Ingredient Tips - I like using raw, unsalted nuts to keep this trail mix low salt. If you'd like a little salt in this mix, I'd recommend adding one roasted, salted nut and keeping the other raw.

Diet/Allergy Alternatives - If you'd like this recipe to have no added sugar, leave out the dark chocolate chips.
