1 can (395g) sweetened condensed milk
2 1/2 cups oats
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup puffed rice (rice crispies)
1 cup mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame)
1 cup unsalted peanuts
Preheat the oven to 260°F, and oil a 23cm square baking tin, or use a throw-away foil one.
Warm the condensed milk in a large pan, stirring all the time to make sure it doesn’t burn.
It will only take a few minutes, and you will feel it getting thinner as it heats through.
Meanwhile, mix together all the other ingredients and then add the warmed condensed milk, using a rubber or wooden spatula to fold and distribute.
Spread the mixture into the tin and press down with the spatula or, better still, your hands (wearing disposable vinyl gloves to stop you sticking), to even the surface.
Bake for 1 hour, then remove from the oven and, after about 10 minutes, cut into chunky bars of your preferred size.
Let cool completely.
