Nuts & Bolts Trail Mix

Nuts & Bolts Trail Mix

February 24, 2017

This is a great recipe for the Trail or exploring in the 4WD. It was a treat for us growing up, when we went to granny and grandpa's house and we used to wash it down with a glass of lemonade. 
It's dead simple, mix all the dry ingredients together then mix in oil, put into a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for 15 minutes stirring every five minutes until nice and crisp. Delicious!
There are so many spins on this recipe we would love to hear yours.

290g Nutri Grain
375g salted peanuts
1 pack French onion soup mix
1 pack chicken soup mix (optional)
1 tablespoon curry powder
1/2 packet Campers Pantry Peas lightweight green goodness
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 handful sultanas
Step 1. In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients
Step 2. Heat the oil (we used the microwave 1 min) and pour into dry mix stirring thoroughly until even consistency
Step 3. Spread onto baking try lined with baking paper
Step 4. Bake for 15-20 minutes on 180C stirring every 5 minutes
*Keep in airtight jars and try not to finish them with a beer on a Friday arvo - save some for the trail...

One of the biggest considerations when hiking is pack weight and how to minimise it. We buy gear based on weight, packability, durability, and functionality - does it do what we need it to do?
