With this Tutorial on How To Make Keto Trail Mix, You’ll get the low-down on what to include and how to customize your homemade trail mix to your needs and wants. I give you an easy recipe for Crunchy, Salty Keto Trail Mix, that’s perfect for Hiking, Driving or Just for Snacking on while at Work or at Home watching Netflix. The recipe has many variations so if you prefer your trail mix sweeter… I’ve got you covered.
What to Add:
Feel free to use any kind of nuts. I prefer to use Pecans and Walnuts but you can use any kind of nut you like. Other options include Almonds, Cashews Peanuts, Pistachios and Macadamia Nuts.
Don’t Forget the seeds! Seeds are actually packing a serious nutritional punch and are often loaded with fibre. I used Pumpkin and Chia Seeds but again you can use any type of seeds you like. Sunflower, Flax, Hemp, Squash and Sesame Seeds are other great options.
Dried No Sugar Added Berries
Dried Berries add some extra sweetness, chewy texture and irresistible fruity flavour. Cranberries and Blueberries are my two favourites but you can use any Low Carb Berries you like. Strawberries, Blackberries and Raspberries are also great options.
Other Optional Mix-Ins
Some other optional mix-ins are Low Carb Chocolate, Low Carb crackers, Pork Rinds, Unsweetened Coconut.
Coating the trail mix with frothy egg white before baking with help give it some extra crunch.
A little melted butter or coconut oil drizzled over the trail mix before baking will help the slow roast.
Molasses does have 5g net carbs per Tsp but it’s also rich in vitamins and minerals, such as iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin B6 and selenium. I like the flavour it adds and 5 net g of carbs over 14 servings isn’t too bad in my books.
Optional Trail Mix Flavours:
A little Pink Himalayan Salt with a hint of Garlic makes an Amazing Savoury Trail Mix, that’s a perfect low carb substitute for Salty Popcorn or Chips.
If you prefer a Sweeter Trail mix…skip the molasses, salt, garlic and onion powder. Instead add 1 Tsp of Cinnamon and 2 Tbsp of Powdered Swerve or Granulated Sweetener to the frothy egg white.
Cocoa powder is another great option, if you like your trail mix sweet. Again…skip the molasses, salt, garlic and onion powder. Instead add 1 Tbsp of Cocoa powder and 2 Tbsp of Powdered Swerve or Granulated Sweetener to the frothy egg white.
Peanut butter is another great trail mix flavour option if you like a sweeter trail mix. To make peanut butter trail mix you skip the molasses, garlic and onion powder and salt. Instead add 2 Tbsp of Natural Peanut Butter and 2 Tbsp of Powdered Swerve or Granulated Sweetener to the frothy egg white.
How To Make Keto Trail Mix
To make this Keto Trail Mix Recipe, you start by preheating your oven to 325 F. Then, on an un-greased cookie sheet, roast the pumpkin seeds for 2 minutes or until you hear them start pop. Remove from the oven, stir them around then return to the oven until you start to hear the pop again(approx. 2 mins). Remove from the oven, then set aside. Spread the pecans, walnuts and chia seeds on the baking pan. Roast until aromatic, approx. 4 – 5 minutes.
Then in a large mixing bowl, beat the egg white until frothy. Add the molasses, sweetener, 1/2 a tsp of salt, garlic and onion powder to the beaten egg white. Mix until well combined. Reduce oven to 250 F. Spead the trail mix evenly over the baking pan, then drizzle with the melted butter. Sprinkle with the remaining salt. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, stirring a few times throughout.
What is the Ketogenic Diet?
The ketogenic diet (often called keto) is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares similarities to paleo, Whole30, and Atkins. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. When your body switches to burning fat for its primary fuel source, that’s when you hit ketosis.
While on the Keto diet you’re supposed to get at least 70 percent of your calories from fat, 15 to 25 percent from protein, and 10 percent from carbohydrates. You’re supposed to avoid all grains, legumes, root vegetables, fruit, (except berries) and sugar.
