No-Bake Cinnamon Chip Granola Bars

From: Jenn@eatcakefordinner


2 c. quick-cooking oats

1 c. rice krispies cereal

2 Tbl. coconut oil (or canola oil)

1/4 c. + 2 Tbl. honey

1/4 c. light brown sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 c. cinnamon chips


Combine oats and cereal in a medium bowl; set aside.  In a small saucepan, heat coconut oil, honey and brown sugar until the sugar is dissolved.  Bring to a boil and remove from heat.  Stir in the vanilla extract and pour over the oat mixture.  Stir until everything is evenly coated.  Stir in the cinnamon chips; reserving a few for topping.  Press mixture into a 8''x8'' baking pan (or similar size).  Press the reserved cinnamon chips into the top of the granola bar.  Allow to set for several hours or until firm.  Cut into 10 bars.  If taking in lunches, wrap individual bars in plastic wrap.  


Jenn's Notes: If cinnamon chips aren't your thing, you can substitute with white chocolate chips, regular chocolate chips or peanut butter chips.
