The Ultimate Wild Women Scroggin

 

By the Wild Women On Top Team | Experts in hiking adventures for women

Scroggin is an old bushwalking treat that lasts for ages, fills you up, nourishes you, doesn’t require cooking, and rejuvenates you mid-hike. Traditionally, it includes Sultanas, Currants, Raisins, and Other Good Goodies including Nuts!

We like to mix it up a bit, because we're Wild Women and that's the kinda thing we do. Scroggin is often a highlight of adventures, and we put a lot of care into our selection. Here's what you'll find in our scroggin bag.

Nutty: We roast a selection of the following nutty goodies: Brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, almonds, pepitas, cashews, walnuts, hazelnuts, pepitas, sunflower seeds, shaved coconut and granola clusters. You can use any nut or seed you love. Some fun variations: Roast with a drizzle of honey and cinnamon to make sweet, or salt and paprika to add a bit of savoury. 

Fruity: Throw in a mix of medjool dates, caramelised ginger, dark chocolate coated ginger, dried peaches, dried apricots, dried nectarines, cranberries, sultanas, raisins, dried plums and dried mango. You can use any yummy dried fruit you like. 

Sweet: You could add some skittles, jelly snakes or wrapper-free chewy lollies, but remember these don't add nutrition. 

We recommend approx 100g of scroggin per person per day max for a full day of hiking - you don't need it for Trek Training! Remember, it's about quality over quantity - so buy the best quality ingredients you can afford and enjoy every mouthful.
