I found this recipe in a magazine several years ago. If your kids want the prepackaged snacks they see on TV and in other kids lunches, but you don't want them to have the preservatives, extra sugar, and mystery ingredients then these bars are GREAT!

How to Make Homemade Cookies and Milk Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line and 8X8 baking pan with parchment or lightly coat with oil spray.
  2. In a bowl, combine the first 4 ingredients. Drizzle the condensed milk over the top and stir until completely blended.
  3. Press the mixture firmly into the pan with a moist hand or piece of waxed paper. Pressing firmly is key to a solid bar.
  4. Bake 20-25 minutes or until barely golden. Let cool slightly then remove bars using the parchment to cool completely before cutting. If parchment isn't used cool completely in the pan. Cut into 10 equal sized bars. Enjoy for a fast breakfast or after school snack!
