How to make healthy trail mix

August 23rd, 2019 Food

This healthy trail mix is a lifesaver when we’re busy and keen to get outside and make the most of the summer. It’s easy to make a big batch and store in the cupboard for outdoor adventures, with or without the kids. High in protein and natural sugars, it packs a nutritious punch right when you need it.

½ cup chopped 85% dark chocolate

1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

½ teaspoon ground ginger
