When it comes to learning survival skills like most everything else it comes down to practice. You can have all the survival skills in the world, but if you don’t at least try them out every once in awhile you might find it tough going if you are forced to use those skills.
So, you’ve got a bunch of wheat stored in your closet and SHTF. What are you going to do? You’re going to be thinking about baking bread.
It seems like it would be a tough thing to pull of, but it’s not really that hard. All you really need is water, and some flour.
You can get away without yeast, sugar, baking soda, or really anything except the flour and water. We found a basic recipe that will get you going!
EASY SURVIVAL BREAD
1 cup of fine whole wheat flour (buy from store or grind your own)
2 tbsp. of olive oil (optional, also regular vegetable oil works too)
1 tsp. salt (optional, add more or less to taste)
1/2 cup of water

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and scoop it togther into a ball. Lightly dust a cookie sheet, rock, or other flat surface with flour. Pour the dough ball out and knead for 5 mins. Roll out to about 1/8″ thin and bake at 350F for 20 mins.
Powers out? No oven? Put it in a dutch oven instead and cook it over a fire. No dutch oven? Throw it on a heated flat rock – or even in the ashes if you don’t mind some grit and charcoal flavoring – and flip it a couple of times till lightly brown and firm.
This will serve about 3-4 people if eaten as a side with a meal, or make about 2 sandwiches. The below nutritional info is for the entire loaf.
