Gorp Breakfast Bars

posted in: Camp Food & Recipes | 0

I have made these bars for hiking- and they are one of my favorite snacks!  So I wanted to share this recipe because it’s great for camping as well.   These a bit messy in hot weather- but will keep your family going throughout the day.

This recipe is from one of my hiking books that I’ve had for years.

2 12-oz pkgs. semisweet chocolate chips

2 8-oz pkgs. butterscotch chips

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup chopped dates

1/2 cup chopped dried apricots (or raisins)

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/2 cup chopped cashews

1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal

1/2 cup muesli

1/2 cup wheat germ


Start by melting the chips in a double boiler and then add the honey. Next, pour over the remaining ingredients in a large bowl.  Pour the mixture onto a greased cookie sheet so it can cool.  Then-cut or break the bars into hand-size pieces.  You can then cover with  plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.

Let me know what you think if you do try this recipe!  I would love to hear what you like or don’t like about these bars.


Happy Camping!
