5 Ingredient Granola Bars

These granola bars are so easy to make and they are a kid friendly favorite around here!

I usually keep a few packed in my bag for a quick healthy snack on the go!

You can modify the recipe to include flax seeds, shredded coconut, chopped nuts, or whatever you have on hand.

Here’s the recipe:

1 1/2 cups rolled oats

1/2 cup peanut (or almond) butter

1/4 cup honey

1 Tbsp vanilla

Handful of chocolate chips or other mix-in (we use the milk chocolate from Guittard)

Mix ingredients until blended. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Flatten the mixture across (The recipe will only cover halfway).

You want them to be pretty thick so they don’t fall apart. Fold the parchment paper in half and pack the mixture in.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Cut into 12 bars.

Healthy Crockpot Chili

There’s nothing better than coming home to a warm crockpot meal after a crisp fall day. 🍂💛🥘

This recipe is so quick and easy! Prep time is less than 5 minutes and it’s ready to eat as soon as it’s heated through which can be sped up on the stovetop or it can simmer all day in the crockpot.

It’s healthy and it’s full of flavor! My kids even love it because we use mild Rotel so it’s not spicy at all.

{RECIPE}

•Brown 1lb. ground turkey. Season with 1 Tbsp chili powder, 1 tsp garlic powder, and add one chopped onion.

•Add to the crockpot: ground turkey and onion, 1 can corn, 1 can black beans, 1 can black eyed peas (or kidney beans), 1 can diced green chilies, 1 can rotel, 1 large can tomato sauce, 1 can stewed tomatoes.

•Simmer on low for 4-6 hours or until heated through. Makes 10 servings
