Trail Mix Option #1: Paleo Crunch
(It’s a little more work than option #2, but A-MAZING!)
WARNING: Seriously addictive! Make sure only to have ¼ cup at a time!
- ½ cup ground flax seeds
- 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
- 1 cup raw sunflower seeds
- 1.5 cup almond meal
- 3 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
- 4 cups raw slivered almonds
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- ½ tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 cup liquefied coconut oil
- 1/3 cup raw organic honey
- 3 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 250 °F Combine all of the dry ingredients (EXCEPT the dried fruit) into a large bowl. Mix well to make sure all of the ingredients are evenly distributed.
In a medium bowl, add all of the wet ingredients & mix together until well combined. Next, mix wet ingredients thoroughly into dry ingredients. Divide the mixture in a thin layer between 2 rimmed baking sheets and press mixture with the back of a spoon or spatula until flat. Bake until lightly toasted. (About 45-60 minutes)
Remove pan from oven, stir mixture & return to oven for another 15 minutes. Remove from oven, stir in dried fruit if using and let cool in the pans. Store in a container with a paper towel on bottom to absorb any excess oil.
