Everyone wants snack recipes, so I've got one for you. I came up with this after a very kind gentleman in our Facebook group suggested that a ketofied trail mix would be ideal to take on a camping trip. He was right, of course, and so this recipe was born.

This recipe is insanely easy to customize to your own tastes, so feel free to swap out spices, seasonings, and your favorite flavored MCT powder (mine is Ballistic Keto). Can’t find a flavor you like? Have plain powder? Go ahead and use it! Just add 1/2 tap your favorite extract for flavor. Are you missing pumpkin spice already? Swap out the spice mix for the cinnamon. The personalized flavor combos are really endless.
