Our customers talked, and we listened! We hear you love GORP, but have to hide it from your kids and spouse because you want to keep it all for yourself (we get it!) - so we want to make it affordable for you to share with everyone!

This one bag of GORP Ready Mix will make you 25, 70g bars for around $1.00 per bar!

We've sourced the same best ingredients as our GORP Bar, and we've measured and packaged them for you! All you need is 15 minutes, a few ingredients, a rolling pin and cookie pan - then Mix It Up!

FAQ's

Q: Where do I buy Brown Rice Syrup?

You can buy from Vita Health Markets (Winnipeg) or Bulk Barn, some Superstores or usually your health food store will have it. Otherwise you can get it on Well.ca or Amazon.ca

Q: What is the expiry on the mix?

If left unopened, the bag of mix is good for 8 months! Once prepared, store the bars in the fridge (in the re-sealable bag it came in) and they are good for around 3 months! If you want to keep them around for longer, you can put them in the freezer (using a freezer safe container).

Q: Can I use a half or portion of the bag?

The recipes are meant to use the whole bag of Ready Mix, however, if you would like to use half the bag, just make sure you shake it up before scooping it out! The nutritional values may not remain the same this way, as ingredients may settle near the bottom. It might be better to prepare them and put them in the fridge or freezer as mentioned above!

Q: My bars turned out crumbly! What went wrong?

There are a few reasons your bars may be crumbly;

1. The low sugar recipe removes some of the sticky sweetness that holds our bars together the best (there's a lot of whole ingredients in the bars - it's not powder!) Add more peanut butter ;)

2. Natural Peanut Butter - must be smooth, natural peanut butter. Do not use chunky or the kind that contains sugar. Even then, peanut butters come in all consistencies, so when your bars aren't sticking together when rolled, add a bit more peanut butter :) Use your judgement - you can do it!

3. Your liquids boiled too long! You need only bring it to a consistency that is easy to pour - the moment you see the first heat bubble - you're done heating the liquid!

4. You didn't follow the recipe. ;) Nahhh, you wouldn't do that!

Q: My bars are sticking to the pan!

Yep, honey & brown rice syrup will do that. Use parchment paper underneath the bars or grease the pan with coconut oil :)
