If you need a healthy and easy breakfast or in between snack to start your day, you must try this recipe. It is made of rolled oat, dried fruit ( you can use raisin, cherry, mixed peel, cranberries) and toasted chopped nuts ( almond, hazel, cashew, peanut). They're sweetened with condensed milk instead of sugar and contains minimal fat.
To make it easier you can press the dough into square greased tin then slice after it has been baked. You'll be amazed how this healthy treat produces a chewy and not so sweet bar despite using condensed milk.
