Getting My Chocolate Fix

Thankfully, today's kitchen experiment turned out to be yummy, so here you go!!  These are pretty flexible with the amount and type of sweetener and add-ins you use, so feel free to use what you happen to have on hand.  Or happen to have the most of :).

Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

2 c. quick cooking oats
1 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. sucanat
1/4 c. flax meal
1/4 c. shredded coconut
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. chopped nuts
1/2 c. melted butter
1/4 c. honey
2 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
3/4 c. chocolate chips

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter your dish.  (I use a glass 7 x 11, but have used a 9 x 13 in the past and it works, you just have to adjust the baking time.)

2.  In a large bowl, stir together the first 7 ingredients (the dry stuff).  Melt the butter.  Add butter, honey and vanilla to dry ingredients and stir to combine.  Add the egg and stir to combine.  Mix in the chocolate chips.  Press mixture evenly into your buttered baking dish.

3.  Bake 15 to 25 minutes (depending on the size pan you are using) or until the edges are golden brown.

4.  Enjoy!!
