Healthy, Easy Camping Breakfast Ideas

Sure, you could rip open the white-flour pancake mix and make batches of syrup-soaked flapjacks for everyone in camp. They’re fast, easy and familiar—but they burn fast when you’re on the trail. Why not make something equally delicious that does your body a favor? The following camping breakfast ideas will steadily fuel hours of adventures instead of leaving you bonking on empty.

Breakfast Grains Pancakes

20 mins

These crisp-edged, hearty beauties are made with our Organic Breakfast Grains, a 100% whole-grain blend of buckwheat, barley and oats—no artificial ingredients or added sugars. With nutrition this solid, even pouring on some honey or maple syrup won’t crater you later.

Tip: Mix the dry ingredients ahead of time, at home, for fast pancakes in camp.

We load these make-ahead camping breakfast burritos with spicy scrambled eggs, “refried” black beans, crispy potatoes, tomato salsa and hunks of sausage (our Lightly Smoked Venison Links are outstanding here).

Tip: Make the burritos ahead, then toast them in a skillet for a few minutes in camp.

10 mins

One of our favorite breakfast ideas for camping, these creamy, silky grains take just minutes to mix up the night before. Although they taste decadent, they’re packed with good-for-you yogurt, 100% whole grains, fruits and nuts.

Tip: Overnight Breakfast Grains are a great use for empty nut-butter jars.
