Easy to Make Ration/Survival Bars

Introduction: Easy to Make Ration/Survival Bars

Sorry for a lack of photographic aid, but this is fairly straightforward and shouldn't be too hard.

Serves 6 at 1000 calories a bar. I recommend cutting into 12 or more equal bars.

- 1 cup softened butter

- 1 cup sugar (I used brown sugar)

- 3 tbsp. light corn syrup (or a little more to taste)

- 3 tbsp. honey (called for raw, I used homogenized)

- 1/2 tsp vanilla

- 9-1/2 cups finely ground rolled oats

- 1/2 cup sliced almonds


1 - Cream together butter, sugar, corn syrup, honey, and vanilla.

2 - Grind rolled oats using food processor or coffee grinder (I used a Magic Bullet and ran the almonds through as well).

3 - Softly stir in almonds and oats.

4 - Press into a 13"x9" pan (or similar).

5 - Bake at 325 F for 15-20 minutes. DO NOT OVER COOK.

6 - VERY IMPORTANT - As soon as you remove the pan from the oven, press the mixture firmly with a spatula.

7 - Cut into squares and let cool in the pan.

Obviously use alternatives to almonds if you're concerned about nut allergies.

    Feel like you could throw in some choclate chips and marichino cherries to give it a bit more flavor

    Nice recipe. If you have any pictures of the preparation, it would really hep people to duplicate them.
