Oatmeal Cranberry Snack bars

 Cranberry is a wonderfruit with many healing properties. We usually make cranberry sauce during festive season as fresh cranberries are available easily. Apart from that dried cranberries are available any time of the year and we should try to use it as a part of a healthy diet. Plenty of breakfast bars are available in shops instead it's very easy to make at home.


Quick Cooking Rolled oats - 200 gms
Cane Sugar - 1 cup 
Whole milk - 1 cup
Dried Cranberries - 1 cup
Butter - 30 gms


   Coat a baking tray with butter. Mix all the ingredients and transfer it to the tray.

Baking method:

    Preheat the oven for  250 degrees. Bake the mixure for 20 minutes. Check the oat bars after 15 minutes of baking. If it starts to brown then stop baking. As i have added milk to the mixure it's going to be a bit softer. If it's baked for  longer than needed it will go brown very easily and you can't enjoy the taste of cranberries .This is a low-calorie healthy snack as i've reduced the amount of butter and added milk.
