survival bars


this is a snack food recipe i have had for nearly 30 years. it is very filling and has a tendency to expand when consumed with liquids; therefore, eat sparingly and gradually to avoid bloated feeling. it is especially great for backpacking or camping trips as it does not require refrigeration. may be made ahead of time and frozen.
