Don’t ditch taste just because you’re trekking or backpacking
Making your own backpacking meals is a great option compared to buying expensive freeze-dried or dehydrated meals. Many backpacking and hiking recipes consist of less expensive, basic foods that can be found at most grocery stores, such as dried milk, rice, or pasta.
Here are my favourite 5 trail snacks:
Chocolate Banana Oatmeal
- 1/3 cup instant oatmeal
- 1 tsp Macabella Choc’ Macadamia Spread
- 2 Tbsp powdered milk
- 2 tsp brown sugar
- 1/4 cup bananas
- Chocolate cookies
At home: Combine everything except the cookies into a zip lock bag. If you are bringing the cookies, package them separately.
On the trail: Bring 1 cup of water to a boil, add the oatmeal mix and stir. Simmer until the oatmeal is cooked through. Serve topped with the cookies.
