This coconut trail mix is high in fat, has few ingredients and is a super satisfying snack for on the go!
I don’t know about you, but I have to be careful when I snack on nuts. The crunchy, salty, satisfying way about them makes it hard to stop. I remember back in the day, I could easily go through a tub of trail mix from Costco in a week or less. I’m sure the M&M’s inside didn’t help.
These days I take a much healthier approach to my consumption of nuts and trail mix and try really hard to find ones that have really simple ingredients and that can fit in with my real food based, low carb lifestyle. I started making this coconut trail mix for my Whole30 clients as a way to help them add healthy snacks in their program and it’s definitely become a favorite.
This coconut trail mix uses few ingredients and has a light coconut flavor without any sugar or fruit. Feel free to play around with the combination of nuts and add-ins as you please. This can be made in large batches and is perfect to bring along for healthy travel or to have as fuel for intense physical activity. Also can be eaten just because it’s delicious!
