Hubby and I escaped last month for a weekend at the Fairmont Banff Springs. It was a much needed break and the perfect place to sneak off to for a couple days.
Willow Stream Spa was amazing! From the waterfall treatment whirlpools and mineral pool to the relaxing massage, everything was perfect. With our package, we had access to the spa for two days which was a real treat. In the co-ed resting lounge, we sipped on flavoured water and snacked on housemade granola bars.
These granola bars were fantastic! They were chewy and packed with nuts, seeds and coconut. Even after we came home, I kept thinking about these morsels of goodness.
The Fairmont graciously gave me the recipe. It was clear why these were so delicious – condensed milk! When I made the bars last week, I divided the recipe by 4. I knew it was a hit for Q when he kept sneaking some from the kitchen when he thought no one was looking!
Willow Stream Granola Bars
200g sesame seeds
500g rolled oats
100g pumpkin seeds
150g sliced almonds
675mL sweetened condensed milk
Combine all the ingredients together. Mix until combined and holding together. Press down firmly in a sheet pan and roll with a rolling pin to pack; the pan should be smooth. Bake at 175 degrees Celsius for 12 to 16 minutes.
