How To Make Homemade Survival Bars

  • Survival Bars

    When looking at survival food bars you can look at commercially made bars from players like Mainstay, Datrex, SOS, and ER Bar. The problems with these bars is that they are not made with tender loving care. In some bars you may not be able to find one's that have the ingredients you want. I came across an article by Angela over at Food Storage And Survival dot com where she describes how to make your very own homemade survival bars.

    Have you ever wanted to make your own survival food bars?

    You may remember that almost five years ago we made these homemade survival bars. With approximately 2000 calories total, low cost, and long shelf life, these are a fantastic addition to your vehicle emergency kit or 72 hour kit. But there were some problems. Holy cow, they were hard to mix. Then they overcooked a bit and stuck to the pan. And finally, how in the world are you supposed to eat that brick? There were lots of suggestions in the comments to alleviate some of these problems, so I did some testing and today I’m sharing the results so you can make your own homemade survival bars even better!
