    I do understand that most of these are classed empty calories, but in a situation of no food they do have the calories to keep you alive.

    1. All-purpose Flour – 4 cups (1600 kcal)
    2. Vegetable Shortening – 2 cups (3776 kcal)
    3. Sugar – 2 cups (1548 kcal)
    4. Cornstarch – 1 cup (488 kcal)
    5. Honey – 1 cup (1031 kcal)
    6. Vanilla Extract – 4 tbsp (208 kcal)

    Bake at 350 for 25 mins

    This recipe makes 3 lbs and 12 ozs of uncook dough with 8,651 total calories. That makes about 20 – 3 ozs bars of rations with over 430 calories each. You can play with this recipe by adding other ingredients like nuts, dried fruit or peanut butter but make sure you do not use anything that can become rancid. Good luck.

    Best way to explain the taste is a large shortbread cookie.

    Swap out your all-purpose flour for cereals – crushed sugar frosted flakes, + real (not instant or quick) oatmeal + some sort of meusli. Skip the sugar and add dried fruits or fruit leather. More calories and will taste a lot better.

    Why cornstarch? Not sure what purpose it serves as you don’t have anything that needs thickening or being prevented from sticking. And if that’s what you are using it for, I’d substiture 1/2 to 2/3 cup brewer’s yeast which will also give you nutritional density.
