Is this crisp or chewy, sweet or fruity? It is this mixture of flavours and textures that makes the Granola Bars a treat for kids! It keeps them guessing with every bite, loaded with fibre and protein rich oats and cornflakes, nutritious dry fruits and nuts, all bound together by caramelised sugar.
- Combine the oats, mixed nuts and melon seeds in a broad non-stick pan and dry roast them on a medium flame for 3 to 4 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Keep aside to cool.
- When cooled, add the cornflakes and raisins and mix well. Keep aside.
- Combine the sugar along with 1 tbsp of water in a broad non-stick pan and cook on a high flame for 10 to 12 minutes or till the sugar caramelizes, while stirring continuously.
- Remove from the flame, add the oats-cornflour mixture and mix well.
- Pour this mixture on to a greased marble or stone surface.
- Using a large greased rolling pin, roll it out lightly to form a square approximately 200 mm. X 200 mm. (8" x 8").
- While it is still warm, cut out rectangular bars of 25 mm. X 100 mm. (1" x 4").
- Store in an air-tight container.
- Sugar burns very quickly, so give it your full attention.
- Grease your hands, the marble top and the rolling pin generously with oil.
