I’ll collect recipes for breakfasts/lunches/snacks here. I focus mainly on Mountain Man’s breakfasts and dinners.
It’s still cool in the mountains, so he’s been eating oatmeal for breakfast:
1/2 c oatmeal (I recently increased this to 2/3 since Mountain Man has been feeling hungry)
1 tablespoon flax seed meal (provides fatty acids/calories)
1 tablespoon milk powder (cow or coconut)
1 teaspoon sugar (you may want to increase this)
To this I add dry fruit, nuts and spices. So far he likes apple cinnamon and strawberry coconut.
Oatmeal can be made by adding hot water in the morning, or cold water the night before.
Cheerios Protein Bars:
I follow this recipe , but half it and add a scoop of protein powder. There is something to be said for the many variations that can be made on the rice krispy treat – they are comforting and trail-hardy.
“Precipice” Bars AKA HICA Bars (High Calorie and Addicting)
2 c rolled oats
2 c peanut butter
2.5 c nuts and/or dried fruit (I used sunflowers seeds and chopped almonds)
2.5 c chocolate chips
1 can condensed milk
2 tbsp vanilla extract
1.5 c protein powder (I used hemp)
1 c all purpose flour
Combine ingredients, press firmly into a pan lined with aluminum foil, and bake 325F for 15 minutes. Let cool and slice into bars. Dehydrate if you plan to keep them longer than a few weeks. Big batch!
