1. In a large bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, butter, honey, vanilla and salt; mix thoroughly. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts until evenly mixed.
2. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Press down with clean, damp hands to compact evenly.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until brown and crisp. Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from pan by lifting parchment and transfer to a cutting board. Remove parchment and cut into bars.
Variation: You can substitute any kind of chip for the chocolate chips — white chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter, etc.
