As a prepper, it’s not enough to have a stockpile full of food. Before SHTF, you also need to learn and practice different recipes that you can make using supplies from your stockpile.
One such recipe is this one for long-lasting lemon energy bars. When disaster strikes, you can use these energy bars to keep up your energy. (h/t to AskAPrepper.com)
The recipe below only requires seven ingredients that you may already have in your pantry. These energy bars are easy to make and dehydrate for long-term storage.
This recipe combines lemon-flavored jello with fiber-rich whole oats, flaxseeds and honey to make tasty energy bars full of protein and nutrients.
Eat the energy bars whenever you need a quick energy boost.
Since the bars dried out in the oven, most of the moisture is removed from the dough. This is a good thing because this means there’s less of a chance that bacteria will contaminate the bars during storage.
Store the bars in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
For an extra layer of protection, store the energy bars in a Ziploc or Mylar bag, seal it and place the bag inside an airtight container. (Related: Prepper recipes: How to make survival energy bars.)
If you want to use Mylar bags, get some quart-sized Mylar bags and oxygen absorbers. Store the bars three-fourths of the way full with one CC oxygen absorber then seal well.
Label each bag that you seal with the recipe name and date of the seal.
If you have the equipment, vacuum-seal the bars and label them for your food stockpile. You can seal the bars and cut them into individual portions so that you don’t have to reopen a sealed bag.
While the recipe uses lemon jello, you can use other flavors if you want to. Just don’t use pudding, which will mess up the consistency of the energy bars.
Here are other healthy ingredients you can use to make the energy bars:
When SHTF, getting creative with your food supply is a great way to boost everyone’s appetite and prevent food fatigue. Try new recipes using ingredients in your stockpile to make sure nothing goes to waste in a long-term disaster scenario.
