Natural Trail Mix

This super easy trail mix is great for grab and goes snacking. Since it doesn’t contain any oats/granola, it is a great keto alternative to the commercial trail mixes out there. Almonds and cashews provide healthy servings of fats and oils, and, along with egg whites, are a great source of protein. 

Chia seeds have in recent years become a new superfood since they’re loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants. The raisins provide just a bit of natural fruit sweetness. The secret to big clusters is using egg whites as a binding agent.

You can also add unsweetened organic chocolate nibs, dried organic cranberries/strawberries/apples, or cinnamon and vanilla for more flavors. Making a big bag of this and then portioning it out for snacks can keep the whole family healthy and happy.
