Backpack Snacks For Hitting The Trails

(NC) - Instead of taking store-bought energy bars on your next hike - try these. They taste great, transport beautifully without crumbling and are a lot less expensive when you make them yourself.

  • 2 cups granola 500 mL
  • 1/3 cup chopped peanuts 75 mL

  • 1/4 cup wheat germ or ground flax 50mL
  • 2 tbsp each pumpkin seeds and shredded coconut 30 mL
  • 1/2 cup honey 125 mL
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter 125 mL


In a large bowl, stir granola with peanuts, cranberries, raisins, wheat germ, pumpkin seeds and coconut. In a small saucepan bring honey to the boil. Boil vigorously for approximately 30 seconds then whisk in peanut butter. Add to granola mixture and stir to combine.
