Power Packed Dry Fruit Oat Fudge No Sugar: Energy Boosting Oatmeal Recipe


How to cook oatmeal is a question disturbing most of us ever since the advent of oats. The very word sounds weird sometimes. The first time I heard the word "oats," it sounded something like rots. LOL.
But hardly was I aware of the immense benefits of oats. My very first attempt at eating oats was with the ready-to-eat masala oats. I do not even want to think of that experience - something that kept me from trying out this fiber-rich cereal grain for 2 years. Can you believe it?

Hubby said he won't ever eat oats, no matter how healthy and nutrient rich they may be. But ever since the cooking/baking bug bit me, I have been trying oatmeal recipes for breakfast and meals, savories, snacks, desserts, cookies, cakes, and sweets.

Anyway, coming back to the power packed dry fruit fudge with oatmeal, I made this batch of desi burfi on Lohri - the Punjabi festival that marks the passing of winter solstice. It is celebrated by lighting bonfire, singing hymns, songs, dancing around the fire, distributing sweets, especially prepared with jaggery and sesame seeds and nuts.

We do not celebrate Lohri since my grandpa expired this day 50 decades back. But this time it was different - I should say special at my mom's home, as this Lohri marked my brother's daughter's first. So to bless the baby, I made this dry fruit burfi as prasad for the Lords.

The fudge was another experiment, and it was successful. Glad that I did not use sugar for this recipe and tried making it in traditional way with jaggery.

Let's come back to the energy bar recipe:

dry fruit fudge

Ingredients of Dry fruit burfi
4 medium pieces of gur (jaggery)
1/4 cup- sesame seeds
1/4 cup- poha (falttened rice/rice flakes)
10-almonds
4-walnuts (optional)

1 tbsp- desi ghee (clarified butter)

4 tbsp-water (1/4 cup or little less)
1 tbsp- roasted semolina (optional)

How To Make Oatmeal Fudge No Sugar


Dry roast oats and roasted chana.


Dry roast sesame seeds, almonds and walnuts. I had roasted these earlier, so couldn't take pic.


Roast poha/rice flakes. I had pre-roasted poha as well, so just added it to oatmeal while roasting.
Let them cool.


Grind everything to powder.


Add desi ghee to a thick bottomed pan. Throw in a pinch of salt.


Add gur pieces and keep on slow flame until the jaggery melts.

As soon as jaggery melts, add the nut and oats powder.



Keep stirring and then add roasted semolina. Mix well.


Next add water and cook until everything gathers like a mass.

Pour the mixture in a greased thali/plate or box.

Garnish with almonds. Press with a spatula or heavy utensil. Let it rest for 5-6 hours. I kept it overnight.

Cut into pieces and enjoy no sugar power-packed fudge.
