The other day the husband came home bragging about some protein bars. Over a hot cup of coffee, he started to share more about those protein bars. Interested to know more about it? Then simply read this post, you will be glad you did.
It seemed that his boss used to bring these bars which his wife made for him. That day he shared the protein bar with my husband. And guess what? It tasted awesome.
Now I got hooked up about these awesome snacks and summoned up all my courage and made a call to the wife of his boss, and she was very friendly and shared with me the recipe. The next day she even sent me the protein bars neatly packed in a foil.
My! My! The taste was divine, you could taste the blend of dried fruits and dates, with the coarse and chunky oats and corn flakes. It was really awesome. And so I am sharing it with you.
Take ½ cup of oats
½ cup of corn flakes
Almonds a few
A few walnuts
Dates or date paste according to your wish
Raisins a few
Honey 2 tbsp.
Sugar 3 tbsp. or according to your taste
Water ¼ cup
Stir fry the oats and cornflakes for a few seconds and keep it aside.
Stir fry the dried fruits, walnut and almonds for a few seconds and keep it aside.
Grind the oats and cornflakes in a mixer, just grind it coarsely
Grind the dried fruits almond, walnut, raisins and dates and grind it coarsely in a mixer.
In a pan, heat water and sugar and keep it until the liquid thickens to a thread like consistency
Remove from fire and add the dried fruits, honey and oats and cornflakes mixture
The mixture will be soft and flexible enough to make a soft ball that is the perfect consistency
Slowly flatten it on a plate and cut into small bars and chill it in the fridge
You can serve it as such or can pack it in foil and send it as a snack to school or office.
Wow! That’s a really amazing recipe is it not?
Try it and see, it is a tasty and healthy snack, which your family will love.
