I’m still thinking in backpack mode as we’re planning our trip. So, this week I have another DIY recipe that would be great for backpacking, camping, hiking or even just a snack to take to work!
Making your own granola/trail-mix can not only save you money, but it also allows you to control exactly what goes into it. And it’s easy!

2 T honey
2 T coconut oil (optional)
1 cup oats
1 T chia seeds
1/3 cup sliced almonds
1/8 cup cranberries
1/8 cup goji berries (or cranberries)
1/3 cup raw sunflower seeds
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a small saucepan, melt coconut oil and honey on low, just long enough to make it a smooth liquid. Remove from heat and stir in oats, chia seeds and any other small add-in.
Spread granola mixture in a jelly-roll pan, and bake for 5 minutes. Allow to cool.
Break up granola into bite size pieces and put in a quart-size ziplock bag. Add the almonds, berries, sunflower seeds and any additional add-in. Shake well to incorporate.
