Nothing like greeting the 6 o’clock sun with some hearty, sweet granola.
We enjoy making some of our own camping food from scratch. There is such a satisfaction in pulling out your own bag of home-baked goodness. We mixed up a pile of granola for our recent Canadian trip. Yes, we could have done the power bar thing, and we did consider them briefly. But isn’t homemade so much better? We’ve got a tried and true granola recipe that is hearty, chewy and flavorful. Enjoy.
