Paleo Trail Mix #paleo #glutenfree #grainfree -

I love this Paleo Trail Mix because it’s full of flavor and wholesome ingredients, yet so easy to make. This is my husband’s favorite gluten-free snack. He chows down on a 1-quart jar of this mix each week. And he begs me to make more,  so I know it’s good. The mister can be a little finicky.

Now I recommend that your properly soak your nuts for 12 hours or overnight. Simply soak the raw nuts in filtered water with about a tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar. This helps to remove excess phytic acid from the nuts – making them more nutritious and digestible. You can then dehydrate them in the oven or a dehydrator for a few hours or until dry on a low setting.

This recipe doesn’t work well with just-soaked nuts. It’s best to dehydrate the soaked  nuts first. You can also buy nuts that have already been properly soaked and dehydrated. Here’s a great source for buying soaked and dehydrated mixed nuts.

You can also substitute with whatever nuts you have on hand and it will taste delicious.

I suggest storing this trail mix in an air-tight container to prevent it from going stale. This Paleo Trail Mix lasts about 1-2 weeks at room temperature.

Paleo Trail Mix – Maple Nut Flavor




  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well to coat maple syrup on dry ingredients.
  3. Line a large baking pan with parchment paper. This will make clean up so much easier. The maple syrup really sticks to the pan otherwise.
  4. Spread out mixture on parchment paper. Heat in oven for 15-20 min.
  5. Let cool and then store in a dry, airtight container.

I think these could be made into bars if you bake them in a 9 x 9 pan. Give a try and let me know how you like them.

    Hi there,
    This looks good, but just curious. Why go to all the trouble and expense to get raw nuts, when you are just going to bake all that goodness out of them?

    • I prefer raw nuts because I like to soak them and then roast them for a bit later. I’m sure you could use roasted nuts but I like my nuts a little on the raw side. Baking them for 20 minutes still gives it a raw taste with a little crispiness.

  7. Oh, this is even better than granola because it’s only the good stuff – the nuts and dried fruit! Yum!

  8. This was excellent! It tastes good with a little orange zest too.thanks for sharing.
