No-Bake Granola Bars

These were really good. My lids loved them and can't wait until I can make some more! My chocolate chips still melted a little even though I put them in the freezer, but they were still good!
No-Bake Granola Bars
1.5 cups rice krispies cereal
1.5 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup brown sugar (unpacked)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup reduced fat peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
Line a 13x9 pan with wax paper, they're chewy and it's easier to get them out. Put the mini chocolate chips in the freezer while you're working, they won't melt as quickly when you add them later on. Add oats and rice krispies to a very large mixing bowl. Heat brown sugar and honey in a saucepan over medium heat until smooth. Add peanut butter and vanilla and stir until everything is combined. It will be a thick brown sauce. Don't let it boil. Remove from heat and pour over oat/cereal mix. Work quickly and stir to combine everything. Add the mini chocolate chips at the very end. Press into baking pan and chill for about 30 minutes until solid. Cut into 16 bars. (I lifted them right out with the wax paper and cut them on a cutting board)

I think I found your blog by googling WW recipes. My husband has lost 40 pounds and I've lost 15. I really appreciate the time you put into sharing the recipes with us :)
