Are you allergic to peanuts or any nuts? Are you feeling uninspired about camping food? I’ve got you covered with an amazing list of nut free camping food that will get you excited to eat!
Last week, I went camping with a small group of individuals. Most camping lists include a lot of granola, peanut butter, and other things that have tree nuts in them. Luckily, my friend has had many years of experience figuring out what he can eat. We were able to have plenty of delicious food and it didn’t feel like we were missing out.
I have created a list of foods that are not only nut free, but are also great foods for camping. When going camping it’s important to find items that are non-perishable and that are easy to cook over a fire. Below is a comprehensive list of items that are great fuel and are nut free.
