Trail mix is a non-perishable, convenient snack that is energy-dense—meaning a lot of calories are packed into a small amount of food. It's meant to provide nourishment during strenuous activity, such as hiking (hence the name). A Low-carb, sugar-free trail mix is a great snack to have before or after a workout or a lot of activity, or simply as an emergency snack in your bag or backpack. Here is Lori's (our Keto specialist) go-to recipe to make your own trail mix. Create the mix of semi-sweet and savory flavors you want, and keep the carbs down.
Serving size: ⅓ cup; Recipe makes up to 4 cups.
