It's Road Trip season and one of my favorite grab-and-go options is trail mix. Sadly, most of the options available in the snack aisle contain too many peanuts, icky cooking oils, and hidden sugars. And, if you are sticking to a paleo-focused lifestyle, it's almost impossible to find a paleo-friendly trail mix and this recipe hits a homerun every time! My advice: double the batch from the start, it's that addicting!
Ingredients you'll need:
- 1c of sliced almonds
- 1c of raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
- 1/2c chopped pecans
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/2c melted coconut oil
- 1/4c maple syrup
- 1/4c honey
- pinch or two of pink sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl and then add in all of the wet (melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and honey) ingredients. Once fully combined pour mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Spread mixture evenly onto the tray and pop into the oven for 10 - 15 minutes.
BE VERY CAREFUL not to burn your granola.
