How to make Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

To make this, you will need:

  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 3/4 cups rice krispies cereal
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips, divided

To make the bars, preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 9×9 pan with parchment paper.

In a saucepan, melt butter. Add brown sugar and honey and stir to combine. Remove from heat.

In a large bowl, combine, the oats, rice krispies, and hemp seeds. Add the honey mixture and toss to combine. Let cool for a couple of minutes and then stir in the chocolate chips.

Firmly press the mixture into the pan. Bake for 15 minutes.* Let cool completely and then refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours before cutting into bars. Keep refrigerated.

That’s it! The result will be an gooey, soft granola bar. For a firmer bar, pop the sliced bars back in the oven and bake for 10 more minutes.

Hope you enjoy these bars!
