Trail Mix. It's a high energy, yummy snack that is super quick and easy to make. I don't know why I didn't think of making it sooner. There are tons of variations and ingredients that you can use to make it your very own. This recipe uses nine ingredients and took less than five minutes to put together. My five year-old daughter loves it as well. Of course, she likes the chocolate chips, but we also used it as a teaching tool. While we were eating the mix, several times she picked up something and asked, "What is this?" It was a great opportunity for her to learn about fun, healthy ingredients!
Out of all of the ingredients I used, I knew that I definitely wanted to include dark chocolate. I used dark chocolate chips. I like to incorporate dark chocolate in my vegan dessert recipes. I purchased an extra package when I made the no bake dark chocolate peanut butter bars, so I decided to put them to good use. Dark chocolate has several amazing health benefits as well. It's a powerful source of antioxidants, and the plant phenols in dark chocolate have been shown to lower blood pressure! Just make sure you buy the kind that has at least 70% pure cacao or cocoa solids.
Sweet, crunchy, nutty, dark chocolatey, and only nine ingredients to make!
