Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and even more important when you are out on the trail to get a successful start to logging all those miles you set out to hike. Oatmeal is a delicious was to start the day off, and when you add Chocolate and bananas into the Mix, you just can’t go wrong.
What you need:
- 1/3 cup instant oatmeal
- 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 Tbsp powdered milk
- 2 tsp brown sugar
- 1/4 cup freeze-dried bananas
- Chocolate cookies, crumbled (optional)
- Makes 1 serving
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.
