Methods and options for baking bread off grid

Bread is a classic sustenance for survival in most every culture.
There are many references to bread for survival:

  • "Give us this day our daily bread" takes on a very important
    meaning for preppers! And there are more references to
    bread making in the bible:

  • "Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans,
    and lentils, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one
    vessel, and make thee bread thereof... -Ezekiel 4:9"

Variety certainly will make survival more bearable, and as such,
preppers thinking of enhancing their food storage system should
take a closer look at
grains and breads.

Here is
how to make bread yeast.

Survival Bread and Food Storage
Preppers plan a variety of breads in their food storage. Many
preppers choose to store hearty and wholesome hard red wheat
and or the lighter and more popular white wheat, and then grind
it themselves to make not only breads, but also biscuits,
muffins, pizzas,
cookies and more.

Start by grinding your own hard wheat and then you can expand
your bread selection start making breads from other grains, such
corn, rye and oats. See more in our grains for preppers pages.

Here is a list of popular breads for preppers:

  • Bannock Bread. Bannock bread is a crude and nutritious
    bushcraft-style of survival bread that's baked over an open
    fire. Here's how to bake Bannock Bread. See also hard tack.

  • Bread in a can! B&M Brown Bread at the bottom of the
    page, is a bread immediately edible from the can, and is
    often served with beans. See also the canned bread mixes
    at the bottom of the page.

  • Bread & Roll Mix #10 can (provident pantry). You're on a
    roll if you have the bread and roll mix by Provident Pantry,
    pictured at the top of the page. Bread mixes are stored in
    #10 cans to last.A comforting dinner roll will help restore
    morale in uncertain times.

  • Cornbread. Pioneers baked cornbread in a cast iron skillet.
    Today, preppers use corn meal to make corn bread,
    pancakes and muffins. They also use this course flour to
    coat meats and to keep artisan breads from sticking to the
    pan. You'll find corn meal is a very useful item in the
    prepper's pantry.

  • Ezekiel bread. You don't need to be religious to enjoy
    Ezikiel bread! Ezekiel Bread (sometimes also called "Bible
    Bread" or "Manna Bread") is a bread baked from a specific
    recipe found in the Old Testament, which reads "Take thou
    also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils,
    and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and
    make thee bread thereof... -Ezekiel 4:9" When you combine
    these six grains and legumes an amazing thing happens:
    the combination forms a complete protein! You'll find many
    recipes for Ezekiel Bread on the web, but they all call for
    the these six grains. The Handy Pantry Sprouting Ezekiel
    Bread Grain Mix is certified organic, and has the perfect
    proportion of grains to help you bake delicious and

  • Fry Bread. Fry bread is the traditional bread of Native
    Americans. It's perfect for Indian Tacos.

  • Hard tack. Hard tack was a bread baked and eaten by
    pioneers and during the civil war. It's more of a hard
    cracker than bread. Soldiers and pioneers moistened their
    hard tack by dipping it in coffee, much the way Italians dip
    their biscotti. Consider also learning how to make bannock
    bread, which has a fluffier consistency, though also a hard-
    cracker like bread. Here's how to make hard tack.

  • Irish soda bread.

    sort of hard cracker used for survival. A classic maker of
