Spooky Good Trail Mix
It’s SO important to know what is in the food you eat. When you make it yourself, you have that power. This is a healthy alternative to a processed snack from the store. It’s low in sugar and fills you up. Make lots of extra and pack for an after school treat or a Halloween or movie night treat.Try to think of your own healthy toppings to swap in.
1 cup air-popped popcorn (Chik-a-Boom or Skinny Pop or pop-your own)
1 TBL shelled pumpkin seeds (raw or roasted)
1 TBL dark chocolate chips
1 TBL dried cranberries
1 TBL coconut shavings (raw or roasted)
1 shake of ground cinnamon
shake of paprika
dried cherries or chopped dried apricots
sprinkle parmesan cheese
Pop! Scoop! Spinkle! Shake! Share! Enjoy!
(To roast coconut and pumpkin seeds together, simply place on parchment paper or straight on a baking sheet. Spray with olive oil and sprinkle with a dash of salt. Roast at 350 for 5 minutes or until coconut browns and pumpkin seeds pop).
Popcorn is a whole grain. If you can find non-GMO kernels, even better. These ingredients provide anti-oxidants, fiber, and healthy fats. Such a great way to incorporate a new snack that is not processed!
