Introduction We hope that you find the following recipes as starting point from which to build a completely customized repertoire for your troop. Some of these recipes are traditional scouting recipes, and some are new favorites. Some contain nuts, gluten, carbs, and other allergens. Make changes. Encourage safe exploration. Involve everyone. Please, find what works for your girls! Providing food that is of four key parameters: appropriate portion size, pleasing taste, proper nutrition, and simple preparation, will keep your troop’s spirits elevated while they work, volunteer, and play! Bon Appétit!

GORP “Good Old Raisins and Peanuts”

Start with a carbohydrate (For fast fuel): Flavored Cheerios Frosted mini-wheats Chex Mini-pretzels Goldfish Add some protein (So it lasts): Pumpkin Seeds Sunflower Seeds Peanuts Cashews Add something sweet (Yummy!): Dried fruit MnMs Peanut butter chips Shredded coconut Fruit Gummies Banana chips Mix your choices together in a large bowl. Hand each girl a zipper baggie and write her name on it. Scoop some into each bag. Enjoy throughout the day. Author’s Note: I have fond memories of making GORP when I was a Girl Scout. Back then, we didn’t have this magical “Trail Mix” stuff that you could buy, so we made our own. When I was a Brownie, it was just three things: Cheerios, Raisins, and Peanuts. But these days you can make it with just about anything the girls enjoy. It can be a treat or a meal. Be aware that on hot days, chocolate will melt. Remind girls to always get their bags in the trash. I try to use items without high fructose corn syrup.
