Preheat the oven to 350°F. Combine all ingredients except chips in a high-quality food processor, and blend until completely smooth. (First choice tool is a food processor,second choice tool is Vitamix.).

Optional: sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top.
Cook the bars for about 15 minutes. You want them to look underdone when you take them from the oven. Let cool, then pat down with a pancake spatula. Refrigerate overnight.
The bars will have firmed up and are now ready to cut and eat. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
