I cant even imagine how many thousands of granola bars I ate as a kid. They were my favorite childhood snack, though admittedly it was probably because they were more like dessert bars, with flavors like Cookies and Cream, Smores, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. Whoops.


Dry ingredients
Old fashioned rolled oats 4 Cup (64 tbs)
Whole wheat flour 1 1/4 Ounce (1/4 cup)
Shredded unsweeted coconut 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Packed brown sugar 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Semisweet chocolate chips 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Kosher salt 1/2 Teaspoon
Wet ingredients
Grapeseed oil 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
Honey 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)



1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.


3. In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, coconut, brown sugar, chocolate chips, and salt. Toss until combined.

4. In another bowl, whisk together the oil, vanilla, and honey until smooth and combined.

5. Pour wet mixture over the dry ingredients, and toss until the wet ingredients have evenly coated all of the oats.

6. Dump the granola mixture onto the parchment lined baking sheet and shape it into a large rectangle that's about 9x13 inches, and about 1 inch thick.

7. Pop in oven and bake for 40 minutes or until it's golden and dry to the touch.

8. Cool the granola on the baking sheet for at least 10 minutes, then cut into small bars with a really sharp knife.


9. Serve and enjoy!


The bars will keep fresh for several weeks if wrapped individually in parchment or wax paper.
