Halloween Trail Mix

Kitchen Tested
  • Yield servings

Stir up a healthy mix of oats, nuts, coconut and a bit of chocolate for Halloween treats.

Be sure to cool the oat-nut mixture completely before adding the chocolate chunks so they don’t melt.

Ingredients

3 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup almonds, chopped
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 pinch sea salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 cups dried cranberries
1 1/2 cups shredded sweetened coconut
2 cups semisweet chocolate chunks or chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300F. In a deep bowl, add the oats, almonds, pumpkin seeds and salt. Toss well to mix. Pour in the olive oil and maple syrup, and stir well, using a rubber spatula, until mixture is well coated. Scrape mixture onto a rimmed 11-inch by 16-inch baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring once halfway through.

  2. Remove baking sheet from oven, stir in the dried cranberries and coconut. Set tray on a wire rack and cool completely. Once cooled, toss in chocolate chunks. Divide into individual treat bags or store trail mix in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to one week.
