Ultimate Trail Mix

Trail mix has become a staple snack at our house.  I love it as a pre-run snack and the boys love it when they need a little afternoon snack as well. We love taking it along on road trips and camping trips.  I have played with many combinations but this combination is our favorite.  I have to admit that sometimes my husband even calls it the devil’s mix because it is so tempting that he can’t resist it even when he isn’t hungry.  🙂

For any of the nuts and seeds in this recipe, I use only raw and unsalted.  That is the healthiest form to eat them in.  It would be better if I had soaked them but I don’t always have time to do that.  Soaked almonds that are dehydrated are delicious, by the way.  So, when I take the time to do that, it makes this mix even better.


Ultimate Trail Mix

2 c. goji berries
2 c. mulberries
1 c. craisins (better if you can find ones that are juice sweetened as opposed to sugar sweetened – I can find that at our local co-op)
3 c. almonds (raw, unsalted, and soaked is best)
1 c. pumpkin seeds (raw, unsalted)
1 c. sunflower seeds (raw, unsalted)
2 c. cashews (raw – I have only seen these at Trader Joe’s or the co-op)
3/4 – 1 c. dark chocolate chunks (I use a 80% cacao chocolate bar and hit it with a rolling pin while it is in it’s wrapper until it is broken into bite sized chunks. You could also use chocolate chips – we prefer Enjoy Life brand).

Mix all ingredients together. Best if stored in the refrigerator.
