So I'm only a few days into the 2013 Whole Living 3-week Detox and while I have been thrilled with all of the recipes so far, this one snack recipe is so easy and yummy I wanted to share. I may never buy trail mix again! Since it is part of the cleanse it has no processed sugar and no gluten...just four simple ingredients. Take less than 15 minutes to make, but make sure to make a double batch...it goes fast!
Original recipe can be found here, but I've also copied it below:
½ cup shelled, unsalted pistachios
½ cup chopped unsweetened dried apricots
½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes, toasted*
½ cup chopped unsalted almonds, toasted*
Mix all four ingredients together in a bowl and enjoy! Can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
If you have a hard time finding unsweetened coconut or unsweetened apricots check your local health food store or Whole Foods.
*To toast the coconut and chopped almonds simply spread them out on a foil-lined pan and pop in the oven at 350 degrees for roughly 5 minutes. Keep an eye on them...once the coconut starts to brown around the edges it's done but can start to burn quickly.
