Monthly Morsel: Campfire Oatmeal


As a child I grew up eating plain, old-fashioned oatmeal with brown sugar and milk. Jarrett grew up on instant oatmeal packets, and he still loves stirring up the Maple & Brown Sugar flavor packets when we go camping. But I prefer to make my oatmeal from scratch with wholesome and satisfying mix-ins to jazz things up a bit.

This Apple Nut Campfire Oatmeal is a winning recipe combination: The natural sweetness of the apples takes the place of sugar, and the crunchy nuts, chewy raisins, and flaky coconut add great texture to what was once a boring breakfast. It’s another one of my go-to easy camping recipes that you can prepare over a camp stove, on an RV stove, or over a campfire.
