Granola Bars

I'm a big fan of granola bars for breakfast so I figured that I'd try making a homemade batch. These bars taste a bit different than the store bought ones, but in a good way!

2 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup wheat germ
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup honey
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, brown sugar, wheat germ, cinnamon, flour and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the honey, egg, oil and vanilla. Mix well using your hands. Add the chocolate chips and mix. Pat the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes until the bars turn golden at the edges. Cool for 5 minutes then cut into bars while still warm. Don't let the bars cool completely before cutting or they will be too hard to cut.
