instructions:

  1. combine oats, cereal, baking soda, salt, flax seed, and stevia and mix well.  add the PB, 3 tbsp coconut oil, vanilla, truvia nectar to a small bowl and microwave in 15 sec increments until the PB has melted down.  combine the dry and wet ingredients and mix well.  add 1/4 of the chocolate chips to the batter and mix one last time
  2. line a 9x9 pan with saran wrap or wax paper then wet your fingers.  dump the batter into the lined pan and press it down HARD until level and flat.  pop the pan into the fridge for 30 minutes
  3. lift chilled batter out of the square pan (using the overlapping sides of the saran wrap) and lay it on a flat surface.  with a warm knife, cut into 9 squares (or however many you'd like really; the nutritional stats are for 9 squares though
  4. melt the remaining chocolate chips and 1 tbsp of coconut oil in the microwave in 15 sec increments.  mix well until combined.  place a pretzel over the top of every one of the granola squares and drizzle each one with the melted chocolate
  5. put back into freezer or 2 hours minimum.  overnight is best!
