While you are out on a trail you need energy! Particularly, on a long hike you don’t want to be left feeling sluggish. I have a few easy to carry snack suggestions that I wouldn’t be caught without while on a trail.
One of my favorite trail snacks are protein cookies. I adapted my own recipe for protein cookies after a much loved double chocolate chip cookie recipe. They’re easy, and they’re filling, and they’re fantastic! I will always have a couple in my backpack to keep me energized for my adventures.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cookies
1 Cup Peanut Butter
1 Cup Protein Powder- I used Chocolate
2 Cups oats
1 ripe banana
¼ cup chia seeds
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup coconut
½ – 1 Cup chocolate chips
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 Minutes
Make approximately two dozen cookies
