Homemade Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

I have been experimenting with making granola bars lately, and this latest recipe has become a favorite.  The granola bars are chewy, sweet, and easy to make.  My boys love to have one (or two) as an after-school snack.

I love that these bars are so easy to make.  Simply mix all the ingredients together, put them in the baking pan, and pop them in the oven until done.  Honestly, the hardest part about making these delicious granola bars, is waiting for them to cool, so you can cut and enjoy them.

Now for this super simple and delicious recipe...

I hope you love this recipe as much as we do! 

 *Note - I had a couple readers tell me they felt the granola bars were a little thin for their taste. We think this recipe results in the perfect thickness of granola bar for us, but if you like a thicker granola bar, simply adapt and put the granola bars in a 9X9 square pan, or whatever size pan will give you the thickness you desire. You may need to bake a few minutes longer, depending on the thickness of the bars.
