I used to buy breakfast bars all the time for kids for snacking. I found the price is going up day by day and tried to do by my own. This way I save a lot of money. So I calculated the expenses for this including labour and electricity too and still for that money I can buy only few packets from the shop. This way I make a big batch of bars and it stays out in room temperature more than a months time too.
How many bars you can cut from this recipe depends on how thick your slice and the baking tray that you are using. If like ver sweet slices add chocolate chips or sugar. For me the sugar in it is well enough.
Look at the end results in the video. To achieve the look like that leave in oven after switching off until it cools. So slowly it cooks the rest with out burning the slice.
Always the extras you can freeze in snack bags. You can grab them when you need them directly to the lunch box and it will be ready for you in few hours. If not take several out and thaw in fridge.
