Ingredients 

  • 1 cup almonds
  • ½ cup pepitas
  • 1 cup dried apricots, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup reduced-sugar cranberries
  • 4 cups unsalted popcorn
  •  

How to make

1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Spread the almonds and pepitas across a large baking tray and roast for five minutes, or until lightly coloured. Allow to cool and then transfer to a large mixing bowl.

2. Add the dried apricots, cranberries and popcorn to the bowl and mix well to combine. Place the trail mix in a large air-tight container and serve out into eight portions, when required.

 

Notes

Leftover trail mix can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.

Roasting the nuts and seeds adds crunch and a deeper colour, however if you are short on time, feel free to skip this step.

Our recommended combination of nuts, seeds and dried fruit has a striking appearance and also provides a well-balanced mix of essential nutrients. However, if you prefer, feel free to substitute alternative ingredients from your pantry.
