Post date: Sep 07, 2014 9:41:33 PM


1. 2 ½ cups rolled oats (not instant)

2. 1 cup shredded coconut

3. 1 cup dried cranberries

4. 1 cup mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame)

5. 1 cup natural unsalted peanuts

6. 14.01 oz can sweetened condensed milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 1250ºF, and oil a 9 x 13 inch baking tin, or use a throwaway foil one.

  2. Warm the sweetened condensed milk in a large pan.

  3. Meanwhile, mix together all the other ingredients and then add the warmed sweetened condensed milk, using a rubber or wooden spatula to fold and distribute.

  4. Spread the mixture into the tin and press down with the spatula or, better still, your hands (wearing disposable vinyl gloves to stop you sticking), to even the surface.

  5. Bake for 1 hour, then remove from the oven and, after about 15 minutes, cut into four across, and four down to make 16 chunky bars. Let cool completely.

  6. Put in the freezer until your trek.
