Notes

Bars can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days if sealed in an airtight container. They are best served warm.
 
To make this recipe dairy-free, substitute butter with avocado oil or melted coconut oil, substitute milk with oat, almond, or soy milk, and substitute the chocolate chips for any non-dairy mix in of your choice (I like dried fruit).
