Ultralight Joe’s Moose Goo is a backpacker’s dream: calorie loaded gooey goodness is a squeeze tube. I tried out various versions of the original recipe to find the most palatable spread to keep me fueled on the trail. My friend Bobbi Lance has created her own high energy trail goo inspired by Samoa Girl Scout Cookies! This may be very dangerous for you to have in your house as it is so easy to eat by the spoonful. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Girl Scout Goo Recipe
16 oz coconut butter at room temp
7 oz coconut fat (coconut oil)
½-1 cup brown sugar
6 oz mini chocolate chips
2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
8 oz no refrigeration caramel ice cream topping
½ teaspoon salt
Mix all ingredients together, and store in squeeze tube or plastic container with a screw top lid.
Store unrefrigerated, and enjoy on tortillas, pancakes, bread, granola bars, fruit, as a cookie spread or just by the spoonful. This stuff packs a wallop for calories at 140 calories per tablespoon.
This recipe was contributed by Bobbi Lance, owner and visionary of Yuzu Studios: a California based food photography company. She is also a passionate hiker, currently prepping meals for a thru hike of the John Muir Trail!
