Hurricane Granola Bars

During the storm yesterday we were stuck in the house for quite a while so I did a bit of cooking.  I've made these before and they don't last long.  But this time I added extra chocolate chips as a treat during the hurricane.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees:

3 c. quick cook oats
3-3.5 cups of yummy bits
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk

Preparation:  select your yummy bits.  Mine included craisins, dried apricots, dried apples, dried plums, sunflower seeds and dark Ghiradelli 60% cocoa chocolate chips.  Chop the yummy bits into tiny pieces.

Add all ingredients to a large bowl:

Mix with sweetened condensed milk:

Press into 9x13 pan:

Bake 25-30 minutes:

Enjoy and share.....or not!

I with you enough!


  1. Those sound delicious - minus the chocolate (blech). Great action shot of the sweetened condensed milk!

  2. @Katie: What do you mean "minus the chocolate?" It is DARK chocolate... :)
