What’s In A Trail Mix?
A trail mix is typically a mixture of nuts, dried fruit and sometimes something a little sweet like chocolate chips, or candy pieces. Trail mixes will vary a lot when it comes to what mixture is in each one. What you want in your trail mix is really up to your personal preferences.
If you want it to be a filling healthy snack that will get you through part of a day, and curb some of your cravings, you’re going to want it to be more nut and fat focused. Nuts are full of key proteins, healthy fats, and antioxidants that make for a great fuel source for your mid-day slump.
Is Trail Mix Good For You?
Trail mix can definitely be good for you and can assist in part of having a healthy, well-balanced diet. With that being said, it’s important to look into the trail mixes you eat and pay attention to what’s in them. A lot of store-bought trail mixes can be packed full of added sugar, preservatives, and a bunch of other things that make them less of a healthy snack, and more like a dessert.
That’s why we love making our own keto trail mixes. This way we know that we’re getting a healthy trail mix that’s not packed full of more candy than nuts.
How To Make Keto Trail Mix
Making your own trail mix is super simple. You don’t have to be a master in the kitchen to make this. All you need is about 20 minutes of spare time and you’ll be good to go.
First, preheat the oven to 325F. Next line a large baking tray with parchment paper and spray the top of the parchment with coconut oil spray. Then toss together the almonds, pecans, coconut flakes, vanilla, stevia, and salt in a large bowl. After that, spread them out on the prepared baking sheet and bake until golden. Finally let them cool completely and then stir in the chocolate chips.
Can I Make This Trail Mix With Different Nuts?
You can really make this recipe your own in any way you like. Switch up the nuts by replacing the almonds and pecans with peanuts, hazelnuts, pine nuts, walnuts, or whatever other nuts you can think of.
Play around with different combos and see which one suits your personal preferences. There’s really no wrong way to put together a trail mix, so feel free to have some fun with it.
Just be sure any changes you make are still low carb if you want to keep this a keto recipe. We don’t suggest adding dried fruit if you want to keep the recipe low carb. Try to stick to nuts, and stevia sweetened chocolate if possible.
How Long Does Homemade Trail Mix Keep?
Our trail mix keeps very well when stored correctly. As long as the mix is stored in an airtight container at room temperature, it will keep for up to 2 weeks. Just be sure to store your keto trail mix in a place that’s not overly hot, or the chocolate chips will begin to melt.
If you want to make a box of this keto trail mix recipe in bulk, feel free to freeze some for later. Just place the mix in a ziptop bag, or airtight container, and store in the freezer for up to 4 months.
