Even though it was posted over a year ago, I’m still receiving a surprising amount of interest in my Backpacking Food Bars. I’ve refined the recipe a bit and taken it on another trip, so I thought I’d share an update. This new version is significantly more nutritious and tastier than the previous iteration. The purpose of these bars is to provide a concentrated form of nutrition (specifically calories, carbohydrates, and protein) in a low weight, low volume package that’s easy to carry and stable across a wide range of temperature and moisture conditions. The overall cost is lower than most commercially available food bars, and the recipe is infinitely customizable, allowing you to create bars that suite your own palate and nutritional requirements.
