Paleo Snack Mix

Paleo Snack Mix - Dark Chocolate, dried fruit, seeds and nuts - throw it together and put in portion control zip lock bags

Paleo snack mix is loaded with a healthy crunch and sweet and salty goodness. It is the perfect grab-n-go snack!

I’m always looking for a good, quick and easy snack in the summer. When it’s hot and humid outside, I just don’t feel like eating in the middle of the day.

My friend, Becky, shared her paleo snack mix recipe with me at the pool one afternoon, and I had to make some! Becky started eating paleo about a year ago. She also shared a great paleo breakfast recipe with me.

I am not paleo, and never will be, because I’m not about to give up anything with cheese! I’ve never met a cheese I didn’t like. But that’s another story for another day. I can, however, indulge in some of their healthy snack recipes when I’m trying to be good!

Paleo Snack Mix - Dark Chocolate, dried fruit, seeds and nuts - throw it together and put in portion control zip lock bags

This Paleo snack mix is full of seeds, nuts, dried fruits, and CHOCOLATE!!!

The chocolate takes it over the top, so it’s pretty much gourmet trail mix! I made mine with small milk chocolate pieces because I had them on hand, but Becky’s was made with large Ghirardelli DARK CHOCOLATE baking chips, which was really better. (Fun Fact: Dark chocolate is actually a really healthy snack choice in moderation. Among other things, it promotes healthy blood flow in the arteries which in turn could help prevent blockages! For more information on the benefits of dark chocolate go here.) So when you see the recipe below, be sure to follow that ingredient instruction.

Once I made the paleo snack mix, I stored it in these great portion pack zip bags, from Target. Now I can just grab and go.

  1. I'm always looking for great snacks to include in my son's lunch. He's on a gluten free diet right now and trying to eat as clean as possible. He loved this recipe! Said it was his favorite trail mix. I used dried cranberries instead of the dried cherries. Thanks for this recipe!
    1. You are welcome that is so sweet I'm glad he loves it! I have made it with dried cranberries too I love that you can change it up a bit.

    Hi there. I was just curious how many servings the Paleo Snack Mix was. I am trying to find out calories.
      1. Hello! Great snack mix - I'm not finding what the calorie count is for the actual serving of 1 cup. Do you provide that? Thanks!
  3. Oh this looks so delicious! I am totally lost when it comes to Paleo, and I don't think I'm ready to give up cheese just yet, either. This snack mix is a good place for me to start. Pinned!
