Instant Oatmeal – Classic Hiking Porridge

This is my most common hiking breakfast as it is fast and easy – and not much dishes to do afterwards. If you stay all day at the camp site or fishing, 70 g oatmeal is most likely enough. To begin longer walks, I’d recommend 100g or some quinoa based porridges.

Ingredients for two:

  • 70-100 g  oatmeal (1 min cooking time)
  • 10 g soya flour or buck wheat bran (c. 1 T.)
  • 15 g variety of seeds (eg. hamp, cia, sunflour or pumpkin seeds)
  • 30 g dry berries or fruit (or berry cup-a-soup)
  • 15 g butter, if you have some (c. 1 T.)
  • some salt
  • and 18 g dry milk, if you have some (c. 2 T.)

Weight: 125-188 g
Water: 5-7 dl (+ 1-4 dl to make milk or berry soup)

How-to-make it:

  1. Devide the porridge ingredients on two plates. Pour boiling water (2,5-3,5 dl per plate) over it and stir well. Add butter.
  2. Serve the porridge with milk or berry soup: Mix dry milk with 2 dl of cold clean water. OR mix the cup-a-soup with 1-2 dl boiling water and make jam or soup with the porridge.
  3. Enjoy your porridge before it gets cold.
