Homemade Trail Mix For Diabetics

I originally tossed this homemade trail mix for diabetics together to eat if the hurricane knocked out the electricity for a few days. However, it turned out to be one of my diabetic road trip snacks. Before leaving, I shared containers of this homemade trail mix for diabetics with family members that are reversing type 2 diabetes without medication. I did so because many post-disaster food kits often contain a lot of high carb foods that will elevate blood sugar levels significantly. So, this keto trail mix is a healthy little must-have for some people who are not just on a low carb diet to lose weight.

So, let’s get to the simple recipe. You can find and use a lot more of our diabetic recipes with our diabetic meal planner.

At the time of this post, some of the Lily’s sugar-free chips were not available online, but they have since been added. Bake Believe is another really good sugar-free chips alternative that I often find at my local grocery store. So, if you are not at home right now, you can check the local store for some of these ingredients.

A combination of mostly unsalted nuts were used to keep this keto trail mix blend healthy enough to eat all day if needed. I added one cup of salted peanuts just to give it that nice sweet and salty taste that a typical trail mix might have. Nuts are all very high in potassium, a macromineral that lowers blood pressure levels in a person with healthy kidneys. So, this homemade trail mix for diabetics may actually lower your blood pressure too. The sugar free butterscotch chips and sugar free white chocolate chips have a wonderful taste and contain a minimal amount of sodium (if any). You can check out our online keto store for more diabetic friendly snack ideas. I hope you all enjoy making and eating this homemade trail mix for diabetics.

    • Thanks for asking this question! I am sure that others may also be wondering about the calorie versus kilocalorie. 1 kilocalorie equals 1 calorie in nutrition….so, there is no need to convert them. Nuts are a very nutrient rich food, so a little can go a long way with regard to our calorie needs. So, 1/16 of the recipe is about 514 calories. I eat this trail mix when I am having an extremely active day or sometimes as a meal replacement. If eating as a snack to curb your appetite, about 1/4 of a cup should do it. Have you seen the other low carb (diabetic) trail mix recipes? They are higher in protein and lower in calories, so you can snack a bit more on those if wanted.
