Perfect homemade granola bars which are soft, chewy and very simple to make. These are baked granola bars for the perfect bind and texture.
Dry roast oats and nuts in a pan on low until slightly roasted and light brown in color.
Take it out. Wipe clean the pan and add ghee. Once it's melted add jaggery.
Let the jaggery melt on low heat. We don't want any boil to come. Jaggery just needs to melt.
Once melted, add roasted oats, nuts, raisins, dates, cinnamon or vanilla and mix everything together.
Switch off the gas while mixing if the pan is too hot.
Take the mixture out in an oven proof dish lined with greased butter paper.
Dab the mixture well and bake at 150 degree C in a pre-heated oven for 10 minutes or until slightly brown on top.
Take it out and let it rest until it's warm and comfortable to touch.
Cut into bars and store in an airtight container.
If the mixture seems very dry, add some more melted jaggery.
Press the mixture very well in the baking tray for it to bind well.
If it doesn't bind well, then eat it as a simple granola.
