Coconut flake trail mix that can be enjoyed alone or with tropical dried fruit or chocolatey add ons.
2 cups mixed nuts such as macademia nuts, cashews, almonds, brazil nuts
1/3 cup coconut flakes
Optional: 1/2 tsp coconut sugar
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place the nuts in a single file on a lined baking sheet and if desired sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for 4-6 minutes. Add coconut flakes, if desired sprinkle with coconut sugar or brown sugar, and bake another 5-8 minutes, checking after five minutes so they dont burn. Take out of the oven and cool. If not using coconut bake nuts for about 10-14 minutes or til golden brown.
If desired stir in chopped dried pineapple or dried chopped mango or dried cherries or cranberries and/or dairy free/vegan semisweet/dark chocolate chips or chunks.
