Ingredients for 12 servings

2 cups rolled oats

1 scant cup pecans, chopped

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1/4 cup dark brown sugar

1/3 cup honey

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preparation

1.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x9 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. Put oats and pecans on a baking sheet and toast in oven for roughly 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. While oats are toasting, combine oil, brown sugar, honey, cinnamon, salt and vanilla in a medium saucepan on medium heat until brown sugar is dissolved. Once the oats are done, turn oven down to 300 degrees F and add oats to the sugar mixture and stir to combine, adding the coconut. Press mixture into prepared pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and press them into oat mixture (this could also be done post baking for chips to hold their shape). Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack until firm and cool to the touch. Turn out onto a cutting board and slice into desired shape. Store granola bars individually in plastic wrap at room temperature.
