Easy Banana Chocolate Trail Mix

Also known at the funky-monkey, banana grand slam, George’s Go To, or Planet of the Snacks – try this practically healthy trail mix!


  • Bowl to mix in
  • Measuring cups


  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup banana chips 
  • 1 cup toasted coconut ribbons (you can toast your own if necessary, see endnotes)  
  • ½ cup dried cranberries 
  • ½ cup dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chunks


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Place the walnuts, pecans, and cashews on a baking sheet and toast them in your oven for 6-8 minutes, or until they are lightly browned and smell fragrant. Remove them from the oven and let them cool completely.
  3. Once the baking sheet is cool, add all the other ingredients and mix them together. Store in a sealed bag.



  • If your coconut is not toasted, place it on a separate baking sheet and toast it in the oven for 4-5 minutes. Coconut will toast faster and burn easier than the nuts so keep a close eye on it.
