Protein Power Bars

When you’re active outdoors, sometimes you need a lightweight snack to curb your hunger and give you energy. These protein power bars are great for that. I like these for the savoury edge that the tahini provides: sometimes energy bars can be too sweet. No bake and easy to make!

Damper: such a classic Aussie camping recipe and what better way to do it than on a campfire. It’s so cheap, easy, tasty and versatile. I love having it with some fried eggs, smoky cheddar and relish, but it’s always delightful to pair with golden syrup- a la Primary School camp.
