Looking for ideas for satisfying backpacking breakfasts?
Then here you go! When I’m out backpacking, I like to have a breakfast that serves two purposes. One, it needs to be nutritious to give me the energy I need for hiking. And two, it needs to be delicious enough to coax me out of my cozy sleeping bag and tent! While I always start my day with a hot coffee (Starbucks VIA Caffe Mochais my new favorite!), I also like to eat a filling but quick backpacking breakfast to really get me going. Sure, a pop tart or Clif bar will do in a pinch, but I prefer to start my day with some real food. Here are 20 of my favorite recipes for delicious and nutritious backpacking breakfasts that are both yummy and filling enough to satisfy even the most ravenous hikers in your group. Your backpacking breakfasts will never be the same!
