Snack Attack to the Max

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!

Ingredients:

  • 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)

 

Directions:
