Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or unsalted butter (I've tried and love both)
    Health Foods;Baking
  • 1/4 cup honey
    Nut butters, Jams, and Honey
  • 1/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
    Baking
  • 2 cups quick oats
    Cereal
  • 1 1/4 cups Rice Krispies cereal
    Cereal
  • 1/8 tsp salt
    Spices and Seasonings
  • 3 Tbsp mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
    Baking
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    Baking

Steps

  • Add coconut oil or unsalted butter, brown sugar and honey to a 2 quart microwave safe bowl and heat mixture in microwave on HIGH power for 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat and stir (stir until butter is melted if using butter), then return to microwave and heat on HIGH power 1 minute longer if using coconut oil and 1 1/2 minutes longer if using butter. Carefully remove from microwave and blend in vanilla, then add in quick oats and stir until evenly coated. Fold in Rice Krispies and toss well to evenly coat, then firmly press mixture into one side of a buttered baking sheet with buttered hands (I used a regular sized cookie sheet and just pressed it them into 5-inch long bars using about 1/3 of the baking sheets width) then sprinkle top with chocolate chips and press into bars.
  • Transfer to freezer and chill 10 minutes, then remove and cut into 9 bars. Store in an airtight container. Recipe Source: adapted slightly from Lauren's Latest and Rachel Ray
