Sweet Treats Made For Trail Running

Whether you run 200 miles with a team of 12 or trail loops through the middle of the night, you need something to power you through all those running miles.

When you’re running a Ragnar Relay, one of the best ways to save room in the van is to bring food that you can share. Same goes for when you’re running Ragnar Trail – having snacks that you can share at camp is key.

This High Protein Power Trail Mix makes sharing easy. Just make up a big batch before, divide into little ziplock bags for your teammates and help them satisfy their Ragnar runger! 😉


2 cups gluten free rolled oats
4 oz unsweetened applesauce
½ cup almond butter
1 30g scoop vegan chocolate protein powder
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup cashews
½ cup raw pumpkin seeds
1 cup dried papaya
½ cup mini dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine oats, applesauce, almond butter and protein powder.

Combine mixture until evenly large clusters form (some will be loose, that’s okay).

Line a baking pan with parchment paper and pour the mixture on, distributing evenly.

Bake for 10 minutes, remove and spoon around so it doesn’t burn then place back in the oven for approximately 10 minutes.

Remove and let cool then combine with almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, papaya and chocolate chips.

Divide into separate zip lock bags and share with your team!
