I made a delicious fall inspired trail mix this past fall, and I loved it so much I thought it would be an awesome idea to make a winter trail mix too. I really love trail mix and I find it’s always so easy to throw together any combination and achieve a good result. But sometimes I want to add certain ingredients to create a specific flavour profile, like with this winter trail mix. I was inspired by ingredients like cranberries, hazelnuts, dark chocolate, and coconut. If you don’t have macadamia nuts, you can definitely sub this nut with something like almonds or walnuts if you prefer. I used the Enjoy Life brand of chocolate chunks, but you can use any dark chocolate chips or chunks that you like.
Trail mix is one of my go to snacks for a lot of different purposes. I love bringing it on the go, taking it camping and on hikes, and also just eating between meals when I feel like it. I also really enjoy it because it’s a snack that’s on the sweeter side, yet the nuts have good blood sugar balancing properties. One serving of this winter trail mix provides you with approximately 15% of your daily magnesium, 32% of your daily fiber, 36% of your daily vitamin e, and 37% of your daily iron!
