Toasted Coconut Trail Mix Bites

 Trail mix is a year-round favourite that can be a great source of protein and heart-healthy fats. “Whip up a batch of these bite-size fruit and nut treats to keep in your fridge for a quick and satisfying car snack before the kids’ soccer game,” says Samara Foisy, registered dietitian for President’s Choice. “It’s easy to go over our recommended daily value of sodium, so I’ve chosen a trail mix with no salt added.”

Soft dates work best in this recipe, but don’t worry if your dates are on the firmer side — simply soak in a bowl of hot water for about 30 minutes to soften before using.
