About The Ingredients

Nuts are high in potassium, a mineral that is responsible for keeping blood pressure balanced in a person with healthy kidneys. So, I used a combination of unsalted peanuts, pecans, and walnuts. Peanuts are loaded with niacin, a vitamin that dilates your veins and can really get your blood flowing. In addition to the health benefits of pecans, I like them because, like walnuts, they contribute a pleasant easy-to-chew taste and texture to this keto trail mix recipe.

Dark chocolate is made from the seed of a cacao fruit and is high in magnesium. White chocolate is the creamy off-white chocolate-scented oil that cover the seeds of a cacao fruit. Both the sugar-free dark chocolate (cacao powder) and the sugar-free white chocolate (edible cocoa butter) are both self-preserving. Therefore, they are usually always sodium-free and delicious in there own unique ways. The Lily’s Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Chips have a semi-sweet and mildly bitter taste while the Baked Believe Sugar-Free White Chocolate Chips are more sweet than anything else. So, to me, they make the perfect combination of bittersweet.

And lastly, assuming that unsweetened coconut flakes would be sodium-free, I added about one tablespoon of coconut flakes. Well, I later discovered that it has 5 milligrams of sodium per two tablespoons. So, we’ll just call this an “optional” ingredient. With that said, the coconut flakes contribute a nice flavor to this homemade keto trail mix recipe that you may find well-worth the trivial 2.5 milligrams of sodium it adds. So, you can decide for yourself.
