This is a super easy, fast, homemade Paleo trail mix recipe that's perfect to eat on the go. It works great as a quick breakfast or snack.
I kind of stumbled on it by accident just needing a quick snack and wanting something to go with the freeze-dried fruit I had bought. It's so good with a perfect balance of ingredients and there are so many variations you can do with it.
I like using the freeze-dried fruit (as opposed to regular dried fruit) because the flavors of the fruit and nuts don't seep into each other as easily. I get bummed out when all the fruit in a trail mix tastes like a peanut and all the nuts taste like raisins!
Here's what's in this trail mix:
- Freeze Dried Strawberries and Bananas (or use any freeze dried fruit)- I got these at Kroger in the bulk/healthy foods aisle. The packaging looks like this:
If you don't have a Kroger, you can likely find something similar at your grocery store. You can also get them from Amazon here. They actually has a ton of different varieties to choose from on the site.
- Coconut Chips or unsweetened coconut flakes. I used Dang Coconut Chips because they just have a little bit of sea salt and are really tasty even by themselves but regular large coconut flakes work well too.
- Almonds (whole, raw)- A super versatile Paleo staple.
- Cashews (whole, raw)- One of my favorite nuts- they just add a creamy comforting taste to anything.
- Pistachios (shelled)- I like using these because they're a little bit unique as far as trail mix goes. I used Wonderful Pistachios that I picked up at Sam's Club and they're lightly salted. You can do salted or unsalted.
