OATMEAL BREAKFAST BARS


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.

1/2 cup  plus 2 tablespoon  condensed milk
125 g (1 1/3 cup)  rolled oat

I love this idea of healthy bars but condensed milk has lots of sugar...can we make we with less calories. do you think we can replace Condensed milk with honey???
A very Happy new year to you.

Sayantani...I presume you can replace condensed milk with honey but must watch them while baking since it is easily browned. FYI a teaspoon of honey contains 25 calories while sugar has 16 calories. Do check out this link:
