Sustainment is an essential part of bugging out. Wilderness survival is another big situation where you need to consider sustainment.

A simple recipe to make delicious 3,000 calorie survival bars!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups oats
  • 2½ cups powdered milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 3-oz. package lemon jello
  • 3 tbsp water

Instructions

  1. Add the honey to the water and bring to a boil
  2. Take off the heat and add the remaining dry ingredients
  3. Mix thoroughly and let cool
  4. Press the mix into a baking sheet
  5. Bake at 200 degrees for about 2 hours

Notes

Change the jello flavor and add additional ingredients like raisins (my favorite!) or chocolate chips to taste.

The entire batch is 3,000 calories, which is impressive! A large portion of that comes from the powdered milk, so don't omit that from the recipe!

Cut and portion the bars as needed. My favorite way is to break them into quarters which gets me 750 calories per bar. This seems to be the most manageable option for us.

Conclusion

Refueling is an important part of any hike or bug out. If you can do it on the move and in a hurry you can cover much more ground in a hurry.

Don’t forget that you can personalize these bars by adding in some of your own favorite ingredients. Things like raisins, chocolate, peanuts, sunflower seeds or dried fruit would only increase the taste and texture of these bars.

Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food

Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.

Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.

Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
