Ummm Ummm Chewy Granola Bars

I have tried a few different granola bar recipes and this is by far the tastiest and easiest I have come up with.  I love that you can add just about anything your imagination can come up with too... So much fun and pretty healthy snack.

I used white chocolate in these.  I must say I like milk chocolate much more.

You will need:
4 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups your favorite chocolate chips
1 cup your favorite peanut butter

Preheat oven to 325.

Mix together all ingredients except chocolate chips.  I've found that a large metal spoon works great to work the honey and peanut butter into the dry ingredients.  Once it is well incorporated stir in the chocolate morsels.

Generously spray a 9x13 pan and firmly press mixture into the pan. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until light brown.  It must begin to brown.

Let cool for about ten minutes or so and cut into bars.

I just put these in the oven. I must say, I just about ate them all before I even baked them!!! I can't WAIT to get them out and in my tummy. Mmmmmm. I also threw in some nuts, and substituted the chocolate chips for Reese's because we were out of the chocolate chips.
