Gourmet scroggin bars
I will never forget my first handful of scroggin, as a boy scout tramping up to the waterfall at the top of the Kaimai Ranges. It was the most tasty thing I’d ever eaten. From that day on I became a huge scroggin fan. The idea for this recipe came about when I first tasted the Pure Delish Primal breakfast mix of fruits, nuts and seeds, while judging this year’s New Zealand Food Awards. I thought it would be great to use in my next scroggin mix. Better still, why not bake it into a user-friendly hand-sized scroggin bar, perfect for the kids or for your next outdoor adventure.
