  1. At home before your trip, make the oatmeal base. Start by cooking out the fat from 3 slices of bacon in a 1 quart saucepan on Medium. When they bacon has gone crispy, remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add raw oatmeal to the hot bacon fat, and stir to coat. Toast the oatmeal in the pan for 1-2 minutes. When it starts to smell like granola and bacon, add the Almond Milk and a big pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Then, turn down to a gentle simmer and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Ladle it into some tupperware and keep it in the fridge until your ready to go!
  1. Reheat oatmeal with extra Almond Milk (or 2%) until desired consistency is reached. This is certainly not an exact science, and if you want it a bit looser, add some more milk. You can easily prepare all of the oatmeal bar items except the eggs at home and just put them out on the table straight out of the cooler. Of course, if you'd like you can prepare them fresh.
