Moose Goo Four Different Ways

A while back I stumbled upon Ultralight Joe’s Moose Goo recipe and finally decided to give it a try.

I made four different kinds of “Moose Goo”. The original recipe is as follows (from Ultralight Joe):

  • 2 parts honey
  • 2 parts corn flour (NOT corn meal!)
  • 1 part peanut butter (preservative-laden)
  • Mix thoroughly, will take some time.
  • Pack into Coghlan’s Squeeze Tube (REI, Campmor, etc), or in cold weather wrap in wax paper.

Single Squeeze Tube Proportions (2-3 lunches w/ large tortillas):

  • 8 tbsp honey
  • 8 tbsp corn flour
  • 4 tbsp peanut butter

Per tube:

  • 1320 calories
  • 172g carbs (70 simple, 102 complex)
  • 24g protein
  • 38g fat (That’s a high proportion of fat, but what the heck…) 

Having almond butter and whole wheat on hand, I mixed it up. I figured while I was at it, I’d add in a few extra changes.

All Moose Goo was made with 2 parts honey and one part whole wheat flour. I then added one part of the third ingredient (almond butter, nutella, etc.)

During my (very fancy) tasting I was surprised to find that I liked the almond butter and jelly one the best. The regular almond butter seemed a little too gritty while the nutella variety was a little too thick and lost some of the nutella flavor I love. I was also a fan of the almond butter and chocolate whey protein.

Have you made your own Moose Goo? Let me know how you liked it in the comments section!

    Hey, I made Moose Goo long time ago. Worked really well from squeeze tube onto tortillas. I personally like the cornmeal, more crunch. Now, many years later, starting to think about adding other things to my Moose Goo. You have interesting ideas. Thanks. AJ
