Mix together 3 cups of various ingredients, whatever you like in your granola bars. I had almonds, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, raisins, cranberries and dried apples, but you could easily throw in some chocolate chips or other fruits and seeds.
The recipe I found has butter and sweetened condensed milk as binding agents. Maybe not the healthiest, but on average per bar it's not so bad. There are good things in them too, so that counts ... right?
Mix it all together and press the mix into a flat pan. I lined mine with parchment paper so clean up is easier. :)
Then bake for about 30 minutes or until the top is lightly browned.
You have to let them cool before cutting or it's like cutting into oatmeal!
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 Tablespoons melted butter
3-3.5 cups nuts, seeds, berries
Mix all ingredients together and press into a greased or lined flat pan. Bake in a 350 F/175C degree oven for 20-30 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool before cutting. Enjoy!
