Chocolate Granola Bars

My kids and I are big snackers. I like to try to have healthy snacks laying around the kitchen for us to eat and was excited to try this recipe for homemade granola bars. They turned out great and taste great too! They won't last long!

1/2 c. natural peanut butter
1/3 c. local honey
1/4 c. unsalted butter
1 c. oats (not quick oats)
2 T. wheat germ
1/2 c. coconut
1/2 c. chocolate chips (Mini work best, but it doesn’t really matter.)

Melt the butter, peanut butter and honey in a pot over medium to low heat, stirring constantly. Turn off the burner when melted. Pour in the cup of oats and the wheat germ. Stir until combined.
Wait until it cools and stir in the coconut and chocolate chips. Or, if you’re impatient with things like this, like I am, go ahead and dump it all right in. The result will be a more uniform chocolate taste.

Pour into foil-lined 8 X 8 pan and stick in the fridge. Once cooled, flip out onto cutting board and cut to the size you like.
