sweet keto trail mix

Need a quick keto snack?

Homemade keto trail mix is such an easy recipe to make, and even more satisfying since you know exactly what’s going into the mix. This keto-friendly recipe is incredibly delicious, and makes the perfect snack packed with all the nutrients we need.

No need to cave-in to sugar on the keto lifestyle. The rich, buttery syrup – which coats the nuts and seeds, takes this trail mix from blah to WOW in a matter of minutes! Plus, this snack can be made ahead of time to last you throughout the whole week.

Hip Recipe Tips:

    • Make cleanup a breeze! Add parchment paper to your cookie sheet to help with removal and clean up.
    • Spice things up. If desired, omit the chocolate chips, and add 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to create a spicy-sweet mix.
    • Experiment with different flavors. If you are wanting a festive keto trail mix, add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg, and a small handful of dried berries (optional). Note: dried fruit will add to the overall carb-count so use sparingly.
    • Save on ingredients. I try to buy my nuts in bulk at Costco or Sam’s Club since they often offer the best deals. You can also change up the variety with your preferred low carb nuts.
    • Use what you have on hand. I bought the nuts and seeds raw since they roast during the baking process, but if you’re looking to use roasted nuts you already have on hand, feel free to sub those it. You could even use a salted variety, if desired, for a salty-sweet taste!
    • Keep it fresh all week. Store the trail mix in an air-tight container for up to 7 days.

    Where does the sugar alcohol come from?

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Mary! It comes from the lakanto syrup and the chocolate chips. Hope this helps!

  2. JVP

    Can I use sugar free maple syrup instead?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! Any sugar free syrup that fits into your carb count will work. 😊

  3. djfrog13

    I couldn’t see how to rate this recipe. Tapped the stars and it ended up rating it at 4 stars! 🥴. No way – this is definitely 5 STARS but it won’t let me change it ! I switched it slightly given the ingredients I had on hand – but very similar. Absolutely delish! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Sherry

    Can I use sugar free honey?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      We haven’t tried that one ourselves, but it should work fine! Let us know how it works out, Sherry!

  5. Tiffany A

    Super bummed. This smelled so good cooking, unfortunately I didn’t check on it and 40 minutes ended up being too long and it’s a bit burnt. I’m hoping it will still taste ok.

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Tiffany. Darn, I’m sorry that it burnt. Hopefully, it still tasted good❤

  6. Isabelle

    Simply delicious. I sprinkled some salt on top before letting it cool down and it tasted amazing. I will definitely be doing this recipe often!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      YUM! SO happy you enjoyed it and can now make it regularly! Thanks for letting us know how it turned out!

  7. Schmoogie

    I just made a batch of this and I’m pretty sure it will be gone by tomorrow. ❤️

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi there Schmoogie! It is so yummy 😋 Thank you for the feedback!

  8. Jill

    I don’t have the syrup, any suggestions on what else I could use?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Jill! Any sugar free syrup will work! Hope this helps!

  9. peppercat1

    I made this with ChocZero caramel syrup instead of maple syrup. Amazing, only problem is I have trouble not eating the entire batch. Calling it Keto crack!!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh yea! LOVE that!
