  • Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper. Spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.

  • In small saucepan, combine honey and coconut oil. Cook over medium heat until bubbly. Turn the heat off and stir in the vanilla.
  • Pour honey mixture into the oats and stir until well combined.
  • Stir in pepitas and dried cranberries if adding. Once the mixture has cooled slightly, add in chocolate chips.
