Healthy Granola Bar - 2 types




It’s almost 2 months that I have blogged… I missed sharing recipes with all my readers.  I hope you all have had some time to go through my recent videos which I created with Ria’s help.  These days children are very sharp…they are very well versed with technology.   Ria finished with her studies and offered to help me make videos as she saw me struggling with making the dish and taking videos. 

Do watch the videos.  Don’t forget to follow, share, like and comment on her work and yes do make the dishes and share your feedback for sure with me. I will pass on all your love and comments to my daughter RiaJ.

Every morning I got up and had blogging on my to do list… but due to busy schedule this got the last priority.  I had been very busy with catering / baking for customers and this really kept me on my toes the whole day.  I attended few baking classes and have started baking and decorating some good cakes for customers these days!

Jadhav Kaku (aunty) who took care of Ria when she was in primary school while I was working, recently met me in the market.  She appreciated my work and told me that I should try making Healthy Granola bars and share the recipe with her.  This post is dedicated to Kaku who is a wonderful and loving lady!!

Granola bars are made from ingredients like dried fruits, nuts, seeds, honey, coconut, and oats.  It is a healthy snack for kids when they are back from school and also good for adults.  My husband is a big fan of these bars and has asked me to refill the jars with these goodies…

Let’s get making these simple but powerful bars… I will share with you two ways I made them.

Ingredients (type 1):

Quaker Oats (roasted) – 1 cup                                                                                   
Jaggery – 1 cup
Roasted Almonds, Groundnuts, Cashews & Black Raisins– 1 cup
Ghee – 1 to 2 tbsp
Salt – 1 pinch

Method :

Take a pan and when hot add in the ghee and on low flame saute all the dry fruits for a minute.  Add in the jaggery and allow it to melt.  Time to add in the roasted oats, pinch of salt and mix everything very well.  Ensure you keep a watch on the gas flame.  It has to be kept on low. Grease a container and place the mixture into it and with the help of a spatula press the mixture well. Refrigerate this for at least 2 hours and then cut them into desired shapes and enjoy.

You can store them in silver foil in fridge for further use!

Ingredients (type 2):
Quaker Oats (roasted) – 1 cup                                                                                   
Dates (soaked in hot water for 10 minutes)  – 1 cup
Honey – ¼ cup
Roasted Almonds, Groundnuts, Cashews & Black Raisins– 1 cup
Ghee – 1 to 2 tbsp
Salt – 1 pinch

Method :

Grind the dates in a blender.  Take a pan and when hot add in the ghee and on low flame add the dates mixture and saute till it thickens.  Add in all the dry fruits and saute for a minute.  Add in the honey to this mixture.  Time to add in the roasted oats, pinch of salt and mix everything very well.  Ensure you keep a watch on the gas flame.  It has to be kept on low. Grease a container and place the mixture into it and with the help of a spatula press the mixture well. Refrigerate this for at least 2 hours and then cut them into desired shapes and enjoy.

My phone was charging when I made the 2nd type of the bar and hence only could click the final picture for you all.

Hope you will give both versions of this recipe a try and as always I look forward to your feedback / comments… Cheers to Good health and happiness to all!!
