DIY Trail Mix


  • 1 cup whole or sliced raw almonds
  • 1 cup raw walnut pieces
  • ½ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • ½ - 1 cup goji berries OR dried raisins OR dried cranberries – no sugar added
  • 2 TBSP unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 TBSP dried ginger
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper (optional) -- if you like a “sweet and spicy” flavor!

You can substitute other raw healthy nuts, such as Brazil nuts, filberts, cashews – it’s YOUR trail mix! The key is to avoid ingredients loaded with sugar or unhealthy carbs.


Combine all ingredients into a large bowl or zip bag; shake well. Pour into smaller containers for an on-the-go snack to take on your walks, hikes, or even in carpool line!

Makes 5 – 7 servings.
