Loaded Mountain Trail Mix
Updated: Jan 23
I make this trail mix with hunting season in mind. It's a great trail mix for those of us who hike out in the woods all day hunting and need that extra-nutritious energy boost. It's loaded with protein and healthy carbs and easy to make. This trail mix can also be made for backpacking, hiking, and camping, or just for an on-the-go snack or packed lunches. I also make it for just for myself to enjoy. We live 40 miles from town, and there are many times I need a quick pick me up in between meals, something that I can reach for when I'm on the road.
Ingredients and Directions:
2 Cups of each: (I use unsweetened and unsalted ingredients)
Almonds, Pecans, Raw Sunflower Seeds, Walnuts, Coconut Flakes, Chopped Dates, Unsweetened Banana Chips, and Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks.
Mix together in a very large bowl. Store in an airtight jar. Fill up ziploc bags when on the go. Enjoy a healthy snack!
I buy my ingredients at my local health food store, or you can buy them here:
