Simple Low Sugar Trail Mix

We all love trail mix when we are having a busy day. However it is hard to find a quality trail mix that is not packed with sugar galore.  Make sure to read ingredients and monitor sugar grams – aim for <7 g of sugar/serving.   Ideally, you can easily make your own.

Batch of Low Sugar Trail Mix (1 serving is approx 1/4 cup):

  • Your favorite nuts, 1 cup (almonds, walnuts, cashews, pistachios, etc).  Use mostly raw nuts but it’s nice to add in a hint of flavor with some roasted and lightly salted nuts.
  • Pumpkin or sunflower seeds, 1/2 cup.  Seeds are so nutrient dense and packed with protein.
  • 1/2 cup Banana chips.  Surprisingly, these are the lowest sugar fruit I can find.  The product I buy contains only 3 grams of sugar in 1/4 cup.
  • Unsweetened toasted coconut flakes, 1/4 – 1/2 cup
  • Dark chocolate chips.  Use sparingly (sprinkle – 1/4 cup).

Store-bought Trail Mix? Easy fix! Add a bag of your favorite raw nut to lessen the sugar load.
