Homemade Granola Bars

It's been a while since my last post, the blizzard and school have made a mess of my schedule but hopefully I am back on track this week. We are crazy about granola bars at our house, they are yummy and portable but its hard to find healthy bars at a decent price so I found a recipe and made my own. This recipe is super easy to make and you can basically add your favorite dried fruit, nuts, chocolate etc to the recipe. I made a second batch yesterday and they were a huge hit. Enjoy!
3 - cups quick cooking oatmeal
1 - cup unsalted almonds (chopped in the food processor)
1 - cup golden raisins
1 - cup dried cranberries
1- cup of coconut
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips
2 tsp cinnamon
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 - cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 325. Line a 15x10x1 in baking sheet with
aluminum foiland spray with non stick baking spray. Stir all
the ingredients together ina large bowl. Pour into prepared
pan and spread out the mixture.Press down to make it even.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.Cool 5 minutes
in the pan then cut into bars. Place the bars on a wire rack
and cool completely. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
