Energy Boosting Trail Mix with Toasted Coconut and Dark Chocolate
Recipe type: Snack
Serves: about 20
 
This Energy Boosting Trail Mix with Toasted Coconut and Dark Chocolate is a healthy mix of nuts and seeds, plus dried cherries and dark chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth. It's the perfect snack for the back-to-school rush or to pack in your work bag or purse when you're on the go!
Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup raw walnuts
  • 1 cup cashews (I used roasted and lightly salted)
  • ½ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup dried cherries (or cranberries)
  • ¾ cup dark chocolate chips
Directions
  1. Place coconut flakes in a small skillet on the stove. Toast over medium-low heat, until lightly golden and fragrant, gently stirring often. This should take only 2 or 3 minutes; watch the coconut carefully so it doesn't burn. Let cool before mixing with other trail mix ingredients.
  2. Place toasted coconut and all remaining ingredients in a large bowl or storage container; stir to mix. Store trail mix in an airtight container at room temperature, or divide into individual portions in zip-top baggies. I find that a heaping ¼ cup is the perfect serving size. Enjoy!
