What you need:

1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup salted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips + more for topping

How to make them:
Place rolled oats to a medium bowl. Set aside. In a small sauce pan melt butter, brown sugar, vanilla and honey. Once melted pour over rolled oats and mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chips. They might melt slightly and that is good! Helps hold the bars together better.
Place mixture into an 8×8″ greased baking dish. Using a spoon press down into pan to pack the granola bars. Refrigerate overnight for best results. Store in fridge.
