Typically I like to eat raw nuts because they have the highest nutritional content before they are roasted at high heat. But, sometimes you just want a change! And, a homemade trail mix is much better tasting and better for you than store bought because you can control the quantities of the sweet items so you are not eating too much sugar per serving.
The key to this is something a little salty and something a little sweet. I buy all my nuts from trader joes and combine together in a canister.
- 1 cup roasted unsalted almonds
- 1 cup 50% less salted peanuts
- 1 cup unsweetened banana chips
- ½ cup organic raisins
Mix together, serving size is 1/3 cup.
