A savory mix of roasted nuts with sun-dried tomatoes and Italian seasonings, this Pizza Trail Mix is the ultimate snack. Vegan, gluten-free and paleo-friendly.

Hi from Brooklyn. Isaac and I are spending the weekend here to celebrate our birthdays — we’re staying with a friend and have a bunch of fun stuff planned. If you want to follow along, I’ll be sharing our adventures on Snap and Insta. (I’m eatingbirdfood on both.)

In the meantime, I have one last trail mix recipe for you to finish off Trail Mix Week. And you better believe I saved the best for last.

SEE HOW EASY THIS PIZZA TRAIL MIX IS TO MAKE:

I actually didn’t have plans to make a pizza trail mix originally, but while whipping up the peanut butter and jelly trail mix recipe I spotted the bag of sun-dried tomatoes in the pantry and the idea immediately came to me. I’ve never seen sun-dried tomatoes used in trail mix, but I was pretty sure they would work well for a savory mix.

With the idea for a savory mix in mind, I searched my spice cabinet and was quickly drawn to spices and herbs you typically find on pizza like garlic, onion, oregano, basil and thyme. I started with those then added nutritional yeast. The nutritional yeast is critical — it gives the mix a cheesy flavor and really makes it taste like pizza! If you’re new to nutritional yeast, check out my notes about what it is and where to buy it on my Garlicky Kale Salad post.

I like pizza but I’m not usually drawn to pizza flavored things so I was expecting to like this mix, but wasn’t expecting it to be one my absolute favorites. Turns out, I was wrong. I can’t get enough of this savory mix. Everyone who’s tried it has really liked it as well. My trusty trail mix taste-tester, Alyssa, said this one was her favorite as well!

So there ya have it, if you only try one of the mixes from Trail Mix Week, I highly recommend trying this one. You won’t regret it.

  1. Just made this and am currently (happily) burning my tongue eating them directly off the baking stone. So good! I bought pizza cashews from fresh market and didn’t like them, so I was apprehensive. These blow those out of the water! I’m sure they’ll be even better if I would let them cool before I finish them. ?

    • Hi Jeanette. Almost all the recipes I post are 21 Day Fix friendly, but unfortunately I don’t have the container breakdown posted for them. That said, I hope you’ll still try some of them. 🙂

  2. I am OBSESSED with this recipe. Made it immediately after you posted, about to make more tonight! It’s my new favorite snack 🙂

  3. This is so so so good! I used a random mix of nuts and didn’t use the sundried tomatoes (I couldn’t tell from the recipe but it looked like you use the dried ones? I only had them in oil), but this is so tasty! I’ve got a big jar of it on my desk for snacking on this week!

    Might try the cajun mix next!
