Travel Snacks: Sunflower Seed Trail Mix

This summer has been filled with more travel than normal so I’ve become really good at creating travel snacks that are filling, healthy and most importantly cost effective! Today I’m flying out west to take Loki home to be with my brother (his dad). I’ve got a 4 hour flight ahead of me so I wanted to make sure I had enough snacks because buying food at the airport is costly and can often be unhealthy and something about traveling makes me think I need snacks!

Travel Snacks: Sunflower Trail Mix

Raw sunflower seeds, raw almonds, unsweetened coconut and Enjoy Life Mini Chips make up this awesome mix. Healthy fats to hold satiate you and a little bit of sweet with the coconut and chocolate chips.

Here’s the mix:

  • 1/3 Cup Raw Sunflower Seeds (290)
  • 24 Raw Almonds (168)
  • 3Tbsp Shredded Unsweetened Coconut (100)
  • 2Tbsp Enjoy Life Mini Chips (160)

The total for the mix is 718 calories, so make sure you account for this in your daily calories or divvy this mix into a few portions. This would be ideal if you plan on spending the day traveling as you could easily use this to fill 2 meals worth of calories!

This would also be a great snack for kids to take to school. You would need to remove the almonds to make it nut free. Kids love things they can eat with their fingers and this snack is a great way to get them some protein during their day. Adding dried apples would also be an amazing option.
