Breakfast Bars

Breakfast Bars

These breakfast bars are full of goodness and energy – packed to the brim with oats, nuts, seeds and dried fruit they are a great breakfast on the go or post training snack.

However they should come with a warning! One is never enough – and although full of good fats they are energy dense and so watch your serving size! Just the one slice should suffice!!


1.Preheat oven to 130 degrees and oil a baking tin (you can use round or square – personally I used a square one as it makes it easier to slice once cooked!)

2.Warm the condensed milk in a saucepan – keep your eye on this – you don’t want the milk to boil or burn

3.Mix together all the other ingredients and then add the warm condensed milk, using either rubber or wooden spatula to fold and distribute

4.Spread the mixture in to the baking tin and press down with a spatula (I use a potato masher!) to even the surface

5.Bake for 1 hour

6.Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin for 15 mins

7.Remove from the tin and only when cooled cut in to slices (if you try and cut it when it is still warm it all falls apart!)

I find this then lasts for up to a week in an airtight container (although to be fair I’ve normally eaten it all within a week!)


1x 397g can condensed milk
250g whole rolled oats
75g desiccated coconut
100g dried cranberries (I used a mix of dried cranberries, raisins and sultanas)
125g mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame)
125g natural unsalted peanuts (I buy mine from Tesco)
– I also added a sprinkling of raw cacao nibs but that’s completely optional! –
