  • ⅓ cup (46 g)
    roasted unsalted almonds, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp (30 g)
  • 2 Tbsp (18 g)
  • 2 Tbsp (10 g)
    unsweetened toasted coconut flakes
  • 2 tsp (4 g)
    dried goji berries (optional)


  1. Line an 8 x 8 inch (21 x 21 cm) baking dish with parchment paper. Melt the chocolate in a microwave or on the stove, using a double boiler.
  2. Pour half of the melted chocolate into the dish and spread it out into an even layer. Sprinkle about half of the almonds, cranberries, and pumpkin seeds over top.
  3. Drizzle the remaining half of the chocolate over top, "sandwiching" the almonds and cranberries in the middle of the chocolate layers, using a rubber spatula to even out the top.
  4. Sprinkle the top with the remaining ingredients. Place in the fridge or freezer for 10 - 20 minutes to harden.
  5. Cut into pieces, and enjoy!

So happy that the trail mix bars were enjoyed, Aakanksha ☺️

This turned out perfectly in a small baking dish. I didn’t have any nuts, so I just used a seed mix & dried fruit mix. I also used semisweet chocolate chips as I dislike dark chocolate

Which Dark Chocolate do you use for this recipe?

PUL Team - April 25, 2023, 2:45 a.m.

Hey Ekta, we tend to use higher quality dark chocolate around 70%. The higher the percentage the more bitter the taste tends to be. Any dark chocolate you enjoy and is accessible will do 😃

This recipe is definitely going to become a go-to for me! I used pistachios in place of pumpkin seeds and it turned out wonderful.

A lovely substitution, Anne, thank you!

I tried this recipe. It was so quick to make. Tasted so heavenly !! I was first thinking about eyeballing the quantity of nuts and seeds but good that I followed the exact proportion because it was perfect.
Thank you for this.

Lovely to hear, Kirandeep! So glad the bars were enjoyed 🤗
