Servings 1
Prep Time 5 minutes


  • 1 Saucepan
  • 1 Metal or glass mixing bowl
  • 1 cookie sheet, container or muffin tins (see instructions step 5)
  • parchment paper


To make cinnamon white chocolate:

  • 50 g white or blonde chocolate
  • ¼-½ tsp cinnamon

For trail mix:

  • 2 tbsps cashews about 6-8
  • 6 cup banana chips about 10-12
  • 2 tbsps dried young coconut
  • 2-3 strips dried mango, chopped
  • 2 tbsps dried pineapple (recipe includes how to make)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon white chocolate


  • 1.  Combine all ingredients in a bag or container and enjoy!

To make Cinnamon White Chocolate:

  • 1. Chop the chocolate into fine chunks. Set aside.
  • 2. Bring a saucepan of water to a gentle boil. Place the bowl on top of the simmering water. Note: The bowl should not be touching the water - remove some water if necessary.
  • 3. Pour chocolate into the bowl. Over the gently simmering water, heat the chopped chocolate, stirring occasionally, until 3/4 melted. Be careful to not completely melt and overheat.
  • 4. Remove the bowl from the saucepan and stir the chocolate until it is completely melted. Stir in the cinnamon until well combined.
  • 5. Pour mixture into onto parchment lined pan or container (lined muffin tins also work). You want the chocolate to be spread, but not too thin - aim for about ¼" thick.
  • 6. Chill in fridge until hardened (about 30 minutes)
  • 7. Chop chocolate into chunks
  • Note: you will have more chocolate than needed for a single serving of trail mix recipe (50g of chocolate yields about 4 tbsp of chopped chocolate)


  • You can skip making cinnamon white chocolate and just use plain white chocolate, however, the touch of cinnamon is well worth it.
  • Make your own dehydrated fruit if you can! Learn how here: Dehydrating 101 - Learning the Basics
