Chewy Granola Chip Bars - 5 Ingredients!

5 Ingredient Granola Bars
     I know I have been saying on many recipes that they are fast and easy, but it needs to be said again for these bars. With only 5 ingredients and a no bake recipe you know they have to be quick!

      I was asked to find some fast and healthy snack for a women's meeting in my church.  I have tried several recipes and a few just weren't what I would call tasty,(of course I am the sugar queen)  but when I found this recipe I knew I had hit the mark!  Wow!  They are soooo good and have healthy ingredients too!   (I am not sure about the peanut butter chips but you can cut down on them or leave them out entirely if you choose.)  

     They are especially easy to make because you can buy granola (in any degree of healthy you desire) and just add it to the mix, pour into a pan, cool and eat!  This makes a great snack for kids who are home for the summer.




Bring the butter, sugar, and honey in a pan to a boil and simmer over medium low heat about 2 minutes.

Add granola and rice cereal and stir until it is well coated.  
Press the mixture in a 11 x 7 inch parchment lined pan.  Sprinkle both flavors of chips over the granola bars and let mixture cool.  Lift the bars out of the pan and cut into long granola bar shapes. enjoy!

Italian Beef Dip

Quick and easy meal

     This is an especially easy dinner. It takes only 5 purchased ingredients and a couple of spices you should already have in you cupboard. Dinner can be on the table in about 15 minutes.  You can use fancy Hoagie Buns or toasted Hamburger buns you have on hand.  Be prepared for a busy day by buying the sliced deli meat and cheese ahead of time and freeze the meat to be pulled out in a pinch.

     So full of flavor your family won't believe you haven't been slaving in the kitchen for hours!

Simmer the first 5 ingredients together in a skillet for about 5 minutes. 


      Remove pepper strips and add beef to heat through.  Butter the top of the buns and place them next to the bottom buns on a cookie sheet. Divide beef between bottom buns and top with cooked pepper and cheese. Place cookie sheet filled with sandwiches under the broiler for a short time until the cheese melts and the tops are toasted.  Serve remaining juice in a small bowl with sandwiches as a dip. 



    Do you have any great quick recipes you could share with us?  I would love to hear from you!!
