Toasted Trail Mix

Toasted Trail Mix

  • 2 cups raw, unsalted nuts
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup natural, unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup raisins or other dried fruit
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips, optional

Baker's Note: If I had more nuts, seeds, or dried fruit on hand besides almonds, pecans and raisins, I would have used those, too.  Variety is the beauty of trail mix - just use what you like and make it yours.

Place the nuts on a baking sheet in a single layer and drizzle with the coconut oil.  Toast in a 300 degree oven for 5-7 minutes until hot and fragrant.

In a bowl, combine the toasted nuts and coconut oil, coconut and raisins.  Add the salt and spices and toss until well coated.  This trail mix is fantastic served warm, but wait until the mix cools if adding the chocolate chips.

Yields 3 1/4 cups
