3 Healthy and Easy Oatmeal Recipes for Backpacking

On my YouTube channel, I posted a poll asking everyone what they liked to eat for breakfast in the backcountry.

Oatmeal was the top response.

I totally understand why - it’s light, easy to pack, warm on a cold mountain morning, and doesn’t take long to prepare.

But if you backpack a lot, the store-bought packets and flavors can get boring.

They’re also full of artificial flavors and processed sugar - things I prefer to avoid if possible.

So I hit the bulk section of the grocery store, and then got in my kitchen to experiment with my own oatmeal recipes that were more nutrient dense.

When you’re out hiking, you want an easy backcountry breakfast that tastes good and gives you plenty of energy!
