Baked Oats and Nuts Bars

This is nothing but a crispy , crunchy bars which has all the good stuff, oats, nuts, honey, organic maple syrup so what not to love about it. I like to name it chikki because I was craving for chikki and was not in a mood to do sugar  or gud and just sesame seeds or peanuts or coconut in it, instead I have added oats and made it nice and crunchy. Its perfect bars on the go and no extra sugar in it , just 3/4 cup of organic maple syrup in it which gives nice flavor so let's get to recipe.

2 tbsp. honey - you can use honey instead of maple syrup


In a heavy pot pan, add oats , both sesame seeds and roast till 4-5 minutes till oats become little crunchy.
Take it out in bowl.
Add nuts and coconut and roast it till its nice and toasty.
Now preheat oven at 325 F.
In same pan, add ghee and maple syrup , cardamom powder, cinnamon powder and mix it.
add ghee mixture in to dry oat mixture and mix it nicely.
Put a parchment paper in baking dish and spread evenly the mixture.

You can wet your hands and push it down to all sides evenly so it baked nicely.
Baked it for 20-25 minutes or until nice and golden brown.
I like my crispy so I bake it more.
Take it out and let it cool completely .
You can cut it or just break it as you lie and enjoy it.
Put the rest in air tight container and put a piece in kids and your lunch boxes till it last and make another batch again.
