    What’s the point in making a healthy breakfast bar if you add chocolate chips?  This recipe does not sound healthy to me.

      Well I think the point is that it’s a nice (and cheaper) alternative to many of the bars available commercially, many of which are loaded with additives and/or HFCS. I would consider this a great “transition” food for those beginning to move towards a cleaner, less processed diet. And dark chocolate does have certain health benefits!
