This is a super simple, healthy recipe. The taste and texture are amazing!!  Make sure you have plenty of honey on hand, it uses a lot!!

4 cups quick cooking oats
 1/3 cup canola oil 
2/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

 

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread oats on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, stirring a couple of times. Allow oats to cool to room temperature. Combine remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add cooled oats. Spread mixture into a 9×13-inch baking dish that has been sprayed or oiled, pressing down hard to compact it.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool completely and cut into bars.

Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins Sunday, Mar 10 2013 

OK so in my quest for stock piling chocolate yesterday, I purchased a 4 lb bag of mini chips!! Now Im sure I will not have a problem with depleting this item from my stock pile! After all minis can be used in place of regular chips however regular can not be used in place of minis so easily. Both my kids love the mini muffins. I however do not care for the taste of the store bought with all the additives. Nor do I care for the price of those things. I mean come on what do yyou get about 24 bites for about 4 bucks!! Heres my recipe for certainly edible mini muffs This recipe makes  about 65 muffins or 3 boxes of the overpriced wont name the brand lol

3/4 cup sugar

3 teas baking powder
