Bakeless granola 

Method:
1. Using a baking tray lined with parchment or silver foil, toast  oats along with chopped almonds, for about 6 minutes at 350 F.
Take out of oven and stir them around, making sure they don't burn. Put Put them back in oven for another 10 minutes, remove  as they get light toasted. 
2.Pour these toasted oats almonds into a mixing bowl.
3.Heat a small pan add butter and melt it, over low heat. Add light brown sugar and vanilla essence ,close burner.
4.Add this melted butter to oats mixture.At this point you can go ahead and add some of the chocolate chips, don't worry it will melt and help to hold the bars.Mix in the nuts and coconut flakes.
I prefer to using a square baking pan, line it with silver foil, or parchment paper.
5.Pour  granola mixture into this  square pan, and press with a spatula to give it an even surface. Sprinkle the top with remaining chocolate chips. Cover with foil and refrigerate for at least an hour.
Remove the foil, and cut out even sized bars to enjoy!!
