We admit it...we love pancakes.  Over the years, we have come up with so many ways to make pancakes healthier that it's become a challenge to see how many nutritious foods we can get stuffed into one pancake.  We tend to do gluten free (GF) pancakes, using a little flour as possible, but this one has a special twist with added coconut flour and hemp seeds.

Breakfast is an essential part of starting any day, but especially a backcountry hunting or travel trip.  Ryan's favorite food is an oatmeal concoction that he's labeled Mountain Mush.  It's full of healthy carbs, fats, and protein, and has calories to fuel any long day of hiking.
