Dark Chocolate-Almond Trail Mix

Trail mix is such a great snack and so easy to make! I make a mix with some healthy ingredients I usually have on hand—dried cranberries, coconut flakes, roasted almonds, chopped dates, and of course, dark chocolate chips! If you’re not crazy about dates, you can chop up your favorite energy or protein bar and use that instead! I often use different chocolate flavors of Lärabars in this trail mix instead of dates! RX BARs would be good too!

I eat way too many of them! One year, I told myself I would not buy any of those eggs unless I used them in a recipe. So I came up with this Easter Trail Mix—a blend of chocolatey sweets mixed in with some healthy ingredients. The mini speckeled eggs and pastel M&M’s give the mix plenty of chocolatey taste and spring color, and the other goodies include raisins, sunflower kernels, coconut flakes, peanuts, and mini pretzel twists. This recipe makes a large bowl of trail mix, so there’s plenty for everyone to munch on!
