It’s the perfect companion for your next adventure or a movie night in. Grab a handful, and let the snacking begin!

IngredientsServings: 4

  • 1 cup canned chickpeas rinsed, drained and pat dry
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ cup almonds
  • ½ cup cashews
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional: ½ cup dark chocolate

Directions:

1

Preheat your oven to 400°F (175°C). On a baking tray or cast iron pan, toss the chickpeas with olive oil, sea salt, smoked paprika, and garlic powder until evenly coated. Spread the chickpeas in a single layer and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until crispy. Remove from the oven and allow the chickpeas and nuts to cool completely.

2

In a large bowl, add the roasted almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, and dark chocolate.

3

Add the roasted chickpeas and mix well. Serve and enjoy.

Notes:

  • You can use dark chocolate chips or give your favourite dark chocolate bar a rough chop for chunkier pieces of chocolate.
  • Pick a dark chocolate that contains at least 70% cacao, because the cocoa powder contains all the benefits of chocolate.
  • Store the trail mix in an airtight container at room temperature.

Bon appétit and enjoy! 🥰☀️

    When do you roast the nuts? Is that with the chick peas? Sounds delicious!

    Being a snacker, I’m always looking for something healthy to snack on. I made this snack almost as is and was surprised how much I liked it. I don’t buy canned chick peas. I buy them dried, then cook them in my instant pot. I drain/dry them, then put them in a ziplock bag and freeze them so they are ready when I need them. Instead of the oven I did the chick peas in my air fryer for about 15 minutes and put the raw almonds in with them for the last 5 minutes or so. Really tasty! Thanks for the recipe.

    Hi. I’m sure I’m just missing it, but I just can’t seem to figure out how to print these recipes?

      I use an app called copymethat and then use my phone. It puts it in a more mobile friendly format and keeps your screen on while you’re viewing the recipe. There’s a free version and a paid version.

      Theo organic 85% cacoa bars are excellent. I have not been able to find chocolate chips yet but you can cut the bar with a knife!

        Hi Barbra Anne

    You did not mention roasting the almonds and cashews. Do we put the same seasonings as on the chickpeas? Cook at the same temp? For how long?
    This sounds amazing! Can’t wait to make it.

    Like so many others who’ve responded to this recipe, I don’t know what kind of chickpeas to use. I have ones that are dried and I would have to cook them first I would assume but who knows? Also, why can’t you just roast all the nuts together at the same time, or are you saying you have to pre-roast the other nuts before adding them to the chickpeas? Can you clarify?

      I use canned organic chick peas/garbanzo for roasting. If you have dried and have an Instant Pot that would be easy to cook them first and then roast some for the recipe…

    First of all, canned or dried chickpeas? Secondly, I assume that I should purchase **roasted** cashews, almonds and sunflower seeds, since no instructions are provided for roasting them myself? This recipe looks terrific but the recipe certainly requires some clarification.

      The recipe says canned chickpeas which you have to drain, rinse and pat dry.

    Are these dry chickpeas in the bag that you rinse and drain and dry — OR — are these canned chickpeas that you rinse drain and dry??????????????????

    Reading both the ingredients and the directions I guess the ingredients should list: smoked paprika, raw cashews, raw almonds, raw sunflower seeds. And that the cashews, almonds, sunflower seeds should be roasted with the chick peas?

      I don’t see anything that would indicate using raw nuts, just dry the chickpeas. If there’s a reason for raw let me know.

      I regularly make my own roasted nuts so I can say positively that the nuts and seeds need to be roasted separately as they all take different times to roast.

    Sounds wonderful. My daughter is always asking if I have Trail Mix. Next time I will surprise her with the good stuff.

    Could you clarify when the nuts get roasted? With the Chickpeas? The directions only mention the chickpeas. Thank you.

    When I make TRAIL mix besides your ingredients I also add pumpkin seeds and Hemp Protein or Hemp seeds. I have never tried adding the chickpeas. I will think about that next time I make it. Are chickpeas mild or how would you describe their taste ?

      Chickpeas definitely have their own unique taste. If you’ve ever had hummus, that’s basically chickpeas with flavors added such as garlic. I would say it’s pretty mild tasting like a peanut.
