Survival Recipe (make our own emergency food bars)
I was perusing the internet to see if there's any way to make your own survival food bar for much less than the prices they want for the actual survival food bars and I stumbled upon this:

Emergency survival bars

Nurtional analysis: food energy per bar: 74%
Protien 135%
Total lipids fats 12%
Carbs 93%
Total saturated fats 8%
1000 cal. per bar

The Recipe

3c. cereal(oatmeal,cornmeal or wheat flakes)
1/4 t. salt
3T. honey
21/2c. powdered milk
1c.sugar
1/2c. jello (optional)
1/4c. water
Add raisins if you like
Put all dry ingred. except jello in bowl. Bring honey,water and jello to
boil. Add to dry ingred. Mix well. Place in small square dish and dry in oven
under very low heat. Wrap and store. This will make 2 bars - what one person
would require for 1 day.

These store for long time if cooked untill quite dry and can be eaten dry or
cooked in about 3/4 c. water .....

Re: Survival Recipe (make our own emergency food bars)
I don't have a specific recipe, and I don't know how long they last, but I make my own energy bars by chopping dried fruit and nuts (sometimes flax seeds) in some sort of of processor (not too fine) and mixing a little coconut oil (non-hydrogenated) and honey (sometimes a little water). Mix together well, and press firmly in a pan. Slice into bars after it has set for a while. These are along the lines of Larabars. You really don't need a lot of honey...just enough to make the mixture stick together. I have also added ground oatmeal.

Re: Survival Recipe (make our own emergency food bars)
I have made this recipe. It is based on the ingredient list of a commercially made emergency food bar. It does work. And it does keep a long, long time; even in the heat of a vehicle's glove compartment in Texas when vacuum sealed.

double: single:
8 cups 4 cups Flour
4 cups 2 cups shortening
4 cups 2 cups sugar
2 cups 1 cup cornstarch
2 cups 1 cup honey (or corn syrup)
8 Tablespoons 4 Tablespoons vanilla/maple/etc flavoring

One could add coconut, but the coconut could eventually turn rancid. Do not add ingredients which could spoil, such as eggs!

Pat into ungreased pie pans about 1" thick
Bake at 350 deg. Preheated oven for about 30 min.
After cooking, allow to cool a little, then invert and remove from pans to air dry a little and finish cooling off.

Put in ziplock bags
Or better yet, vacuum seal.

I made a note that next time I might try cutting back a little on shortening, but the recipe is usable as is.

Note that it has very little nutritional value. No vitamins etc. But it does provide energy in a compact form. And it doesn't contain anything which spoils easily or is affected by heat. It will last a long, long time. I have eaten some which was stored in a glove compartment for over a year in Texas heat and it was unchanged, tasted good, and didn't hurt me. :)
Update- make that 9 years!

Notice that this recipe does NOT have eggs or anything else which could spoil. If you add stuff to it, then it probably won't keep as well.

Curious to see any more recipes if others have them. Good idea for a thread.

I would much prefer to eat trail mix made from whole nuts and seeds and dried fruit, but it does get stale, I keep all that stuff in the refrigerator or freezer.

The health food stores used to have Halvah, a middle eastern or kosher candy made from ground sesame seeds and honey. I looked for it a few weeks ago and couldn't find any for sale anywhere here. Anyone ever made that? I don't have a food processor, guess you'd need one.

The provider of this recipe is ... still asleep.

Please come to the realization that nearly all of those ingredients are not food, don't waste your time making those bars. If any energy is derived from them it came from Honey or maple flavoring (unless it's Mrs. Butterworth's, LOL!) the rest is pure crap.
