Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

We are loving these snacks at our house. My kids like them, my husband likes having them for breakfast, and I like knowing that they are eating something fairly healthy. It's cheaper than buying granola bars every week too!

Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup rice krispy cereal
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp mini chocolate chips

In a large bowl, stir oats and cereal together. Set aside. In a small pot, melt butter, honey, and sugar over medium high heat until it comes to a bubble. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 2 minutes. Pour in vanilla and stir till combined. Pour over dry ingredients and mix well to moisten all ingredients. Pour into lightly greased small jelly roll pan and press out to be about 3/4 inch in thickness. (I just press mine into one side of a cookie sheet.) Press down firmly so mixture will stick together. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips and press down lightly. Cool on a counter top  at room temperature for 2 hours or until chocolate chips are set before cutting into bars. Store in plastic wrap or baggies. 
Makes about 8 granola bars
