Default Looking for a recipe: MRE Oatmeal Cookie Bar



Advertise Here

Call me crazy, but I LOVE MRE oatmeal cookie bars. In fact, it pretty much the only thing from MRE's that I really like.

I was wondering if anyone has a recipe for making them, or something like them???

If you're talking about that 1"x1"x4" compressed brick from days gone by, yes, you are crazy. You needed a gallon of water to get the thing to go down...lol.

That little gray brick o'luv was my favorite MRE item! I sure would like to know how they made them and make some myself. Maybe I am crazy. But, one block (and yes, water) made a whole meal...

You are the second person I've heard extoll the virtues of that little oatmeal bar. I saw a YT video where a guy was testing some old MRE's he bought at a gun show, and the one item that really got him going was the oatmeal bar. One of these days I'll have to try one. Too bad I didn't have the good sense to join the military when I was young enough. Now that I'm wise enough, I'm too moldy!

Here is a link to the ingredient list for the chocolate covered oatmeal cookie bar.
No idea on proportions of ingredients or cooking method/time.

Thanks, AO, but I was looking for the oatmeal cookie bar, which is a bit different. It is the one that is about twice the size of a pack of gum, that is compressed into a hard block and doesn't have the chocolate coating.

I hear ya, the oatmeal cookie bar was the BEST thing in any MRE back when I was overseas. I've also wondered what the recipe is so I can make my own. It probably involves using a hydraulic press.

I've got a big press, maybe I'll try mashing some instant oatmeal and seeing what happens.

BTW, I've still got an oatmeal cookie bar that I'm saving for a rainy day.

I have that guilty pleasure as well.

Here's another recipe:

Great link....thanks!

I buy some of the 'odds and ends' for my homemade MRE's, this will come in handy.

Did it have a list of ingredients on it? Perhaps a recipe can be invented.

Take a sheet of 1" particle board, and cut it into 1x4" blocks. Before eating, put 1/2 packet of sugar on your tongue. If you close your eyes, you won't know the difference :D

I think that's it right there. It's going to take some experimentation. Most of the MRE foods aren't using anything even remotely close to standard recipes.

Ooooh. That sounds like a great idea. Whatever is in it, I think, will just have to be blended together then baked and/or pressed together into a brick.

That sounds like a good idea. I don't have a press, but I have a big vise in my garage

I think I will do some experimenting this weekend, myself.

Check http://allrecipes.com/ they usually have a good variety of recipes on there. You can search on ingredients that you do want and what you don't want in the search box.

Here is one example of a granola type bar listed... http://allrecipes.com/recipe/playgro...rs/detail.aspx <--it has a high rating and a lot of reviews.

I too love the cookie bar, and I have just emailed Sterling foods to see if they might divulge the recipe. There is no ingredient list on the package... http://www.mreinfo.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=4485
