Triple Chocolate Granola Bars

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1/3 cup honey

2 cups old-fashioned oats (gluten free, if possible)

1/2 cup flax seed meal

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tbsp. water

1/3 cup white chocolate chips

2 tsp. butter

Method:

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9×13 inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on the ends for easy removal and cleanup. Grease parchment paper.

In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, melt butter, sugar, cocoa powder and honey together. Stir until sugar is dissolved and mixture is smooth. Let cool.

In a large bowl, stir together the oats, flax seed meal, chocolate chips and salt.

Add butter mixture to oat mixture and stir until thoroughly combined. Spread mixture evenly in pan and press down firmly. Use the flat-bottom of a measuring cup if you have one.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until set. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes (they will be very soft), then lift bars out using edges of parchment. Let cool for another 15 minutes, or until starting to firm up. Cut into bars using a very sharp knife and let cool completely.

Melt white chocolate and butter together in a bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water (don’t let bottom of bowl touch water). Stir until smooth. Spoon into a small Ziploc bag with the tip cut off one corner. Squeeze white chocolate mixture out of the hole in a zig zag pattern over the cooled bars. Let set.
