3 c. (750mL) oats
1 c. (250mL) toasted almonds, coarsely chopped
1 c. (250mL) sunflower or pumpkin seeds or comb. both
1 c. (250mL) raisins
1 can (300mL) reg / low fat sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c. (125mL) vegetable shortening, melted
1 tbsp. (15mL) salt

1 c. (250mL) semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
1/4 tsp. (1mL) salt

1. Preheat oven to 350F (180C). Line a 15" x 10" jelly roll pan with parchment paper.

2. Combine all ingredients for bars in a large bowl. Mix well. Press evenly into prepared pan.

3. Bake in preheated oven 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly.

4. Topping: Combine melted chocolate and salt. Drizzle over bars. Allow chocolate to harden. Cut into bars.

Yields: 30-36 bars.
Freezing: Excellent.

Note: Adapt the nuts and fruits for those picky little eaters...I tried chopped assorted dried fruit instead of raisins, and sesame seeds instead of almonds.
We hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
