored for weeks to months, and is easily customizable. However, trial mix is somewhat expensive to buy, so we decided to make our own healthy and affordable version.

Below we have the ingredients for this tasty snack that is low in sugar so you’ll be making batches of this weekly with ease. Enjoy on the road or at home!

Homemade Trail Mix | Yields 6-8

1 c banana chips, unsweetened
½ c dried cherries or cranberries 
½ c whole almonds
½ c pecans 
½ c cashews
½ c pumpkin or sunflower seeds, shelled
½ c peanuts
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
½ c dark chocolate (optional) 
1/2 c coconut flakes, unsweetened (optional)

  1. Combine all ingredients into a large bowl and mix well.
  2. Once combined, store in bags or mason jars.
  3. Keep in a relatively cool area for up to one month. Enjoy!
