Having trouble with quick on-the-go snacks? This is definitely my favorite Paleo Nut Mix Recipe. It’s perfect to bring on a road trip, with your lunch, or to keep in your car for hunger emergencies.
If you have some digestive issues with nuts, try going through a soaking process, in effort to try and eliminate anti-nutrients and tummy aches. I soak my nuts in Himalayan or sea salt overnight, then I dehydrate them in a dehydrator or in the oven on the lowest setting. Many people do not realize un-activated nuts have anti-nutrients which can attack the intestines similar to grains! I advise “activating” your nuts all at once in bulk! I did this and it lasted me weeks of healthy nuts.
Having snacks on hand is very important when it comes to staying healthy. If you are in a situation where there’s no Paleo options and you are very hungry, than having these nuts in your purse, car, backpack, etc. will be very helpful. This recipe is just my favorite nuts and seeds with a bit of sea salt and honey. You can add your favorite nuts, but remember peanuts are not actually nuts, they’re legumes and not technically Paleo.
Most people can easily overeat nuts, especially when they have some sea salt and honey on them! I like to portion mine out into small ziplocs so that I know the right serving size for a snack.
- ½ cup walnuts
- 1 cup pecans
- 1 cup almonds
- ½ cup pumpkin seeds
- ¼ cup raisins
- Local honey, usually 1-3 Tbsp (optional)
- Mix all ingredients.
- This is the ratio I use for my nut mix, but I make in much larger bulk. Feel free to half, double, or triple the recipe depending on how much you want to make. This is a great snack to keep in your purse for those times when there are no paleo options!
