Kanwal’s Healthy Corner – My Go-To Trail Mix

I think everyone should always keep a couple of go-to snacks in their bag. I know I always have go-to snacks ready because with the busy lives we live today, you never know just how late you will eat, and it’s important to have something to tie you over. Something healthy and nutritious and of course… Easy to make! My number 1 go-to snack is trail mix. I love trail mix because I can decide what I want in it and there are a million plus ways to make your own trail mix. Also, why pay so much for portion controlled snacks when you can buy snack baggies and make all this on your own! Below you will find my recipe for my own standard go-to trail mix. You can use my recipe as a base and add dried fruit, chocolate chips, pistachios etc. You can also add whatever seasonings you like. The possibilities are endless!


  • 1/4c. of currants
  • 1/4c. of roasted almonds
  • 1/4c. of unsweetened carob chips
  • 1/4c. of raw cashews
  • 1/4c. of raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4c. of raw sunflower seeds


Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl. With a ¼ measuring cup, measure it out into 6 snack baggies.

Makes 6 quarter-cup servings

As a personal aside, this is such a protein-packed recipe, truly the best way to replenish your energy when you feel it getting zapped. Between the carob chips, cashews and sunflower/pumpkin seeds, you are getting about 10 grams of protein in each baggie!!
