Mix the oats, cereal, instant breakfast powder, peanut butter and ⅓ cup honey together.
Gradually add a little more honey until the mixture starts to come together.
Add ¼ cup of the chocolate chips and mix in.
Line an 8 x 8 inch baking pan with parchment or wax paper, leaving a bit overhanging.
Press the mixture into the pan. Apply pressure with the back of a spoon so all the ingredients are compacted.
Cover the pan with aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight.
Lift the tray of power bars out of the pan by the corners of the parchment paper. Carefully with a sharp knife cut 10 evenly sized power bars.
Arrange the bars on a cookie sheet leaving a space in between each bar. Melt the remaining ½ cup chocolate chips with the solid shortening in the microwave by heating at 10 then 5 second increments until the chips have melted completely. Do not over heat!
Spread a thin layer of melted chocolate over one side of each power bar.
Turn the bars over and drizzle with more melted chocolate if desired.
Allow chocolate to harden completely before wrapping in wax paper.
Store wrapped power bars in an airtight container.
