10 Great Camping Snacks
Ants On a Log1 of 11
As a childhood staple, this is a crowd-pleaser. With a little peanut butter, a handful of raisins and a few stalks of celery you'll be enjoying a great snack in no time.
Trail Mix Cereal Bar2 of 11
Your trail mix bars need to be prepped beforehand, and can easily be taken on the go. While there are hundreds of cereal bar recipes out there, we recommend combining brown sugar, oats, peanut butter, your favorite cereal, dark chocolate pieces and a pinch of salt.
Roasted Nut Mix3 of 11
Turn your less-than-exciting nuts into a great camping snack by roasting them over the fire. Place in a pan and heat them up until they're brown and toasty.
Peanut Butter Stuffed Apples4 of 11
This twist on peanut butter and apples is one to remember. Core your apple and simply stuff the middle with peanut butter. You can add chocolate pieces, too, for a sweet kick.
Fire Roasted Cheese and Cracker Sandwiches5 of 11
Cheese and crackers are a great snack anywhere, but you can't always heat them over an open flame. Place your cheese and cracker sandwiches on a pan and set it on the fire. Flip once and soon you have a tasty and unique snack.
Beef Jerky6 of 11
Easy to pack and even easier to eat, a few pieces of beef jerky are just what the adventurous hiker needs to refuel. This lightweight snack packs protein, but watch for sodium and ingredients such as MSG. Find an all-natural brand that provides protein and healthy fat without all the rest.
Homemade Piglets in a Blanket7 of 11
This simple camping snack is a loved by kids and adults alike. Cut a hot dog into three pieces and wrap in ready-to-cook biscuit dough. You can cook them over the fire on a stick or skewer.
Toasted Pitas and Hummus8 of 11
Before sinking your pita into a big tub of hummus, let it toast over the fire. Place whole pitas on the grate and cut them into smaller pieces for dipping once they've toasted.
Seasonal Fruit Salad9 of 11
Take advantage of seasonal fruit for a summer camping snack. Not only is it fresher, but often times less expensive. Summer fruit options include: cherries, strawberries, watermelon, papaya, blackberries and honeydew.
Homemade Popcorn10 of 11
Bring popcorn kernels, a pot and a lid for this classic camping snack. Put butter or oil in the bottom of your pan, and a small scoop of kernels—you only need to cover the bottom of the pan to yield a full pot of cooked popcorn. Once the popping starts, shake the pan with the lid on for about four minutes until all the kernels stop popping. Top with salt, pepper, cinnamon, or whatever seasoning you prefer.
