These are soft and chewy and will keep for a week and are oh so easy to make. They sure beat those awful granola bars in the store. Instead of chocolate chips you can add 3/4 cup of dried fruit or replace 1/2 cup of oats with shredded coconut.

2/3 cup butter
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp salt
1-1/2 Tbsp flour
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup almond flakes
2/3 cup pure chocolate chips

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, partially melt the butter in the microwave.
  • Stir it smooth.
  • Add the butter, honey, egg, vanilla, salt, and flour until completely combined.
  • Add brown sugar and mix well.
  • Add oats and the almond flakes and mix well.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Transfer the mixture to a sheet of parchment paper. The dough will be sticky.
  • Place another parchment paper on the top and press it into shape by hand and roller to fit the prepared pan.
  • Transfer to the prepared baking pan and press down, making sure the surface is flat and even.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until set and edges are lightly browned.
  • Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.
  • Recipe yields 10 bars.
