  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup crispy rice cereal
  • 1/4 cup salted butter
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons mini chocolate chips


  • Spray a 8x8 pan lightly with cooking spray.
  • Mix your oats and cereal together in a large bowl.
  • In a small saucepan melt butter, brown sugar and honey on medium high heat until melted. Once it begins to bubble change heat to low and stir for 2 minutes.
  • Remove saucepan from burner and stir in your vanilla.
  • Pour your hot mixture over your oats mixture. Stir well. You want to make sure every single piece of oats and cereal is coated.
  • Pour your mixture into your greased pan and push down with spatula to flatten it.
  • Sprinkle chocolate chips over top evenly. Use your spatula to press them down so they are embedded in the bars.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator to set for at least 1 hour, or until firm.
  • Take out and cut into bar sizes. Store in airtight container in refrigerator to keep them fresh.
