Ok, now that you’ve made your own granola using my recipes for easy honey-pecan granola I thought I’d show you a fun way to share your granola with friends. This makes a great gift around the holidays but it’s cute any time of the year.
Good Life Bars (also know as Nancy Bars at Buzz Bakery) are a homemade, baked granola bar that combines dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, granola, coconut and almonds with condensed milk. Just bake, cool cut and enjoy. Of course you can always give the finished granola bars as a gift but this presentation fits perfectly into a 1 qt mason jar, revealing all the ingredients beautifully layered.
Good Life Bar Jar
1/2 Cup slivered almonds
1/2 Cup sweetened coconut
1/2 Cup dried cranberries
3/4 Cup granola
1/2 Cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 Cups Quick Cook Oats
1) Layer each ingredient into a 1 qt glass jar, pressing down each layer gently.
2) Seal jar and attach recipe card with a piece of twine or ribbon. Feel free to use the text below on the recipe card you attach to the jar. Just copy and paste the instructions, then print onto card stock and cut out.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
10.5 oz Sweetened Condensed Milk • Mini Muffin Pan
HOW TO MAKE YOUR BITES or BARS
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix together jar ingredients in a medium size bowl. Add condensed milk and stir to combine. Spray mini muffin tins well with non stick cooking spray. Place mix into the individual cups, allowing to slightly dome over the top of each cup, and bake for 10-15 minutes until just slightly golden on edges. Allow bites to fully cool before serving. Alternatively spray an 8″ cake pan, fill with the mixture and bake at 325 degrees 15-20 minutes until golden and set. Cool fully and cut into wedges. Store in an air tight container up to 1 week.
