Superfood Fruit Nut and Seed Snack Mix

Superfood-Fruit-Nut-and-Seed-Snack-Mix

This Superfood Fruit Nut and Seed Snack Mix is probably one of the easiest and healthiest snacks to throw together.

I often send a jar of plain cashews or almonds to work with my husband to snack on during the day.

Since my cabinets are full of other goodies like superfoods, nuts, seeds and dried fruit, I decided to upgrade his jar this time and make this addictive power packed snack.

What’s so great about this is you can change it up and add whatever you have on hand, or prefer.

It’s perfect for traveling, taking to work, or just having on hand when healthy snack options aren’t available.

And, I have a feeling his jar will come back to be refilled much sooner than it was before!

Where to Buy:  If you have any trouble finding the ingredients to make this recipe, you can order online from Amazon and have them delivered straight to your door and, you’ll be supporting The Healthy Family and Home website at the same time!

 

 

Tip #1:  I used a variety of nuts, seeds and dried fruits that I had on hand…feel free to substitute with your own favorites.

Tip #2:  This isn’t a very sweet snack mix so if you’d like to add a little sweetness to it, you could add some vegan/gluten-free chocolate chips.

Tip #3:  My almonds, cashews and sunflower seeds were all soaked/dehydrated before adding them to the mix.
