[breakfast bars]

These are so easy and they get better as the week goes by.  Snack on them during the day, or enjoy one for breakfast. 
Based on Nigella Lawson's recipe of the same name.

1 14-oz can condensed sweetened milk
2 1/2 cups rolled oats (not instant)
1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup low salt, or unsalted, peanuts

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.  Oil a 9x13-inch baking pan, (I use my Pyrex).  Warm the condensed milk in a saucepan.  Meanwhile, mix all the other ingredients in a large bowl and add the warmed condensed milk, using a rubber spatula to fold and distribute.  Spread the mixture into the oiled pan and press down until the surface is flat.  Bake for 1 hour.  Let the pan cool on the counter for 15 minutes, then cut into four across and four down to make 16 chunky bars.  Let them continue to cool until they're room temperature.  Store in a ziplock bag or plastic container.  They get better as they sit.
