Ingredients

1/2 cup- oats
1/2 cup- almond powder
1/4cup-sesame seeds (til)
3 tbsp- walnut powder or 4 walnuts
1/4 cup- fox nuts (makhana)
1/4 cup- poha (beaten rice/rice flakes)
1/4 cup- murmura (puffed rice)
1/4 cup- cornflakes (optional)
1 cup- jaggery powder (I have taken 5 medium pieces of gur)
1 tbsp- ghee (clarified butter)
3 tsp-water enough to just soak the jaggery (be careful with this proportion)
pinch of salt or 1/4 tsp apple cider vinegar (or vinegar/lime juice) - vinegar /lime juice is optional..I added just to balance the sweetness of jaggery

How to make toffee sauce: a heart healthy candy

Dry roast oats, poha, and murmura. Keep aside for cooling.
Dry roast almonds, walnuts, and fox nuts.
Grind nuts to powder. Then grind oats, poha, and murmura.
Mix everything.
Heat ghee in a pan. Drop in jaggery pieces or powder. Keep the flame at low.
Watch the jaggery melt. Add vinegar/salt/lime juice.
Then add water and mix quickly. You have to be careful with water. In fact, it is the water consistency that will decide whether you get a power-packed toffee or fudge. The water should be little less than what you normally add for burfi.This will determine that the fudge turns hard like a toffee.
Keep stirring until the mixture turns thick.
Immediately turn off the flame and pour into the pan all the dry powders.
Keep stirring and turn on the flame ..keep it low again.. Stir until the mixture combines into a ball or gathers at the center.
Quickly drop this mixture on an aluminum foil. Allow it to cool down. You may press it with a spatula when it is hot to make burfi/fudge or wait for 6-7 hours and then turn it into toffees.

Give shapes as per your wish and serve this nutritious oatmeal toffee to your kids. Trust me, they won't reject these yummy twisters!
