Chocolate Covered Granola Bar Bark

I was recently asked to create a few recipes for CA Milk. The client asked for recipes that pair well with a cold glass of milk. Totally my kind of program! What pairs better with milk than granola & chocolate?

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time10 minsCook Time25 minsTotal Time35 mins
 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
 1 cup unsweetened coconut flake
 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
 2/3 cup honey
 1/4 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
 1/4 teaspoon salt
 1 bag (12 ounces) semi sweet chocolate chips
1

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit with the rack in the middle. Prepare an 8X12 inch pan with parchment paper.

2

Combine oats & coconut and place them in the pan.

3

In a small sauce pan combine butter, honey, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon & salt. Bring to a boil & pour onto the oat mixture. Combine throughly, make sure all the oats are covered with the honey mixture. Press into the pan with the back of a spoon. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the granola is golden brown.

4

Melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Pour the chocolate onto the granola. Let the granola cool to room temperature then chill in the fridge or freezer so the chocolate firms up.

5

Remove from the fridge & let sit for a few minutes until just soft enough to break apart with your hands.
