I love a good trail mix. They are perfect for those hunger pangs at 4 pm or to satisfy your on-the-go cravings. My homemade trail mix recipe has super healthy ingredients. So you can munch a handful without guilt. Your kids will love it too. It has no artificial sweeteners. The trail mix ingredients have a mix of nuts, berries and seeds and is bursting with nutrition. You can make this healthy trail mix and store in an airtight jar for 2 weeks though it won’t last that long, I assure you.

Here is my recipe of a super easy homemade trail mix:

Prep Time 10 minutes Total Time 10 minutes Servings20Calories 150 kcal Author Rachna Parmar

Ingredients

  • 2 cups mixed nuts
  • 1 cup mixed seeds sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds and sesame seeds
  • 1 cup dry fruits cranberries, raisins and dried mango
  • 2 tbsp. dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. I used a combination of raw almonds and cashews. You could roast them if you so like.
  2. I did not toast the seeds, but again feel free to lightly toast them.
  3. Chop any large ingredients into smaller pieces like I did for mango pieces that added a nice sweet-sour touch to the mix. Cranberries and raisins naturally sweeten the trail mix. You could use dates as well.
  4. I did not use chocolate chips this time, but they are a good indulgence to add.
  5. Mix everything together. I did not add any added sugar or salt.
  6. Have a large handful and enjoy your homemade delicious trail mix.

Recipe Notes

  1. Store in an airtight jar so that they stay fresh.
  2. Chop the raisins or cranberries so that they stick to the seeds better.
  3. You can use any combination of nuts and seeds, just keep the proportion of nuts, seeds and dried fruits and berries 2:1:1.
  4. You can skip chocolate chips but they do add to the taste.
  5. This is vegan and added sugar free

Rachna, this is one recipe I am going to try ASAP! Heading to the store tomorrow. Will pick up all the ingredients. Something I can munch on, guilt free! What’s not to love. Also, question, can I have this along with oats/cornflakes and cold milk as a cereal?

You can have a handful along with your breakfast. Sure, it is a power packed way of adding more nutrition to plain cornflakes or oats.

While I have never had it alone, I do occasionally add it in oats
