I just can't follow as recipe as is. For my add-ins, I used coconut, pumpkin seeds (to make them nut-free), mini M&M's, dried papaya, raisins and a bit of ground flax seeds. I just made sure I had 3 1/2 cups of mix.
Too bad it took me three tries to get it right! I ruined two batches last week. The first batch I made with sunflower seeds that has gone rancid. I should have tasted my ingredients before using them. Nuts and seeds tend to go rancid quickly as they contain natural oils. The second batch I tried to make healthier by using unsweetened condensed milk. Fail.

So much better than store-bought granola bars. I hope they freeze well. The best tip I read for working with sweetened condensed milk (Eaglebran) is to place the can in hot water for a few minutes before using. It makes it much easier to work with.
Thanks for reading!
