Granola Bars

This recipe I found on They are really good! The first batch I made I didnt add enough butter so it didnt stick together like bars. It was more like chunky granola cereal. Which it tasted good but just wasnt in a bar form. So this time I made sure to add the exact amount of butter the recipe calls for. They turned out great!!

4 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease one 9x13 inch pan. In a large mixing bowl combine the oats, flour, baking soda, vanilla, butter or margarine, honey and brown sugar. Stir in the 2 cups assorted chocolate chips, raisins, nuts etc. Lightly press mixture into the prepared pan. Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes then cut into bars. Let bars cool completely in pan before removing or serving.

I added regular chocolate chips instead of mini because I didnt have any mini and they worked just fine. I also added sliced almonds to it. They are really yummy!
