Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and lightly grease a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray.
In a VERY large bowl, whisk together melted coconut oil, applesauce, honey, and vanilla.
Add in oats, granola, flour, flaxseed meal, baking soda, salt, and chocolate chips/chunks.
Stir to combine.
Dump mixture into prepared pan.
Grease your hands with cooking spray and press the mixture FIRMLY into the prepared pan.
Bake in pre-heated oven for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and gently press down with the back of a lightly greased metal spatula. This helps keep the bars intact.
Sprinkle with Maldon sea salt, if desired.
Let cool COMPLETELY before cutting into bars. I let cool at room temperature for an hour, or until pan wasn’t hot, then covered them with saran wrap and threw them in to fridge to cool completely.
Cut them into 16 bars and store them in an airtight container at room temperature, in the fridge, or in the freezer.
Take 5 seconds to . We greatly appreciate it!
