Allergy Friendly Trail Mix

This is the trail mix for people who are allergic to nuts and/or chocolate but still crave the sweet/crunchy taste! Frustrated for years at not being able to buy trail mix, I decided to share what I came up with. As U2 would say, I think it's "even better than the real thing"! The carob chips add a bit of fat, but, for non-chocolate eaters, they add that extra something you need here. If you can have chocolate, I recommend using dark choc. chips instead (no sat. fat!), but you may want to up the cranberries to 1 cup for sweetness. These are rough proportions--adjust to your taste.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Break banana chips into small (1/2 inch) pieces and place in a quart-size plastic storage bag or container with lid.
  2. Add cranberries, sunflower seeds, and carob or chocolate chips to the bag or container.
  3. Close bag or container and shake gently to mix.
  4. Taste mix and adjust ingredients to your level of salt/sweet and soft/crunchy.
