Indian Style Energy Bars

READY IN: 25mins
YIELD: 40 bars


  • 2
    cups puffed rice cereal
  • 1
    cup oats
  • 1
    cup corn flakes
  • 1
    cup dates, deseeded and chopped
  • 4
    cups crushed mixed nuts, of your choice
  • 1
    cup jaggery
  • 1
    cup water
  • 14
    cup ghee


  • Mix together all dates and nuts. You can add chocolate chips, raisins, peanut butter etc. Here I added almonds, pistachios, melon seeds, dates, peanuts, walnuts.
  • Now break the jaggery into small pcs, this will help in easy melting of jaggery.
  • Take a large pot and add half cup water and crushed jaggery. Cook on low heat, until all jaggery pcs have melt down, forming a syrup like consistency.
  • Add ghee now and cook for 1 minute, keep stirring.
  • Now add nuts mixture to the syrup, mix in very well in order to let jaggery syrup coat all nuts. In case it seems dry add water to make it all stick together.
  • Turn off heat now.
  • Now pour it out onto a cookie sheet, spread evenly. Let cool for a minute and cutout shape as desired. I have made simple rectangles, like bars.
  • Let it cool at room temprature. Will turn hard as it dries.
