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.
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.
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.
