A delicious high energy snack that packs for weeks without crumbling.

7 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup instant dry milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup softened butter
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup raisins 1 cup molasses
1 cup honey 1 cup water

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In a large bowl, add and stir the ingredients in the order listed. ÊPress the thick batter in a lightly greased 13" x 9" pan. ÊBake for 1 hour at 300 degrees F. ÊReduce oven to 200 degrees F., slightly ajar the oven door, and bake for an additional 8 hours or overnight for the purpose of drying. ÊBefore cooling, cut into 2 inch x 2inch bars (makes approximately 20). Allow to cool for several hours before storing in freezer grade plastic zip lock bags.

Thanks to Duane Stosaker for sharing his recipe. Duane is an avid paddler in the southern California area. He likes to paddle long distances and maintaining his energy on his trips is important. These are Duane's famous "Expedition Bars" that provide the energy for those long days of paddling and have great structural intergrity so they don't go to pieces.
