Crunchy, Salty, Sweet and Low-calorie Snack Mix

Introduction: Crunchy, Salty, Sweet and Low-calorie Snack Mix

This snack mix is packed with fiber and protein and only 165 calories per bag!  It is portable, satisfying, filling and has minimal sugar, while still getting to enjoy some dark chocolate with dried fruit. Everything can be bought from the bulk section, which also makes this super cost effective since only 1 portion of each ingredient is divided amongst 5 bags at a time. Yields a total of 5 servings so it's ready to go- I use it as a snack for hiking, lunches and to keep in my backpack for long days at school or in between classes.


You will need:

1 bag Orville smart pop single serve
3/4 cup whole grain O cereal or honey nut cherrios (go for cereal lower in sugar)
25 dry roasted or raw almonds (unsalted)
20 dry roasted or raw cashews (unsalted)
1/4 cup dried cranberries
3 tbsp dark chocolate chips

Pop the popcorn and let cool. Divide everything into fifths amongst 5 snack bags. Enjoy!
