Homemade granola bars

I love granola bars, but I don't always love all the preservatives in them Mac not all versions are gluten free.

One day while blog surfing I found a great recipe that looked worth a try. I made a few changes and it had been a standard go to recipe ever since then.

4 tbsp butter
1/4 brown sugar
1/4 honey
1cup instant oatmeal
2cups granola (I love "Kind" granola it's gluten free & comes in several delicious flavors)
1/2 cup chocolate chips 

Melt butter, honey, and brown sugar in saucepan.

Remove from heat. Add oatmeal and granola. Stir until thoroughly coated.

Fold in chocolate chips.

Lightly spray an 8 by 8 pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Pour mixture into pan and firmly pat flat.

Refrigerate for several hours until firm.
Gently loosen edges and flip out onto a cutting board.
Cut into bars or squares.
Wrap individually in saran wrap (or I like to store 2 a piece in the small snack size ziplock bags.)

Homemade granola bars store best and keep longer in the refrigerator.
