For the party, I decided to make my own trail mix and then pop scoops of the snack into little cellophane bags topped with these little free printable TRAIL MIX tags. Cute and so easy to do – perfect for our llama trek in the mountains.
I don’t have a proper recipe but preheat your oven to 180 degrees and position a rack in the centre of the oven. In a large mixing bowl, add allsorts of nuts: cashews, walnuts, hazelnuts, pecan nuts and then add coconut flakes, almond flakes and cranberries. Sprinkle some sugar and cinnamon on top. In a small pot over low heat, warm coconut oil and maple syrup and pour over the dry ingredients and mix well. Spread the mixture evenly onto a large baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until deep golden brown. The coconut oil will help this granola crisp up nicely, but be sure to watch it carefully as it browns quickly. Once the granola is done cooking, remove from the oven and let cool completely. Store in a container with an air-tight seal, and it should keep for a few weeks.
