- Since the granola mixture will be warm,the chocolate chips will, for the most part, melt. This createsa chocolatey-style granola bar. If you wait for the mixture tocool down even slightly, it will harden too much to incorporatethe chips into it. Also, try other flavors of chips such as milkor white chocolate.
- For variation use any combination of driedfruits such dried cherries, cranberries, apricots, etc.
