An easy, make-ahead snack option that’s ready in just minutes, full of delicious ingredients, and 100% kid-approved! With loads of chocolate, almonds, and coconut, this Chocolate Almond Coconut Snack Mix is a sweet-and-salty treat to satisfy any craving and power you through all of your adventures!
Do you guys love to snack as much as we do? With three little boys (and one big boy), I never leave home without a full stash of munchies in my bag. That’s especially true when we’re off on active adventures! It doesn’t take long before our stomachs are growling and looking for fuel!
Blue Diamond Roasted Salted Almonds have been a favorite snack in our house for years. Gibbs was devouring handfuls of them long before he could even say the word “almond,” so they are a regular pantry staple around here.
And mixing the salty, crunchy almonds with coconut and chocolate? It’s pretty much SNACK HEAVEN.
That’s why this guy was very excited to help me toss together a batch of the mix before we headed out on a family hike last weekend!
This “recipe” is so easy that even a 5-year-old can do it. 🙂
Since it was about 100 degrees at our house on Sunday afternoon, we decided to take a short 20 minute drive to one of our favorite local hikes in Shenandoah National Park: White Oak Canyon. It’s always cooler there, and the shade from the thick trees is perfect at this time of year!
With snack mix (or in this case, “Trail Mix”) in hand, we took off on our little adventure.
I’m not sure what made the boys happier: a cool adventure in the woods, or a chocolatey treat to power them through!
By the end of the hike we had all finished our (large) bags of snack mix!
I love that this easy-to-prep treat can be made in advance and stored in my pantry for those days when we’re rushing out the door and need something simple to bring along with us.
It also happens to be a great option for those mid-afternoon munchies or the post-dinner chocolate craving that always seems to strike. With a glass of cold milk it’s just.right.
