Trail Mix Bites

trail mix bites

Spring Cleaning time is approaching and I am starting with the cupboards and pantry this year.  I had a few partial packages of baking goods to use up, so I made some bite-sized snacks for lunches, etc.

I happened to have some shredded coconut, raisins and chocolate mini-chips, but one could add nuts, seeds and dried fruits of any kind – and I have in the past.  It’s all held together with coconut oil and a drizzle of maple syrup.  A dash of salt adds that extra “something”.  Cute mini-muffin cups make them extra-fun and a bit neater to eat – everybody loves that!

As with many of my recipes, I just eyeball the ingredients and taste-test along the way.
For this mix I combined the shredded coconut, raisins and Enjoy Life® mini chocolate chips in a bowl, added a drizzle of maple syrup, a dash of Himalayan salt and just enough melted coconut oil to hold it all together once chilled.  A small cookie scoop made quick work of portioning it into the mini-muffin cups.  [Chill and store in the fridge.]  Yummy!
