Breakfast is the day's most important meal, especially when engaging in intense activities like hiking. If you're an outdoor enthusiast looking for breakfast options for your next camping or backpacking trip, these ideas are for you!

We've compiled some favourite camping breakfast ideas that are quick, simple, and avoid single-use plastics.

No-Cook Backpacking Breakfasts
Instant Oatmeal
Warm, hearty, and nutritious, instant oatmeal is a great camping breakfast. Add hot water to the durbl reusable silicone bag, stir, and let it cool. Enhance with maple syrup, dried fruit, nuts, or other available toppings, and eat directly from the ziplock bag!

Yogurt and Granola
Check out our homemade granola recipe, free of artificial sweeteners and refined sugar and made with almonds, pumpkin seeds, and flaxseeds. Enjoy it alone or on Greek yoghurt for a protein boost.

Trail Mix
Trail mix is the ultimate off-road food, infinitely customizable and perfect for quick nutrition. It's also an excellent topping for instant oatmeal or yoghurt. Store it in vacuum seal bags to keep it fresh longer.

Instant Coffee
No breakfast is complete without coffee! While you might not have your usual coffee setup, look for instant coffee in paper packaging instead of plastic for an eco-friendly option.

Peanut Butter Energy Bars
Easy to make on the go or in advance, energy bars packed with fibre-rich ingredients like flaxseed meal and chia seeds are perfect. Store them in durbl eusable new set bags for a quick and delicious breakfast.
