More-Healthy-Than-Some Fruity, Seedy, Nut Bars

The recipe can be easily doubled. Recipe adapted from Nigella Lawson/recipe-notes]

  • 2/3 c sweetened condensed milk (use all of a 14 oz can, if you’re doubling the recipe)
  • 1 1/4 c quick-cooking oats (not instant)
  • 1/2 c shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • 1 1/2 c Non-Binary Eco-Friendly Sleep-Inducing Trail Mix (or trail mix of your choice)

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Generously butter an 8″x8″ baking pan.

Warm the condensed milk in a medium pan. While it’s heating, mix together all of the other ingredients, then add that to the warmed condensed milk.

Spread the mixture into the pan, smoothing the top with a spatula.

Bake for 50-60 minutes (the edges should be browned). Cool for 15 minutes and then cut into 9 bars (it’s important to do this while it’s still warm – and it helps to have a sharp – maybe serrated – knife, since you’ll be cutting through big chunks of nuts, etc.). Cool completely in the pan before serving.

These bars will keep well for several days at room temperature. They’ll be chewy, but delicious. And maybe a little healthy.
