Preheat oven to 350F.
Lightly grease a 9x13" pan and line with parchment paper. Leave extra paper hanging on either end of pan to make lifting the granola bars easier.* Set aside.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and add oats. Spread evenly and place in preheated oven. Toast oats for 7 minutes, then remove to stir the oats around, and return to the oven for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from oven.
In a small pot on the stove over medium heat, warm honey and coconut oil until oil has melted. set aside.
In a large bowl, combine well toasted oats, coconut, 3 tablespoons of the chocolate chips, and salt.
Add warmed honey + oil and using a spatula, mix very well until all ingredients are fully combined.
Next, dump granola mix onto prepared pan and using same spatula, spread mixture evenly, firmly pressing as you go. Add last 1 tablespoon of chocolate chips and press them into granola.
Place in preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes*
Remove from oven and let cool completely before handling - or bars will become loose granola!
Once cooled and set, remove from pan and cut into even pieces. Store leftovers in a lidded container at room temp or in the fridge for a crispier bar.
