I make my own granola for my cookless breakfast. I make sure to add in a 
couple different nuts for more protein and some dried fruit for sugar/carb 
boost. I also make my granola with molasses instead of honey, but it makes 
it much darker in color and a little more tart in the taste. But it keeps me 
going until snack time!

I make lots of the granola and freeze it, then have it put in the supply 
boxes and sent, it tastes like I just made it. I don't get tired of it, but 
this is the stuff my mom made and sent me off to school with every day for 4 
years of high school!

As I enjoy a nice hot meal at dinner after hiking! I don't know that I would 
do without that on a daily basis.
