Yum! These are a great pick me up in the morning, packed with sunflower seeds, coconut, flax seeds, oats and dried fruit. So much better than store bought granola bars, and they last forever. They are even better with each day.

This recipe looks great! I can't wait to try it.

Just in case anyone was wondering, I worked out the nutrition info for these, substituting almonds for the dried apricots. They work out to be about 250 calories per serving!

Has anyone tried using the fat free condensed milk?

I made these and they are delicious. I substituted chopped prunes for the cranberries.
