Everything You Need to Make a Keto-Friendly Trail Mix

  • Pecans – one of my very favorite keto nuts. Along with Brazil nuts, pecans boast the lowest net carbs per nut. Both Brazil nuts and pecans have just 4 net carbs per 3.5 ounces.
  • Macadamia Nuts – one of the other lowest net carb, keto-friendly nuts? Macadamia nuts. Macadamia nuts have just 5 net carbs per serving, versus cashews with 22 net carbs per serving and pistachios with 15 net carbs per serving. [1] [2]
  • Sunflower Seeds or Pine Nuts – you can also use whole flax seeds, sesame seeds and chia seeds for to keep this keto trail mix keto-friendly.
  • Keto Chocolate Chips – one of the best keto-friendly ingredients in my pantry to ward off chocolate cravings. These keto chocolate chips are stevia-sweetened, low carb, and actually delicious.

This is the base recipe for keto trail mix, so if you feel like customizing it a bit to your liking, feel free to do so! 🙂 I pared this homemade keto trail mix recipe down to the lowest carb ingredients so that you can eat more!

It’s embarrassingly easy to make homemade keto trail mix. Simply add all of the nuts, seeds and chocolate chips into a mixing bowl. Then, stir the ingredients together until well-mixed. Scoop up a ¼ cup serving and enjoy the best keto-friendly trail mix! 

Storing Your Homemade Keto Trail Mix

Feel free to store your keto trail mix for up to 1 month. Just make sure to keep your trail mix in an airtight container, away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Sunlight and heat can dramatically spoil food (and straight-up melt your keto chocolate chips!).
