 These bars are super easy to make.  I like to wrap individually for picnics or lunches.  See the picture on the following videos.

3 c. quick cooking oats
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
3 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 c. coconut
1 c. sliced almonds or chopped pecans
1 c. mini chocolate chips
½ c. dried cranberries or raisins

Preheat oven to 350˚.  Grease a 13 x 9 pan.  In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients until until well-blended.  (It may be helpful to use your hands)  Press into prepared pan.  Bake 20-25 minutes, depending on how crunchy you want bars.  (Lightly browned just around the edges will yield a moist, chewy bar).  Let cool 5 minutes; cut into squares; cool completely before serving.
