Chunky Monkey Trail Mix
- 1/2 cup (75g) raw almonds
- 1/4 cup (22g) unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1/4 cup (75g) banana chips
- 1/4 cup (75g) peanut butter chips (certified gluten-free if necessary)
- 1/4 cup (44g) semisweet chocolate chunks or chocolate chips (certified gluten-free if necessary)
Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Place almonds and coconut on a baking sheet, and bake for about 10 minutes.
Remove from oven. Allow almonds and coconut to cool a bit before placing in a large mixing bowl. Add in banana chips, peanut butter chips and chocolate chunks. Give the mixture a stir. If the nuts are still a little warm, the chocolate and peanut butter chips will melt and create chunks of trail mix.
Pour mixture onto parchment paper, and place in the fridge to set up. Remove from fridge, and enjoy. Store any leftovers in an airtight container.
