Not long ago, we went to visit Glacier National Park in Montana and it was spectacular. The day we were heading out to Many Glaciers on the east side of the park, we stopped by this bakery in East Glacier for a bite to eat. If you’re in that area it’s worth a visit. They had a hiking bar that was so good it inspired me to make my own.

You can make this all different ways, but the basics are always the same with dried fruit, nuts, a syrup, a nut butter, and oats. I didn’t want to have to buy 10 bags of different nuts and dried fruit, so I went to Trader Joe’s and bought a back of mixed nuts and a bag of dried fruit (dried cherry, strawberry, and blueberry is good!).
