No Bake Granola Bars

These were pretty good mine took awhile to harden but once they did the taste was honestly better than I had expected.

2 cups old fashioned oats
½ cup shredded coconut
½ cup sliced almonds
¼ cup brown sugar
½ cup agave
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
2 tsp. vanilla extract
½ tsp. salt
dark chocolate chips
Spray an 8x8" dish with cooking spray.
Preheat oven to 325ยบ F.
On a baking sheet, spread out oats, coconut and almonds.
Place in the oven and toast for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown (not burned!).
In the meantime, combine the brown sugar, agave, coconut oil, vanilla and salt in a medium sized saucepan.
Cook over medium heat until the brown sugar has completely dissolved.
Pour toasted oat mixture into saucepan with brown sugar mixture and stir together until every morsel is coated and combined.
Pour into prepared baking dish and press down so it's even on top and push down to make it stay together.
Let cool completely.
When cooled, cut into bars.
Melt some dark chocolate chip in a small bowl.
Stir and then add in some Nutella (I eyeballed the measurements).
Lightly drizzle over granola bars and enjoy!
