Milk and Cereal Bars

makes 16

adapted from the lovely Nigella

  • 3 c quick oats
  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 c toasted wheat germ
  • ½ c sunflower seeds
  • ½ c chopped walnuts
  • ½ c raisins

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 9×13” pan (or 2 8×6” pans) with parchment paper.

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Press mixture into prepared pan, and bake 20-25 minutes. Edges should be lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into 16 bars.

The verdict:

These breakfast bars are sweet and chewy. They stay together nicely after cutting (which has often been an issue for me in granola bar recipes) and have a caramel-y, milky taste from the sweetened condensed milk. It tastes a lot like a bowl of oatmeal and raisins with milk, but in a handy to-go form. Try substituting different mix-ins- craisins, sliced almonds, coconut, etc.
