Homemade Granola Bars

My two monkey are ALWAYS snacking!
I saw this post on Pinterest and knew Peighton and Preston would gobble them up.

They were really quick to make too!

Chocolate Granola Bars

1/2 cup peanut butter
 1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup butter
1 cup oats
2 T wheat germ
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

1.  Melt  the butter, peanut butter and honey in a pot over medium to low heat, stirring constantly.  Turn off the burner when melted.
2.  Pour in the cup of oats and the wheat germ.  Stir til combined.
3.  Wait til it cools and stir in the coconut and chocolate chips.  Or, if you’re impatient with things like this, like I am, go ahead and dump it all right in.  The result will be a more uniform chocolate taste.
4.  Pour into foil-lined 8 X 8 pan and stick in the fridge.
5. Once cooled, flip out onto cutting board  and cut to the size you like.

Peighton gave them a "Two thumbs Up!"
Preston thinks he needs a bite everytime we're in the kitchen!

Mine never really "set up" though.
I think when we make these again I will cut the butter in half. They just seemed to have too much gooey-ness about them to harden up like I think they should.
