If you are looking for a healthy snack then this easy trail mix recipe is perfect.
Since we have been homeschooling, the kids are making regular trips to the fridge during “break time”. I was looking for some healthy snack ideas to keep them going. As we are at home, this is the perfect excuse to have something with nuts.
Rummaging I found a whole selection of half-eaten nut, seed and dry fruit packets. So I decided to combine them into a tasty trail mix.
The ingredients below are what I had in my kitchen. Do not feel bound by them and throw in whatever you find in your cupboards. I like adding coconut shavings but these are completely optional.
Once made, this trail mix will keep for weeks in an airtight jar or container. It is bursting with healthy fats, proteins, fibre, vitamins and minerals.
If you are looking for additional snack inspiration, why not try these Mango Cashew & Ginger Energy Balls? Fruity with a slight kick of fresh ginger, they are perfect when you are in need of a boost. They can double as breakfast when you are really in a rush or as post-workout fuel.
