Trail mix is the perfect on-the-go snack. It’s great for road trips, hiking, camping, pool days, and as an afternoon pick-me-up at home.
Most store-bought trail mix is loaded with sugar and industrial seed oils. Both contribute to inflammation. Since inflammation is the root of so many diseases, we want to avoid these ingredients as much as possible.
Thankfully, homemade trail mix is so easy to make — it’s ready to eat in no time!
As you probably know, trail mix is simply a combination of nuts and dried fruit, with some optional add-ins. This vegan, Paleo, and Real Food Toasted Coconut Trail Mix recipe has nuts and seeds as the base and merges the tartness of goji berries with the sweetness of chocolate and raisins.
Then, toasted coconut chips elevate this trail mix to gourmet status!
Real Food Toasted Coconut Trail Mix
Even though I’m giving you a recipe below, feel free to adjust according to your taste. If you’re not a fan of sweet (or are trying to cut back on sugar) leave out the raisins and chocolate chips. If there’s a nut you don’t care for, swap it for a different variety.
This Real Food Toasted Coconut Trail Mix is superior to most available in stores because it’s made with Wildly Organic’s soaked and dehydrated nuts.
Soaked nuts are much more nutritious than their unsoaked counterparts. You can soak and dry them yourself, but Wildly Organic makes it so easy by doing it for us! Using these soaked and dehydrated nuts and seeds saves time and also means you get all the nutrition available when you eat this trail mix.
I prefer a natural (unroasted) trail mix, and have written the recipe as such, but if you’d like to add some roasted goodness, roast the almonds (and possibly cashews) for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees F.
If you choose to roast the nuts, I recommend buying the unsoaked, raw variety (which Wildly Organic also carries). You might also enjoy tossing the roasted nuts in a pinch of Himalayan Pink Salt while warm to add some extra saltiness to your trail mix.
