any suggestions on an easy to make vegan, GF, (and preferably no chocolate) dessert for a camping trip?
I don't want to get too fancy with baking cupcakes and such and given the travel and storage issues I am having a hard time coming up with ideas.
I am doing a oatmeal/almond bar but I think that is more for breakfast and don't want to do another bar type item for dessert.
thanks

Are you going to have a fire or do you just want to make something ahead of time?

I was thinking of making ahead and I hadn't thought about making something on site.
But I will have a fire (in a pit) and a gas grill so maybe that opens up options??

Over the fire you could make popcorn in foil (you could do it kettle corn style with sugar and salt), an apple crisp or a peach crisp with oats in foil, banana boats, or roasted marshmallow inside a gf cookie sandwich, or grilled fruit like pineapple or peaches on skewers.

For make ahead, people puppy chow, rice krispie treats, popcorn balls, or raw macaroons.

Banana boats are what I always used to make as a kid! We used to wrap them in some kind of big leaf thing (I don't know what kind of leaf) and stuff them with chocolate, marshmallows, all sorts of tasty things.

You can also bake an apple, hollow out the core and fill it with raisins and nuts, some sugar (you could pack sugar in little ziplocks) traditionally some rum too, wrap in foil and pop in the fire (do this while you eat dinner as they can take a bit to soften)

I don't know if this verges too much into bar territory, but any sort of Rice-Krispy-esque-cereal treat (if you can get ahold of Dandies or TJ's vegan marshmallows) is a win in my book.

What about cold rice pudding? I made this on a recent camping trip (or I should say I made it beforehand, and stored it in a cooler and it kept for 3 days).
