A dessert lover’s dream! This Chunky Monkey Trail Mix is the perfect combo of roasted almonds, toasted coconut, peanut butter chips, chocolate chunks and banana.
Are you tired of trail mix recipes yet? Hopefully not because the party is still going strong and I have a feeling you’re going to go BANANAS for today’s mix.
It literally has so much deliciousness packed into it — from crunchy roasted almonds and toasted coconut to peanut butter and banana chips to melty chocolate chunks. Hello sweet tooth satisfying!
And because the chocolate and peanut butter chips melt a little bit when combined with the slightly warm roasted almonds and coconut, the mix sticks together and creates perfectly snack-able bitesize chunks.
I don’t know about you, but anytime I get a big chunk — whether it’s in granola or chunky trail mix — it’s like winning the snack lottery.
Let’s just say that this mix lives up to the Chunky Monkey name in more ways than one! It’s one of my favorites, and I think you’re going to love it as well.

Chunky Monkey Trail Mix
- 1/2 cup raw almonds
- 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1/4 cup banana chips
- 1/4 cup peanut butter chips
- 1/4 cup chocolate chunks or chocolate chips
- Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Place almonds and coconut on a baking sheet and roast for about 10 minutes.
- Remove from oven, allow the almonds and coconut to cool a bit and then place in a large mixing bowl. Add in banana chips, peanut butter chips and chocolate chunks. Give the mixture a stir. If the nuts are still a little warm the chocolate and peanut butter will melt and create chunks of trail mix.
- Pour mixture out onto parchment paper and place in the fridge to set up. Remove from fridge and enjoy. Store any leftovers in an airtight container.

This looks interesting, but I’ve never heard of peanut butter chips. I can buy some online made by Reese, but they contain some pretty gross ingredients. Can I substitute peanuts?
Hi Tony! Great question — so I use the Sunspire brand for the peanut chips. They definitely have better ingredients. (https://www.sunspire.com/en/products/peanut-butter-chips) But yes, you can definitely sub peanuts instead.
how many days can this last stored at room temp?
Hey Maggie – I’d say about 5 days stored in an airtight container. You can also store it in the fridge to keep it fresher longer. 🙂
