Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons Challenge Salted Butter
  • cup honey
  • ½ cup packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup crispy rice cereal
  • ½ cup sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt
  • cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper or greased foil.
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter, honey, and brown sugar over medium low heat until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  • Set butter mixture aside for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mostly cooled.
  • Meanwhile, combine oats, rice cereal, almond, flour and salt in a large bowl.
  • Add butter mixture to bowl and stir until combined with the dry ingredients. (Mixture will be very sticky.) Stir in the mini chocolate chips.
  • Press the mixture into the prepared baking pan, compacting it into an even layer.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes until edges just start to turn brown.
  • Let granola bars cool completely in the pan. Then use parchment or foil to lift bars out of the pan and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into squares or bars.
  • Store granola bars in an airtight container at room temperature for a week or more. The bars also freeze well.
Note: It's important to let the butter mixture cool before combining all of the granola bar ingredients so that the chocolate chips don't melt.
