Quick cooking oats - 1 cup
Cornflakes - 1/4 cup
Honey - 1/2 cup
Butter - 1 tbsp
Brown Sugar - 1 tbsp (You can use normal sugar too)
Water - 1 tbsp
Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp (optional)
Nuts & Dry Fruits :(this should come to a round of 1/2 cup)
Almonds - 5 chopped finely
Walnut - 2 tbsp broken into tiny pieces
Golden, black raisins and Dates /(any other dry fruit) - 1/4 cup
First dry roast oats, cornflakes, nuts and dry fruits in a pan until a nice aroma comes and oats starts slightly browning up. Keep aside.
Now in the same pan, add butter heat it till it melts. Now add honey, demererar sugar, vanilla essence and water, heat it until the mixture starts bubbling up.
At this stage add the roasted oats, cornflakes and nuts mixture and mix well until the honey mixture is coated on all sides of the oats cornflakes mixture.
Then transfer to a butter paper and spread it using a spoon or a wooden laddle to 1/4 or 1/2 inch thickness. Straighten the edges and make it as a square or rectangle.
Cover it with another butter paper and press them down gently.Allow them to cool for 5mins then cut into bars.Bake the bars at 200 deg C for 5-7 mins to make it more crispy , this step is optional but it will retain the bars crispness for a longer time. Cool down and store it in an airtight container.
You can make these bars in oven too but I prefer stove top method easier than the oven method.I like my granola bars for munching during tea time with a cup of milk.Its your choice to make them into bars or squares as per your convenience. If you like oats then am sure you will like these bars too.
If you try to reduce the amount of honey then it will be hard to make pieces/bars.
You can use any type of nuts and dry fruits, the only thing to note down is the quantity.
Store them in an airtight container and enjoy them any time.
