I've been wanting to make a granola bar for a while and hadn't really found one that was easy, quick and fairly healthy. I was flipping through my Magnolia Table (Volume 2), and found this recipe. I've simplified it a bit - I didn't toast the almonds and oats, so feel free to do that if you like. Here's my review on this bar. I used a more liquid honey - I think this was a mistake. My bars just didn't stick together very well, so when you're making this, be sure to not use liquid honey and don't rush the melting of the ingredients (pretty sure I did) and I think that was my mistake in this recipe. I love the flavour and the combo of ingredients - delish, even though mine was a bit crumbly, I still think it's a pretty good recipe. Oh, and one more thing! When I remake this, I'm using a smaller pan. The 9x12 made a very thin bar and I think I would prefer this to be thicker, more substance.

Let's get to the recipe . . .

Granola Bar

In a saucepan, over medium heat, melt together, stirring often for about 5 minutes
1/2 c. honey
1/4 b. sugar
3 tbsp. unsalted butter (if using salted butter, just omit the salt)
1/4 tsp. salt
Remove from heat and let cool for about 15 minutes.

In a bowl, mix together
2 c. quick oats
1 c. sliced almonds
1 c. unsweetened coconut

Add the wet to the dry, mixing well.

Making sure this isn't too hot (or you'll melt the chocolate chips)
add in
1/4 c. mini chocolate chips.

Press the mixture into a 9x12 baking dish. Make sure you've pressed this firmly!

Sprinkle the top with a few more chocolate chips
Press down again.

Pop into the fridge for a couple of hours.

Cut into pieces and enjoy!
