I haven’t baked anything for over a week. I also haven’t bought any snacks like cookies or crackers for a while. This means that I have nothing to much on in between my meals
I always like my snack jars (yes! we have a couple of them ) to be filled with yummy homemade bakes. Most of the time it’s some healthy whole wheat scones, muffins or cakes which can satisfy my hunger and sweet tooth.
This time I wanted to make something simple and quick. When I searched my pantry I saw a pack of Sugar free, oil free, organic wheat flakes. I don’t’ really eat cereals for breakfast. So I thought of making some sweet snack with it. I dug into my pantry for a few accompaniments that I can throw in with the wheat flakes and result was this sweet, coconutty peanutty snack!
The entire mix came together beautifully! It made killer snack! A lot healthier than most store bought snacks and takes no time to make!! Other than a couple of spoon of sugars (which is optional anyway), it has all healthy ingredients. No oil or butter! Its crunchy, nutty, sweet and addictive! This shall be a regular in one of my snack jars I bet it can be a great breakfast paired with a fruit!

- 1 ½ cups wheat flakes
- ½ cup dry roasted peanuts
- ¼ cut desiccated coconut
- 1-2 tbsp of sugar (optional)
- 1 pod cardamom
It’s incredibly easy to make. Just throw it all together in a pan and roast it for 5 minutes. Sweet coconut cardamom smell will fill up your kitchen. Sugar will slowly melt and bring it all together. If you want to avoid sugar, skip it altogether or replace it with a couple of spoon of honey or maple syrup. I have used peanuts with skin on them which I dry roasted them at home. You can replace it with store bought peanuts or any other nut of your choice. Turn off the heat when it all looks crisp and golden. Let it cool completely and store in an airtight container.
