Have you ever wanted to make your own survival ration bars? Like the ones they sell in stores but homemade so you know what’s in them. Well, I got together with a few friends to make some homemade survival ration bars and here’s how it turned out. Make sure to read through the comments when you’re done for some suggestions on making them better!
Apparently, there are a couple of different recipes out there for these bars, we just used one I had been given by a food storage lady. This was really an interesting experiment because there were 6 of us making these survival bread loaves, and of course, they turned out 6 different ways. We’ll discuss what happened as we go through the directions.
Homemade Ration Bars | A Step-By-Step Tutorial
What You’ll Need:
- 2 cups of oats
- 2 1/2 cups of powdered milk
- 1 cup of sugar
- 3 TB of honey
- 1 3-oz package jello (orange or lemon)
- 3 TB of water
Step 1: Mix the Dry Ingredients
Mix the oats, powdered milk, and sugar together in a bowl: A couple of us used regular oats, a couple used quick oats. I really don’t think it matters which you use–whatever you have on hand is fine.
Step 2: Boil Water, Jello, and Honey
In a medium pan mix water, jello, and honey. Bring to a boil. This is just the 3 TB water called for, not the cup of water you’d usually use when making jello. We found that a rolling boil was better than just beginning to boil for the mixing step. The recipe I had specifically called for lemon or orange jello, but we didn’t know why that would be, so we made some with raspberry and watermelon jello also. After we tasted them, we figured the lemon or orange were specified due to the high amount of sugar in this recipe! The loaves made with sweet jello flavors were REALLY sweet when they were done!
