Granola Bars


Homemade Granola Bars

3 cups quick cooking oatmeal
1 cup unsalted peanuts
1 cup raisins
1 cup sliced almonds
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 - cup butter, melted
*you can use whatever mix-in's you like. This time I used peanuts, sliced almonds, dried cranberries, coconut, and chocolate chips. Other options include: golden raisins, peanut butter or butterscotch chips, dried fruit of your choice, flax seed, wheat germ, coconut, sunflower seeds, walnuts or pecans.


Preheat oven to 325. Line a 15x10x1 in baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non stick baking spray. Stir all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Pour into prepared pan and spread out the mixture. Press down to make it even. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes in the pan then cut into bars. Place the bars on a wire rack and cool completely. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
