72 Hour Kit - Survival Bread

Survival Bread

2 cups oats
2 ½ cups powdered milk
1 cup sugar
3 TBSP honey
1 (3 oz.) pkg. orange or lemon Jello
3 TBSP water

In the mixing bowl combine the oats, powered milk, and the sugar. Mix well and set aside.

In the medium sauce pan mix the water, Jello, and honey. Place on the stove top and bring to a boil. Slowly add this into the oat mixture. Make sure it is all well blended together. If the dough is a little dry, add a small amount of water one teaspoonful at a time. It should be firm but doughy

Once it is ready shape the dough into a loaf, about the size of a small red brick. Place the bread loaf onto the cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. If you increased the recipe for multiple loaves you can place several at a time onto the cookie sheet for baking. Don't place them too close together.

Once the bread is baked remove from the cookie sheet and allow to cool completely. The bread can be wrapped whole in the foil for storage. This bread can be stored indefinitely.

Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I am loving this blog!
I have 2 questions about this bread. 1. What makes this bread be able to be stored indefinitely? and 2. what is the best way to store it? I know it says to wrap it in foil but is there more to it? I look forward to your answers and trying the recipe :) Thank you, Sandra D.

I am not sure what makes it able to be stored indefinitely... it might be the fact that that there is VERY little water and the preservatives in the Jello? I've just wrapped my in foil a couple times and it's been fine for the past year. I just make sure I don't move it around too much so the foil doesn't rip.

Can you use other flavors of jello? My family isn't partial to citrus fruit flavor. Thanks!

Lisa said...

I am sure any other flavor would work just fine :)

Does it cut easily or can you bake it like cookies instead?

Lisa said...

I am sure you could bake it like cookies. It doesn't slice cleanly like bread, but does crumble.
