Deliciously Healthy Snack!
I’ve been making these bars for years.
Makes 36 bars
1/2 cup quinoa flakes
1/2 cups rice flakes
1 cup rice bubbles
11/2 cup puffed amaranth
1/4 cup rice bran
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup raisins or other dried fruit
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate drops
1 400g can low fat sweetened condensed milk
1/8 cup water if necessary to hold together
Line a 38 × 25cm (15 × 10″) pan with baking paper.
Combine all ingredients by hand (literally) in a large bowl. Mix well.
Spoon into prepared pan evenly.
Cover with another piece of baking paper. Press with hands, wooden spoon, wooden block or rolling pin without handles. It is important to compact the mixture as much as possible.
Bake in a preheated oven 160°C (325°F) for 25–28 minutes or until golden brown. You can lay strips of aluminum foil over the edges half way through to help the mixture bake evenly.
Lift out of baking pan, cool. To make cutting easier, I trim off the edges while still a little warm then chill for several hours or overnight before cutting into bars. Store in freezer, they thaw quickly.
