Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars


"These granola bars pack well for mid-day snacks or hiking trips. Vary the ingredients for variety or to make them more wholesome. I make two versions--this one if for my sweet-tooth husband--the other for myself, contains 1 c. dried fruit and nuts instead of chocolate chips and marshmallows. Be creative!"
