Healthy Superfood Trail Mix Recipe With Raw Chocolate, Pumpkin Seeds, and Berries


Superfood Trail Mix Recipe

You're going to want to keep a batch of this trail mix recipe at work for an afternoon treat. This is also a great gift idea for that hard-to-buy-for person. A teacher perhaps?

Putting a jar of this trail mix recipe together wouldn’t be inexpensive, and you have the flexibility of adding a variety of ingredients you like. Add nuts or leave them out for school-safe snacking.

Makes 2 3/4 cups 

Ingredients

1 cup pumpkin seeds (toast your own with a pinch of salt) or use a combination of your favorite nuts and/or seeds
Pinch sea salt
1 cup flaked toasted coconut-use the large flakes (buy toasted or make your own)
1/2 cup unsulphured goji berries, cranberries, golden berries, mulberries or a combination
1/8 - 1/4 cup chunks of raw chocolate or good quality chocolate chips
Optional: add some homemade granola clusters and/or a pinch of cinnamon

Directions

Preheat oven to 325º F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place seeds (or nuts of choice) on the sheet with a pinch of salt and toast for 6 to 7 minutes or until the pumpkin seeds begin to pop – do this only if you are using raw pumpkin seeds. Remove from oven and place in a large bowl to cool. Using the same baking sheet, toast coconut for approximately 3 to 4 minutes (or use already toasted). Add to seed mixture and then stir in dried berries of choice and any optional ingredients. Add pieces of raw chocolate or chocolate chips, when the mixture has completely cooled.
