Oats Lollipop Recipe - Ingredients

Preparation Time : 5 mins | Cooking Time : 10 mins | Makes : 10 lollipops

Quick Cooking Oats - 1/2 cup(I used quaker)

Tutti Frutti - 2 tbsp
*Note :I used a mix of cashew,badam and pista.
I made it in bulk and used just 1 tbsp for this recipe

Method:

  1. Soak jaggery in warm water. Then heat it up until it is slightly thick in consistency(no string consistency needs to be checked) .Strain and keep aside.I made more than above mentioned quantity so please don't compare it with the ingredients list.Oats Lollipop Recipe - Step1

My Notes:

  • Don't add more water then oats will be overcooked and will become mushy.
  • Jaggery should be slightly thick.
  • You can just shape them into balls and make them as ladoos too. To just make it fancy for kids you can make them as lollipops.
  • You can even add a tbsp of choco chips replacing tutti frutti.
  • Keeps well for 2-3 days in room temperature.
