Muesli bars

I spied this recipe on a can of condensed milk in the supermarket. So of course had to buy the can so I could get the recipe!! A victim of clever marketing? Me? Never!!
Anyway, Twirly Boy is back at school tomorrow. The summer holidays are finally over. These wee bars will be great for packed lunches.

Muesli bars
Makes 24 squares

2 cups rolled oats
1 cup rice krispies
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
1/4 cup chopped pitted dates
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1 tbsp cocoa powder
395g can light condensed milk
2 tbsp runny honey

  • Preheat oven to 180C. Line a 27cm X 18cm X 3cm tin with baking paper.
  • Place dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Pour condensed milk and runny honey into a saucepan (preferably non-stick). Bring to the boil over a low heat stirring all the time. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Pour the hot condensed milk mixture onto the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  • Press mixture into the tin, and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Cut into bars in tin while still warm. Leave to cool in tin.
