Peanut Butter Protein Snack Mix

  • Yield 10 cups

Chock full of crunchy goodness, this sweet-and-salty snack mix is also a great source of protein.



3 cups pretzel
1 cup pecan halves
4 cups air-popped popcorn
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/4 cup (or 1 rounded scoop) vanilla whey protein powder


  1. Combine pretzels, pecans, popcorn and cranberries in a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, microwave peanut butter for about 15 seconds or until warm and soft.
  3. Add peanut butter to pretzel mixture and gently toss to combine. This may take a few minutes and everything may not be completely coated, but do your best.
  4. Into a large zip lock bag, add powdered sugar and protein powder. Close the bag and shake to combine.
  5. Add the snack mix to the zip lock bag, close the bag, and shake to coat completely.
