Trail Mix

Soooo, as you may have noticed....it's been awhile since I've written a post. What happened was...I had a baby. He's awesome and no longer a baby. So here's an attempt at putting more stuff on here!

This is a recipe for trail mix. It's so good! Kinda sticky so you have to use a spoon or wash your hands after you eat it. I prefer to put it in some Greek vanilla yogurt.  My mom gave me this recipe so I'm not sure where it came from. I've customized it a bit.

  • 5 Cups nuts and seeds of your choice (I use 1 C each of slivered almonds, sunflower seeds, chopped walnuts, chopped pecans and pumpkin seeds)
  • 1/3 C coconut oil
  • 1/3 C honey
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 2 t vanilla
  • 1 C shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • 1 C dried cranberries
  1. Put your nuts in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a small pot, melt honey and oil.
  3. When it is all melted, turn off the heat.
  4. Add cinnamon and vanilla to honey/oil mix.
  5. Turn the oven on to 300 deg.
  6. Pour the mixture over the nuts and stir well.
  7. Spread on a cookie sheet and bake for 15 min.
  8. Stir the nuts around and bake for another 10ish minutes. Be careful not to burn them!
  9. When it's all done, put it back in your bowl and add the coconut and cranberries.
  10. Spread it back on the baking sheet to cool.
  11. Enjoy!
