Dirty Keto Low Carb Trail Mix; No cooking! Easy to Make! Sweet and Salty! Crunchy and Chewy! Only 2.3 net carbs per serving!
Trail Mix is an old faithful snack for many but most include lots of sugar and carbs in chocolate and dried fruits. That is a no-no if you are eating a low carb or Keto diet.
This Dirty Keto Low Carb Trail Mix has all you are looking for in flavor and satisfaction of eating.
This trail mix is sweet and salty.
It is crunchy and chewy.
And at 2.3 net carbs, 11.3 grams of protein and 25.6 grams of fat per serving, it is a perfect Keto and low carb snack!
Depending on what protein bar you use, if you use one, and what meat sticks you use if you use them, it may or may not be dirty Keto. You could very well make a clean version.
These are the ingredients that will vary the most in how you make it. You certainly may not find or want exactly what I used.
I used a Power Bar Clean Whey Protein bar because that is what I had on hand. It has a net carb count of 4 per bar or 2 for half a bar, which is what I used in this recipe. Any other that you use—Quest or Elevation brands—will vary.
I have an Elevation bar that is 2 net carbs for the whole bar (High Protein Bar; Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough). They are only found at Aldi so may or may not be available to you.
The recipe for Dirty Keto Low Carb Trail Mix is changeable.
Add pork rinds, different nuts (watch carb counts; cashews and pistachios are higher carbs than almonds, pecans, walnuts or macadamia nuts), pumpkin seeds or Lily’s chips for variety.
This will change the macros for the recipe but it is not difficult to figure it out.
Add the recipe into a tracker app like My Fitness Pal or simply add all of the carbs in what you added and divide it by how many servings you will get out of it.
This recipe makes about 2 ½ cups, so 5 half cup servings.
You don’t even need to measure how much it makes. Just divide it into however servings you want and then do the same with the numbers you added up.
