Before SHTF, preppers know that they need to stock up on survival rations so they can keep their energy up when disaster strikes. But not all energy bars are good for you, especially if they’re full of added sugar and harmful chemicals like high-fructose corn syrup.
Below are recipes you can try if you want to stock up on nutritious, homemade survival energy bars. (h/t to PrepSchoolDaily.Blogspot.com)
Energy bars should contain macronutrients like carbohydrates, fat and protein and micronutrients like essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.
Store-bought energy bars are often displayed near candy bars, and for a good reason. Despite claims that they’re good for you, commercially made energy bars come in artificial flavors and contain mostly sugar or high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS).
Here are six reasons why high-fructose corn syrup is bad for you:
Store-bought energy bars are full of carbs that are digested and absorbed quickly into your bloodstream. This is ideal if you’re hiking to your bug-out location, but not if you just want a light snack for lunch.
These homemade survival energy bars taste just as good as store-bought bars, but minus the harmful chemicals, HFCS and added sugars.
They’re so tasty you might even be tempted to snack on them if you’re feeling hungry. (Related: Prepper food supply: How to make Meals, Ready-to-Eat (MREs).)
Package the bars depending on your needs. If you’re adding the survival energy bars into bug-out bags (BOBs), vacuum-seal them.
You can also wrap each bar in plastic and store them in cookie or candy tins in your car.
Here’s another simple recipe you can try if you want to make no-bake survival energy bars with peanut butter.
Don’t buy energy bars full of added sugar or harmful HFCS. Instead, make DIY survival energy bars and use nutritious ingredients like oats, honey and nut butter.
