Camp Breakfast: Overnight Oats

Prepping for breakfast the night before is a prolific idea, isn’t it? We think so, and highly encourage this camp breakfast recipe as an ideal way to start the day. This recipe is simple and very adaptable – take your pick of nuts, seeds, and types of yogurt or milk to bring. With the combination of pistachios, orange, and cardamom you are guaranteed a great start to the day.

This is another awesome recipe brought to you by our friend Sara, an experienced SF chef / waffle guru. Sara is a firm believer that a little prep work before camping goes a long way, giving you more time to hang out by the morning fire and enjoy one (or two) cups of coffee.
