Oats & Puffed Rice Bars with peanut-butter and Honey/
Murmura and Oats BarHi Friends,
One more healthy bar (skip oil) in the list. Few days back i bought a huge box of oats to add in my food. But very much not willing to make porridge and making idlis or was not an easy affair for me as my grinder is not working. So it kept on laying for one week. Secondly yesterday my son called me up while i was in office and said-Mom i am hungry. You made nothing for us. I gave him endless list of things laying in the pantry but he said no i don't want to have this and that. I become so restless at office and decide to make something to munch upon if kids feel hungry. I started searching for easy and healthy recipes as i get very less time after reaching home.
First thing which caught my attention was murmura and oats bar at Aarthis' space. As both things were laying in the pantry i decide to make them at night. After finishing dinner i made these bars. It hardly took 5-7 minutes to make these bars but required resting time was almost 2 hours in fridge. So i decided to cut them in the morning. I kept it whole night in the fridge. In the morning after preparing kids for school i took it out and started cutting the piece,as soon as i took out one piece my son grabbed it from my hands and started munching. I told them that this is for both of you only have patience, but who was listening all that. They asked me to pack few pieces in there lunch box and put rest of them in fridge then i said what about me? My son said OK YOU CAN HAVE ONE :). Thanks kids for letting me try one :). I think it can also be made without oil. Will try next time. Till then try it guys.
