place 1st four ingredients on cookie sheet and toast in oven for 15 minutes.
While that is toasting, add all other ingredients in large bowl and mix when complete.
When oats and nuts are done toasting, let cool for 10 minutes so they don't melt the chocolate chips. While they cool, grease a 9x11 baking dish and line bottom with parchment paper or foil.
mix all ingredients until well blended. spoon into baking dish and press down until flat and smooth (you will want to oil your hands so they dont stick).
bake for 25 minutes. let cool for 5 minutes and cut along sides with knife or spatula and dump out onto a cutting board (parchment/foil will make it not stick to bottom). Cut into 12 bars. if they break apart, mold them back together. these will harden when fully cooled.
