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!

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.

    I ran across this mix today on Pinterest-this is just what we need to have handy for snacks, it will keep my girls from rummaging for not so healthy snacks. Love your other recipes too. Thanks, Kary

      Hi there Kary! Thanks so much and this is a really good recipe because you can pretty much customize it to whatever you like or have on hand. The main thing is to just make sure it’s whole, real and nutrient-dense ingredients that are added in.

      And because it is so nutrient-dense, you will stay satisfied longer because you aren’t eating empty calories.

      Thanks again and I hope your girls enjoy it 😉
