Easy Granola Bars
I would give it 3 out of 5 stars. Not the best granola bars, not the worst. They were a little sweet and softer than most granola bars, which I liked. They weren't super healthy, the recipe calls for sweetened condensed milk but they were by no means super fattening. So although I would have loved a nice chocolate chip cookie or linzer tart, I opted for the granola bars for the kids. They always win don't they!
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan.
- In a large bowl, mix together the oats, sweetened condensed milk, butter, coconut, almonds, chocolate chips and cranberries with your hands until well blended. Press flat into the prepared pan.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, depending on how crunchy you want them. Lightly browned just around the edges will give you moist, chewy bars. Let cool for 5 minutes, cut into squares then let cool completely before serving.
