Homemade Granola Bars

Homemade Granola Bars

3 - cups quick cooking oatmeal

(I used Quaker Oats)

1 - cup unsalted peanuts

1 - cup raisins

1 - cup sliced almonds (I used whole almonds)

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

1/2 - cup butter, melted

1/4 cup unsalted sunflower seeds

( I used honey roasted)

Preheat oven to 325. Line a 15x10x1 in baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non stick baking spray. I used a 9x13 inch glass pan because I wanted thicker bars. 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.

Additional Mix In's:

Here is a list of all sorts of ingredients that you can add to your granola bars. Just mix and match to your liking. Its all about having fun with the recipe and putting your own spin on it.

•dried cranberries or cherries, golden raisins, chocolate, peanut butter or butterscotch chips, dried fruit of your choice, flax seed, wheat germ, coconut, walnuts or pecans.
