Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

4 Tbsp
unsalted butter
1/4 c
honey
1/3 c
brown sugar, packed
2 c
quick cooking oats
1 c
puffed rice cereal (like rice crispies)
2 Tbsp
toasted wheat germ
1/2 tsp
vanilla
3-4 Tbsp
mini chocolate chips

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Melt the butter, honey and brown sugar in a small pot over medium. When it starts to bubble, turn the heat to low and let cook for 2 minutes to dissolve the sugar completely. Remove from heat, and add the vanilla.
2
Combine the rice cereal, oats and wheat germ in a bowl. Pour the butter/sugar mixture over the cereal/oat mixture. Stir to combine. Add in 2-3 Tbsp of the chocolate chips.
3
Pour the mixture into a lightly greased pan and press firmly. I like mine thick, so I use a jelly roll pan and pack the mixture up to the rim. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on the top and press slightly into the bars.
4
Let cool, and cut into bars. Store in an airtight container or wrap individual bars. Enjoy!
