My son (11) and I are looking for a recipe for oatmeal/whey protein cookies that we can take backpacking.

This would be for the summer, near Olympia, WA, not too hot in the summer.

I found lots of oatmeal protein cookie recipes on the web, but I cannot tell if those would be good for summer backpacking.

I need something that is easy to make (busy single dad here), will not melt if it is 85F outside, can last for 2 weeks with no fridge, and can provide protein and fiber and calories (mostly fat, some sugar ok).

Thanks.

best,
Mac

The challenge here is spoilage, especially if there's much fat. Generally for something to last 2 weeks with 85° temperatures, you need really dry cookies (more like a cracker) with minimal fat or you risk them molding or the fat turning rancid.

Google is your friend here. "backpacking cookies" yielded the following promising links:
-- https://www.backpacker.com/news-and-events/trail-chef-the-great-trail-cookie-debate
-- https://www.backpacker.com/skills/15-healthy-delicious-homemade-snacks-for-hiking
-- https://backpackinglight.com/forums/topic/107909/

Tons more if these don't work for you.

Yes, I looked at the web using duckduckgo.

I know that there are hundreds of recipes for "backpacking" cookies.

I posted a question here because I was looking for something particular:
- oatmeal
- whey powder

Maybe someone here has a recipe along those lines.

Thanks.

Try the google string “whey protein oatmeal cookies”. I got a bunch of recipes with that; this is the first one I saw. Seems to fit your criteria, including no sugar.
