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.
