A Heart-Healthy Desserts & Snacks Recipe
It may take some sleuthing at your local natural foods store to find all the ingredients for this trail mix, but it's well worth the effort. On days when I'm busy seeing patients, I've been known to eat a large helping of this mix as my lunch. Make sure to choose organic nuts and seeds whenever they're available.
- Dry-roasted soybeans
- Dried apples
- Dried cranberries
- Pumpkin seeds
- Sunflower seeds
Mix ingredients together in roughly equal proportions and store in an airtight container. Use within a month, because the oils in nuts can go rancid. One serving equals 2 ounces.
