Blueberry Vanilla Cashew Trail Mix

About a year ago, I came up with a recipe for copycat KIND bars.  The KIND bar recipe that I created was modeled after the trail mix brand.  It’s been on my mind to create another KIND bar recipe ever since.  So the other day I attempted another.  This one was for the Blueberry Vanilla Cashew flavor.  Well mine didn’t exactly hold together well, but the flavor was AMAZING so I had to share it in the form of trail mix.

Simple Roasted Pepitas

Did you know that eating something salty can curb a sweet tooth?  I swear it works.  I keep roasted pepitas on hand all the time for that very reason. If you don’t know what pepitas are, they are the inside part of a pumpkin seed.  Roasted pepitas have such great flavor.  Pepitas are also a great source of magnesium and omega 3 fatty acid.  When made in this fashion, they can be quite addicting.  My kids love them as well.

Salted Cashew Chocolate Clusters

I can’t think of a single person that doesn’t like cashews or chocolate.  Cashews are so buttery and delicious.  When you pair cashews with salted chocolate, you really get a match made in heaven.  These salted cashew chocolate clusters are so good.  In fact, my husband ate most of them in about 2 days! Salty and sweet is the best combination.  These salted cashew chocolate clusters can make a healthier snack alternative to unhealthy candy bars.
