Chewy Granola Bars


-2 1/2 Cups Oats

-1/2 cup Almonds

-1/4 cup Honey

-2 Tablespoons Butter

-2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil

-1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla

-1/4 Teaspoon Salt

-1/2 Cup dried fruit (Cranberries, Raisins, Apricots, Dates)

-1/4 Cup + 2 Tablespoons cacao nips or mini chocolate chips


Chop almonds. Spread almonds and oats on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper. Toast the almonds and oats for 5 Minutes in a 350 degree oven. Stir and bake another 3 minutes. Combine butter, coconut oil, honey, vanilla and salt in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until butter and oil are melted. Mix in oats and almonds. Let cool for 5 Minutes. Add fruit and 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. Stir to combine. The chocolate chips will melt slightly, but this helps the bars hold together. Transfer mixture to a parchment paper line 9x13 pan and press firmly with a spatula or damp finger tips. Scatter remaining 2 Tablespoons of chips over pressed granola and use a spatula to press into top. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours. Remove from pan and peel away the parchment paper.
