Keto-Friendly Ingredients 

We’ve got a mix of sweet and salty treats in this kept-friendly trail mix recipe:

Keto Friendly Trail Mix

Pecans – When it comes to nuts, pecans are one of the best options for a ketogenic diet. They are very low in carbs and high in fats. They’re also intensely flavored, nutty, and absolutely delicious paired with these other ingredients. 

Macadamia nuts – Another excellent choice when on keto, macadamia nuts have a buttery, rich flavor and a natural, subtle sweetness. Besides, they are a great source of the healthy monounsaturated fats that the low-carb diet relies on for energy.

Coconut chips – Coconut chips are delicious, add a lovely flavor to the mix and a little extra sweetness. Just make sure to look for unsweetened coconut chips. 

Dark chocolate almonds – Chocolate is not only delightful in taste, but it’s also a source of 

antioxidants. It also contains flavanols, which can lower the risk of heart disease by reducing blood pressure and keeping your arteries healthy. You may be surprised, but dark chocolate is ok on keto! In moderation, of course. However, it’s important to choose a chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa solids and no added sugars. These sugar free dark chocolate almonds are the perfect addition to this keto trail mix! 

Salted pumpkin seeds – Also known as pepitas, pumpkin seeds add a great crunch and saltiness to this trail mix. They’re a fantastic low-carb snack, also rich in vitamins and minerals like manganese and vitamin K.
