So I tried this store-bought bag of this amazing snack a couple weeks ago. It was supposed to be a paleo version of a cross between a Chex Mix alternative and a trail mix of sorts. It was super addicting and super delicious.
Two problems exist with this item. 1. It is way too pricey. 2. I can consume the whole bag by myself within a matter of hours… or minutes if no one is watching.
I was determined to recreate this snack and I think I did just the trick!
- 1 plantain sliced thin with either a knife or a mandolin
- 1/8 cup melted coconut oil
- 1 tsp of coconut flour
- 1 cup walnuts or pecans or a mix
- 1 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1 tsp of beet powder
- seasonings to taste (I used a mix of garlic powder, sea salt, oregano, and South African Smoke Seasoning)
