Grab a parent and combine the brown sugar and honey in a pot.
Heat the mixture on low and stir for 2 minutes, or until the mixture is smooth.
Mix in oil, salt, and vanilla. Next add the chocolate chips and stir until the chips have completely melted. Then turn off the stove.
When the wet mixture in the pot is still warm, pour it into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until the wet and dry ingredients are all combined.
Place a sheet of wax paper into the glass baking pan so that the paper hangs over the sides of the pan.
Pour the mixture on top of the wax paper in the glass pan.
Use your hands to press the granola firmly into the pan. Wait a few hours for the granola to completely cool. (You can put the pan in the refrigerator to cool it more quickly.)
When the granola bars are fully cooled, carefully lift the wax paper out of the glass pan. Then ask an adult to help cut the snack into bars or bite-size squares.
PLANET PROTECTOR TIP
Wrap your granola bars in paper or cloth instead of plastic wrap for an on-the-go treat.
