What you need:

3 Cups quick-cooking oats

1 Cup 2% milk

2 Tbsp. unsalted butter (Melted)

1 Cup flaked coconut

1 Cup sliced almonds

1/2 Cup unsalted sunflower seeds

1/2 Cup sweetened dried cranberries

1/2 Cup fresh clover honey

Extra-virgin olive oil

Directions: (Approximate cook time: 25 minutes; Serving size – 8-12 adults; Makes 16-24 granola bar squares.)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees °F, and then grease a 9×13 inch pan lightly with olive oil.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together oats, milk, butter, coconut, almonds, sunflower seeds, and cranberries with your hands until well blended; After ingredients are mixed well, press flat into the prepared pan; After pressing mixture in the pan, drizzle all the honey evenly on top, and place in the oven.

  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes in the preheated oven, depending on how crunchy you prefer them. (Lightly browned just around the edges will give you moist, chewy bars.)

  4. Let cool for 5 minutes, cut into squares then let cool completely before serving.

  5. Eat & enjoy!
