You don’t always need a fancy gadget to tell you how hot or cold it is. During the spring and summer months, you can calculate the temperature by listening to a chirping cricket. Simply count the number of chirps you hear in 14 seconds. Then, add 40 to that number to find out the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit.
If you're sitting near the campfire late at night contemplating camping facts like above, you may want to add the recipe below for the morning.
3 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup oat bran (optional)
pinch sea salt
1 T oil of choice or butter
1/4 cup pure pancake syrup
Coat a large sheet of tin foil generously with oil cooking spray and set aside ensuring it is completely covered, including the edges.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, oat bran, cinnamon, sea salt and mix well. Add the oil of choice (if using coconut, make sure it's melted) and maple syrup and stir until fully incorporated.
Lay the mixture in the center part of the tin foil, preferably in a single layer, ensuring there is sufficient room to around the edges to wrap.
Wrap the granola up without any room for air- We don't want steamed granola here. Lay the foil patch on the heated stone/coal and allow to heat for 5-10 minutes. Using tongs, shake the foil pack roughly every 2-3 minutes to avoid sticking.
Remove and carefully open and allow to cool for 5 minutes. If you want melted chocolate and marshmallows, add now and mix through and allow to cool.
