These homemade gluten free chocolate chip oat granola bars are chewy and delicious. They are a healthy granola bar with oatmeal. These are the best nut free bars that are so easy to make! 



3 cups Gluten Free Rolled Oats
1 cup Rice Crisp Cereal
2/3 cup Brown Rice Flour
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
2/3 cup Honey
1/3 cup Coconut Oil, melted
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper. Let the paper overhang on the sides so you can take the bars out easily.

In a large mixing bowl mix together the oats, rice crisps, brown rice flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, sea salt and baking soda.

In a measuring cup melt the coconut oil in the microwave. Add the honey and vanilla to the melted coconut oil. Stir together and then pour over the dry ingredients. 

Mix the dry ingredients with the honey mixture until thoroughly covered. Add the chocolate chips and blend in to the mixture. 

Pour the mixture into your 9x13 baking dish. Press the bars evenly into the dish with the bottom of the measuring cup or a drinking glass. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the bars are golden brown.

Take the bars out of the oven and then carefully press them again with the measuring cup or a drinking glass. This step is key in the bars sticking together!

Let the bars cool for 10 minutes and then lift them out of the baking dish.

Place the bars on a cooling rack and let them cool completely before cutting them.


If you don't have mini chocolate chips you can use regular chocolate chips, but the smaller chips are easier to press into the bars.
