My Dad sent me this one... oddly enough I didn't look at the recipe really until just now.

I think this can be switched up to use Quinoa or other items..

"Create Your Own Flavor" Chewy Granola Bars

At work we just finished up moving offices to a new building across
campus. I've been so tired from the packing and unpacking that I've
lost the energy to bake this week. Instead I have a recipe that I made
a couple weeks ago and never got around to posting.

This recipe came from allrecipes.com for Easy Granola Bars. I chose
this one not only because it received high reviews, but it also
appeared to be a good base recipe that you could easily customize the

For mine, I used semi-sweet chocolate chips, macadamia nuts, coconut,
and a handful of dried blueberries. Also, I only had about 1 1/2
cups of the quick cooking oats in the house, so I used that and also 1
1/2 cups of the old-fashioned oats-- and they turned out fine.

These were great and are an excellent portable snack or yummy
breakfast. It'll be fun to experiment with flavor combinations. I'm thinking
some with cinnamon, dried apples, pecans, and a touch of maple syrup
might be really good in the Fall.

Here's the recipe as it was listed with my adjustments:

Easy Chewy Granola Bars

3 cups quick-cooking oats [I used half each quick cooking and old

1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup sliced almonds [I used macadamia nuts]

1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries [I used a little less than 1/2
cup dried blueberries]

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, sweetened condensed milk,
butter, coconut, almonds, chocolate chips and cranberries with your
hands until well blended. Press flat into the prepared pan.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, depending on how
crunchy you want them. Lightly browned just around the edges will give
you moist, chewy bars. Let cool for 5 minutes, cut into squares then
let cool completely before serving.
