I made these for my now ex-husband while he was in Iraq. They were great cause you can mix all sorts of combos and know exactly what is going into the mix. Do not limit yourself. This image from The Kitchen Sink blog has seed, nuts, dried fruits, etc! Go wild!!!
The process at the end of flipping the bars out is to keep the bottoms from becoming "soggy."

How to Make Easy Granola Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cover a 15x10 inch jelly-roll pan with foil (make sure it goes up and over the lip of the pan). Spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl; mix together oats, sweetened condensed milk, butter, and "stuff" until well blended. Press mixture flat into pan.
  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until desired doneness. You want them lightly brown around the edges. Let cool for 5 minutes, cut into squares. Cover bars and top of pan with another large piece of foil that has been sprayed with cooking spray and seal tightly. Flip pan, using a cutting board for support, upside down and let bars cool completely.
