Granola is a delicious snack food for campers. It can be made ahead of time and put in sealed plastic bags for the trip. It can be customized to the taste preferences of your family and you can make it to fit your budget as well. You can even add ingredients that increase the nutritional value of the granola without anyone even knowing. Granola is good as a snack, combined with yogurt as a parfait, or even eaten as a breakfast cereal. It’s a sweet and crunchy way to get your daily grains in and kids go crazy for it. Some people like it as a crumble and others press it into bars. Both ways are delicious and nutritious, to.
The basic recipe is to combine grains, dried fruits, nuts, seeds, sweeteners, and spices in a bowl. Spread the mix on a baking sheet and put it in the oven at 250 degrees for an hour. You can then turn off the oven and leave the sheet of granola in the oven for the night. This will give you a nice crunchy texture by the time you take it out in the morning. You can then package it up for you camping trip and you’re armed with a tasty addition to your breakfast yogurt or a healthy snack on the road.
You can combine oats, flaxseed meal, dried fruit of any kind, maple syrup, brown sugar, almonds, cashews, peanuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, or any favorites you want to add.
