nigella's breakfast bars

Submitted by: JILLYKILLROY


Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    1 14-fl-oz can condensed milk

    2 1/2 cups rolled oats (not instant)

    1 cup shredded coconut

    1 cup dried cranberries

    1 cup mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame)

    1 cup natural unsalted peanuts


Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees and oil a 9- x 13-inch baking pan or just use a disposable aluminum foil one.

2. Warm the condensed milk in a large pan.

3. Meanwhile, mix all the other ingredients together and add the warmed condensed milk, using a rubber spatula to fold and distribute.

4. Spread the mixture into the oiled or foil pan and press down with a spatula or, better still, your hands (wearing those disposable latex CSI gloves to stop you from sticking) to make the surface even.

5. Bake for 1 hour, remove, and after about 15 minutes, cut into four across and four down, to make 16 chunky bars. Let cool completely.

    Be careful with this one, the recipe shows condensed milk but the "ingredient detail" states evaporated. Big calorie difference between the two. - 4/14/08

    I just made this breakfast bar and it was awesome. Now I am concerned about the evaporated and condensed milk mix-up. - 9/16/09

    Tastes Fantastic! Condensed milk is the ingredient to use, but i don't know if it's the one taken into account in the info. Really, really yummy and easy to make too. I had a little trouble getting it out of the pan, even though I oiled it, but other than that...perfect. - 5/8/08

  • super tasty, and both easy to make and convenient. WARNING, though - the calorie count is way off, it was calculated with evaporated milk and no coconut. - 10/6/13

  • Thanks you so much for sharing! I used the nuts the recipe called for and it was delicious! I love sunflower seeds and am so glad I found your recipe. The best thing about this recipe is that its so versatile and can use different nuts or add in some chocolate chips for a sweeter bar. - 4/5/11

  • These were so good and easy to make...I used soy nuts, cashews, and almonds instead of the peanuts and seeds...My husband loves them and my co-workers too!!! Thank you for the recipe!! - 5/17/10

  • My family loves this bar. We call it a granola bar. I am having lots of fun trying different seeds and dried fruits. Blueberries were good. I'm going to try some spices the next time I make it. And I will add some ground flax seed for additional benefits. - 5/3/09

  • I make these for my boyfriend as a quick breakfast for his busy schedule. They are great! Easy to modify. Best use unsweetened coconut otherwise become too sweet. I use almonds, dried apples, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries and mini chocolate chips. Yum. - 4/5/09

  • Great way to use the condensed milk can I mistakenly bought once instead of evaporated.Worked out very well in silicone baking pan (no stick). - 3/28/09

  • These bars are addictive! So quick and easy to make, chocked full of vitamin E and iron and trace minerals. I use almonds in place of peanuts, and add 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips. I also have found it is not necessary to heat the milk, just make a well in the center.
    The kids love them!!! - 7/18/08
