Preparation at Home:

In a bowl, combine flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, salt, and powdered milk. Thoroughly mix, then add chocolate chips and nuts and mix again. Place 1⁄2 cup of mixture into each of 6 ziplock quart-size freezer bags.

Preparation on the trail:

To make 1 serving, heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a pan at low heat. Add a second teaspoon of oil and 2 tablespoons of water to 1 bag of brownie mix. Knead the mixture in the bag. Once the pan is hot, scoop small, spoon-size mounds into the pan or cut a corner from the bag and squeeze out small brownie batter blobs. Cook until the bottoms are browned and the tops are no longer shiny. Flip, flatten, and brown the other sides.


Carob chips can be substituted for the chocolate chips.
