Chunky Monkey Trail Mix Recipe


  • 2 1/4 cup raw walnuts (chopped)
  • 1 cup raw cashews halves (or other nut of choice. Almonds work too)
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (be sure to get big FLAKES not shredded)
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp butter (cut in slices) or at room temp 4-5 tbsp coconut oil to make vegan
  • 1 tsp vanilla or butter extract
  • 2 cup unsweetened banana chips or dried banana slices
  • 2/3 -3/4 cup dark chocolate chips or paleo fudge chunks (we used Enjoy life foods brand)
  • parchment paper


  1. Place your nuts, coconut, sugar, vanilla, and butter (slices) or coconut oil in crock pot. Mix together and place on high for 45- 60 minutes. Stir a few times checking to make sure coconut flakes do not burn. NOTE -Reduce to low after 45 minutes if flakes are cooking faster or browning.
  2. Then turn to low for the next 20-30 minutes.
  3. Remove and place crock pot contents on parchment paper to dry out.
  4. Add in your banana chips and chocolate chips and mix together.
  5. OPTION II cooking banana chips You can add in your unsweetened banana chips to cook with the nuts/coconut, instead of adding later. But you will need to stir often and cook only 45 minutes.
  6. Store in air tight container or ziplock bag.
