Number of Servings: 16


    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


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 have just made these bars and they were delicious. No more wondering what to eat for breakfast in this "Down Under" household. - 1/27/10

    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.
