Turn your oven on to 375. Find a 9 x 13 pan and line it with parchment paper. Now spray that paper with a thin shot of cooking spray. Now grab a food processor or Ninja!!! and add in 1/2 cup powdered/confectioner’s sugar.

Next add in some butter chopped into small pieces… this recipe didn’t even start out kinda healthy did it… sorry…

Add in some flour and salt… give that a good pulse. Also add in some oatmeal and pulse again.

I took this before the oatmeal was in there but basically it will look like coarse meal.

Press that into your pan with your fingers…

Bake it for about 20 minutes or until it’s nice and golden.

Sprinkle on some chocolate chips…

and then drizzle on a can of sweetened condensed milk…

and some sweetened coconut… pop that in the oven for another 20 minutes…

DSC_0151
and voila!! Well… then you need to put the whole pan on a cooling rack to let them cool completely before cooking… then you’re set…

    These look fantastic. I am not a big fan of peanuts but I know my husband and his co-workers would go crazy over these bars.
