Puffed Rice Snack Bar Recipe

Puffed Rice Snack Bar Recipe
I love homemade snack bars.I usually make snack bars with oats and brown sugar but the bars need refrigeration else they will fall apart.So few weeks back when I made pori urundai, the idea of making this puffed rice bars flashed my mind as this keeps well in room temperature itself and stays crispy too.I tried these bars today and fell in love with them when I took my first bite itself,crunchy bars loaded with nuts and dryfruits yumm!!

I had half pack of puffed rice(pori) and very few almonds so emptied them to make this healthy snack bars.Do try this for your kids snack box and wait for their feedback :)

My Notes:

  • Be careful in checking the consistency else making them into bars will be tough.
  • The color of the Puffed Rice Snack Bar totally depends on the jaggery variety. 
  • You can add any dryfruits and nuts of your choice.
