There’s nothing like a self-supported adventure where you’ve made all the snacks yourself. Especially when the treats you have on board are whole-grain, fruit filled hand pies. I love to take these pocket-sized pies on big adventures where I need hearty treats with staying power, but if I’m honest having freshly made handpies is a perfect excuse to set out on a little spin around the neighborhood too, just to find a spot to snack. I’m sure you’ll agree that any ride is better with PIE.
The recipe below contains instructions for how to make your own whole-grain pie crust, and there are a few homemade filling options too. But, if you’re in a pinch, storebough pie crust and a jar of your favorite jam (or Nutella!) would be THE BOMB too.
