Almost Healthy Breakfast Bars

Following a special request from the youngling for ‘breakfast bars’, we did a little research and knocked up a batch. I’d say they’re fairly healthy, but they do contain condensed milk..

Compared to shop-bought alternatives, who cares!


  • 397g Condensed Milk (standard can)
  • 250g Oats
  • 100g Dried Fruit (Sulatanas, Cherries, Goji berries, Cranberries – whatever you have/fancy)
  • 75g   Dessicated or Shredded Coconut
  • 125g Chopped Nuts (whatever you like – we used Cashews)
  • 125g Seeds (Sunflower, Pumpkin, Linseed, Sesame…)


Full-on simple.

Pre-heat your oven to 130°C

Grease a (9×11 inch) baking tin.

Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

Warm the condensed milk in a pan and then stir everything together. Fill the baking tin and firm it down until even.

Bake for 1 hour and then cut them to your desired size once they have cooled slightly.


(Tea is optional but highly recommended).
