Back to school for the kids means back to snack making for you. By dedicating the time on a weekend to whip up a batch of these chocolate pretzel bars will mean one less thing you have to worry about during the week.
1. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add quick oats, stirring often, until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Set aside.
2. Stir unsalted butter, creamed honey and packed brown sugar in a large saucepan set over medium-high. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and stir in oats, puffed-rice cereal, chopped pretzels and flax seeds until combined.
3. Scrape into a greased 8” x 8” baking dish. Smooth top, then sprinkle with chocolate chips. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 min. Cut into bars. Let stand at room temperature 5 minutes before serving.
Keep well-refrigerated in a re-sealable plastic bag for up to one week.
