Homemade granola bars

We consume a lot of granola/müsli bars at our house, our mostly it’s the kids who eat them. Most often they are store bought, but sometimes I like to make them myself, so I know whats in them. They are no way near healthy because of the condensed milk, but there is no other added sugar or fat, only good healthy thing, if you don’t count the chocolate, which you can leave out.
