I broke up with my long-lasting love affair with trail mix after years of purchasing mediocre versions at airports and sporting events. At some point, I got tired of rooting through the bag to pull out the “good stuff”, leaving only the pieces I don’t like behind.

I finally tried trail mix again with this healthy homemade recipe for my recent backpacking trip on Santa Catalina Island. Let me tell you – I am SO glad I gave it another try!Healthy Trail Mix PIN

This healthy trail mix is:

  • sweet
  • salty
  • crunchy
  • chocolatey
  • well-balanced
  • delicious!

This recipe is a healthy and affordable replacement for snack bars and is also gluten free, dairy free, and vegan. Sometimes I like to add a little more chocolate or cranberries, but starting with this combination as the base works great every time. I bring this with me to work, keep a bag in my purse, have a stash in my car, and eat it at home. I am addicted!Healthy trail mix 2

My sister-in-law is also a fan of making this healthy trail mix with my nephews – it’s a perfect fun and foolproof recipe to make with kids of all ages.

Here’s how you can make this Healthy Trail Mix in 5 minutes or less:

    Perfect proportions, and I had everything I needed at home! Always make little bags with what I have around, but I like the idea of making a larger batch that will last a few days. Thank you!!
