Coconut Granola Bars

I love coconut.  And, I make no apologies for using copious amounts in this recipe.  And, lets not even mention the sweetened condensed milk.  Granola bars are meant to be high calorie snacks to eat while hiking or participating in your sport of choice.  So, if you’re just lounging around the house, think twice before eating half the tray.  (You know who you are.  Mmmhmmm… I’m talking to you, honey.)

Coconut Granola Bars
makes 1 10 x 15″ baking sheet

2 cups rolled oats
2 cups grated coconut (fresh or unsweetened)
1 cup dried currants (or cranberries)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup olive oil (choose a light and fruity one)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, finely ground

Combine dry ingredients thoroughly.  Add wet ingredients and stir vigorously.  Brush 10 x 15″ baking sheet (or jelly roll sheet) with melted butter or olive oil.  Press mixture evenly over the baking sheet.

Bake at 325 degrees for 45-50 minutes.
