Campfire S'mores RecipeThe base granola
  1. 3 cups gluten free rolled oats
  2. 1/4 cup gluten free oat bran (I like it for texture- Can sub for rolled oats)
  3. pinch cinnamon
  4. pinch sea salt
  5. 1 T oil of choice or butter
  6. 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (can sub for agave- I didn’t try honey for those non vegan)
Post grilling/foil baking
  1. 1 cup + mini marshmallows (I used vegan mini marshmallows)
  2. 1 cup + dairy free chocolate chips (I used enjoy life mini)
Over the campfire
  1. Coat a large sheet of tin foil generously with oil cooking spray and set aside ensuring it is completely covered, including the edges (this makes it easier to open)
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, oat bran, cinnamon, sea salt and mix well. Add the oil of choice (if using coconut, make sure it’s melted) and maple syrup and stir until fully incorporated.
  3. Lay the mixture in the centre part of the tin foil, preferably in a single layer, ensuring there is sufficient room to around the edges to wrap.
  4. Wrap the granola up without any room for air- We don’t want steamed granola here. Lay the foil patch on the heated stone/coal and allow to heat for 5-10 minutes. Using tongs, shake the foil pack roughly every 2-3 minutes to avoid sticking.
  5. Remove and carefully open and allow to cool for 5 minutes. If you want melted chocolate and marshmallows, add now and mix through and allow to cool.
For the grilled version
  1. Coat a large sheet of tin foil generously with oil cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, oat bran, cinnamon, sea salt and mix well. Add the oil of choice (if using coconut, make sure it’s melted) and maple syrup and stir until fully incorporated.
  3. Lay the mixture in the centre part of the tin foil, preferably in a single layer, ensuring there is sufficient room to around the edges to wrap.
  4. Place tin pouch directly on the grill on medium heat. If possible, stir every 3-4 minutes, or give it a shake (we tried both) and grill the granola for approximately 10-12 minutes.
  5. Remove from grill and be careful when opening pouch and give the granola another stir before allowing it to cool completely.
  6. Add in the marshmallows and chocolate chips.
Notes
  1. Use good quality tin foil- My friend said they have have had bad experiences using the cheap, supermarket brand ones which resulted in zero edible food.
  2. Our stones/coal were around a medium/hot fire pit. For a very hot pit, cook towards the outer edge and cut cooking time by 2-3 minutes.
  3. If there are any openings in the foil package, your granola will be quite soggy/steamed.
  4. If you don’t oil the foil well, your granola will burn.
