Breakfast Bars | Oatmeal granola Bars | Chewy Energy Bar Recipe

This is one of my favorite breakfast/ snack bar, what I really like about this recipe is that you can play with the ingredients to make it your own. What other way to celebrate my 25'th post ~ this is a secret, keep it with you, ok! I am totally addicted to these bars and blogging :D. Thank you everyone for your support and kind words, they make my day. 
I have done this quite a few times and my husband and I love it. You don't need to use eggs/ butter to this recipe and its completely gluten free. I have used good sources of fiber and anti-oxidants to it so it also makes it healthy.

Don't worry if your bars don't turn up in the perfect square shape, Mine didn't :-) but you will never regret to how good they taste. I have done this couple of times


Prep & cook time ~ 1hr 5 mins (baking 1hr)
Serves: Makes 16
Recipe Source ~ Nigella 


1 x 397g can condensed milk
250g rolled oats (not instant)
75g shredded coconut
100g dried cranberries
125g mixed seeds (pumpkin/ sunflower/ sesame)
handful of walnuts

  • Preheat the oven to 130°C/gas mark 1/2, and oil a 23 x 33 x 4cm baking tin, or use a throwaway foil one.
  • Warm the condensed milk in a large pan.
  • Meanwhile, mix together all the other ingredients and then add the warmed condensed milk, using a rubber or wooden spatula to fold and distribute.
  • Spread the mixture into the tin and press down with the spatula or, better still, your hands (wearing disposable vinyl gloves to stop you sticking), to even the surface.
  • Bake for 1 hour, then remove from the oven and, after about 15 minutes, cut into four across, and four down to make 16 chunky bars. Let cool completely.
