Now that we live in Moab, the adventure capital of the world, we are out and about all the time. Hiking, biking, exploring, road trips— every weekend we try to pick something new and fun to see and do.

Sometimes we wake up on Saturday morning and decide to take off somewhere and the scramble to get out the door ensues. Get the kids dressed, grab the sunscreen , fill up the water bottles, and throw a bunch of snacks in the cooler. Trail mix, not surprisingly, has become a pantry staple for just such occasions as this. But it can be so expensive! So I’ve started making my own.

The awesome thing about trail mix is you can really adapt it to your tastes. The most common mix you’ll find at the store is peanuts, cashews, M&Ms, and raisins, but there are so many more flavorful options and combinations. Get creative! Use whatever combo of nuts, seeds, dried fruit, and sweets you like.

Another great thing about trail mix is it’s literally just throwing stuff in a bag. Healthy snacking on the go could not be easier.

This trail mix is filled with some of my favorite things— almonds, pecans, pumpkin seeds, dried cherries, dried blueberries, coconut, and (my favorite) chocolate covered coffee beans. It’s got it all, and I love snacking on it.

The chocolate covered coffee beans are a fun way to get your chocolate fix and a little pick-me-up, but if you want to make this mix kid-friendly, you can always substitute chocolate chips.

Put together a batch, portion it out into bags, and have it on hand for summer hikes, road trips, afternoons at the pool, etc. It’ll become your summer go-to!

Coffee House Trail Mix

 An energy snack mix filled with nuts, seeds, fruit, coconut, and chocolate.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (142 grams) Diamond of California Whole Almonds
  • 1 cup (113 grams) Diamond of California Shelled Pecans
  • 1 cup (200 grams) raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup (140 grams) dried cherries
  • 1 cup (156 grams) dried blueberries
  • 1 cup (113 grams) coconut (see Note)
  • 1 cup (160 grams) chocolate covered coffee beans

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
Note: I like to use roasted coconut chips that you can find in well-stocked grocery and specialty stores. They're crunchy and a lit bit sweet. But shaved or flaked coconut (either sweetened or unsweetened) will work too.
