Life Changing Bread – Survival Style

Well, I have no other reason to fall in love with this bread than it’s delicious (not everyone loves it – probably because it’s not like a real bread per se).

But when I realized how easy it is to make and how most of the items can be easily stored in food storage, I was sold. SOLD survivors!

I’m posting some pictures. I’m not sure where this particular recipe originated.
I got it from my grandma who got it from my aunt.
And I got the ingredients from my mom who had the same recipe which she got from my grandma.

Like a bad rendition of he-said-she-said.

I’ll post the recipe picture below as well as type out the recipe so you can copy and paste it if you want.

Okay, so my mom got the ridiculous ingredients and then measured them out into baggies.
I love her.
Can you believe how much work she did for this? She’s so awesome.
Anyway, here they are. The only thing not in the bags is the water. I got that, right?

I separated the dry from the wet and placed the beautiful dry ingredients into a separate bowl, like the directions demanded.

The coconut oil and honey needed to be loose enough I could get all of the items out of the baggy – this was messy for me until I figured out that the water needed to be hot, not luke warm. Ugh. I wasn’t thinking straight today.

I mixed and then pressed the mixture into a well-greased bread pan with a spoon. The recipe states use your fingers, I gave it the finger with that one. I do NOT like to touch stuff like this. I can actually cook an entire meal with five courses and never actually get food on my hands. It’s weird, but there it is.

These are after the first 20 minutes. Smelling good and they popped right out. I just used a pan spray to grease my pans. They worked awesome.

All in all this turned out great. On the slice I ate, I used very little honey to sweeten it. I was very excited that this worked out so well. I LOVED IT!

Thanks again Mom, for all the time and effort.

So here’s the recipe.

Life Changing Bread


1/2 C sunflower seeds

1/2 C flax seeds

1/2 C unsalted crushed almonds

2 T chia seeds

4 T psyllium

2 1/2 C rolled oats

1/2 C chopped apricots (we also used prunes yum!)

1 t. sea salt

2 T pure maple syrup

3 T melted coconut oil

1 1/2 C warm water


  • Mix dry ingredients. Stir well in bowl.
  • Whisk wet ingredients together.
  • Add all ingredients together and mix well until all well coated.
  • Set up for at least 2 hours.
  • Bake 350 for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from pan.
  • Place loaf on oven rack. Bake additional 30 minutes. Bread is done when a hollow sound comes from thumping the shell.

This recipe clicked with my survival side. A person might not have some of those things in their food storage, but I had no idea you could put that small amount of items into a pan and bake it and get something so edible. I’m going to experiment with more items and see what I can do with items from my food storage.

Life Changing Bread appears in my series – Worth of Souls.
