Sweetened condensed milk gives these homemade granola bars the best flavour and texture of any homemade granola bar I've ever tried.

  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (miniature are best)
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup melted butter or margarine
  1. Preheat ovent to 325 degrees F. Line a 9x13" baking dish with foil and spray foil with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together oats, wheat germ, cranberries, coconut, and chocolate chips. Add sweetened condensed milk and stir to coat. Stir in melted butter.
  3. Press mixture evenly into prepared pan (if you prefer a thinner square, use an 11x15" pan) and bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, until edges are lightly golden.
