Recipe Ingredients for Homemade granola bars

3 cups Oats
1 cup Dried Cranberries
1 cup Sunflower Seeds
1 cup Slivered Almonds
300 ml Condensed Milk
1/4 cup Canola Oil
1 cup Unsweetened Applesauce

Recipe Directions for Homemade granola bars

  1. Preheat oven to 325F/160C. Line a 139 inch pan with aluminum foil and grease it well with cooking spray.

  2. In a large bowl mix together oats, cranberries, seeds, nuts and chocolate chips.

  3. Add condensed milk and mix thoroughly. Also stir in the oil and applesauce until blended.

  4. Spread evenly in prepared pan. Use a spatula to smoothen it. If you feel that the oats sticks to the spatula, grease it with cooking spray and smooth it out.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until top is lightly browned. I felt mine was not done after 25 minutes so gave it another 6 minutes. By then it had browned a little.

  6. Place the pan on a rack to cool slightly, then carefully lift the foil and place it on the wire rack. When it is cool completely cut it into bars. You can either go for the usual rectangular shaped bars (like the store bought ones) or squares. I cut them into squares to cut the calorie intake. Dipping the knife in hot water will enable easy cutting.
