Granola Bar - The Healthy Crunch!

Ever since I started to work again, I have been in search of such finger food recipes. These days I have an early breakfast, before rushing to office. But by around 11, my tummy starts growling again. I found these home-made granola bars prefect for mid-morning snacks, all the more happy to find that my kids love them too!!


Oats - 1 cup
Crushed Corn flakes - 1/2 cup
Raw sugar - 2 tbsp
Chopped almonds - 6-8
Pitted and chopped dates - 8 - 10
Walnuts - 2-3, chopped finely
Raisins - 2 tbsp
Honey - 2 tbsp
Water - 2 tbsp


1. In a bowl, mix together oats, corn flakes, almonds, dates, walnuts & raisins.
2. Heat a non-stick pan, and dry roast this mixture till a nice aroma comes. Keep them aside.
3. In the same pan, add butter. When it melts add sugar and add water slowly (if its too hot, it might splutter). When sugar melts, add the dry-roasted mixture and mixture whole thing together to form a wet mixture. Towards the end add honey and do a taste test. Add more honey/sugar if needed.
4. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Transfer the oats mixture to this tray and press slightly.
5. Bake in a pre-heated oven (180 degrees) for about 8 min
6. Take them out and make incisions.

Enjoy with a hot cup of tea!!
