Honey Chip Granola Bars Recipe

Honey Chip Granola Bars Recipe

I first tried these not-too-sweet bars at my mother-in-law's house. A marshmallow, honey and peanut butter mixture is delicious over crunchy cereal, oats and nuts. Be sure to let the bars cool a bit before pressing the mini chocolate chips on top or they'll melt. -RosAnna Troyer Millersburg, Ohio
