With the long weekend ahead, we thought we’d put together a list of road trip treats for your long journey.
Rather than stopping at every petrol port for a snack or a meal, prep a food hamper to help keep you and the car’s occupants watered and fed during the long haul journey. Even if you’re not a fan of stopping at every padstal, just remember to take a break every couple of hours to stay alert on the roads.

We never promised to provide you with healthy treats for your journey, which is why we have no problem starting our list off with some chocolate fudge.
Just to balance things out, we’ve added these raw energy balls to our list.

Keep yourself entertained during a long road trip with these podcast suggestions.
We can’t say no to peanut butter which is why these biscuits are on our list.
Yes, you read that correctly. Black beans make for a great substitute in baking. Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it.

Sandwiches are a padkos stable, so why not make your own bread for the road? Thankfully there’s no rising time in this seed loaf recipe, so when we say ‘quick’ we really mean it.
7. Biltong Pâté
Biltong is another road trip favourite, so we thought this pâté smeared on a couple of crackers can only make the journey that much better.
The cooking time on these bites is 8 minutes. Can it get any easier?
9. Oat Bites
Whip these oat bites up the night before your trip and you’ll be able to have breakfast on the road.
