    The honey and brown sugar really helps with keeping the bars together. Chocolate chips added to the mixture help, too. We add some to the granola mixture while it is still warm. You might notice some of the chocolate melts this is totally okay, it acts as extra glue, holding the bars together. After that, we add more chocolate chips to the top these don t melt. Hello Guys, i have a question instead of a comment. Can you sub coconut oil for butter in this recipe? And seeds for nuts? I have a very restricted diet. Thank you in advance for your response
