Halloween Trail Mix

  • Yield: servings

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


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


  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.
