Ingredients

  • 250 grams Mixed nuts and seeds I have used almonds, cashewnuts, pistachios,pumpkin seeds, melon seeds, flax seeds
  • 1 ring dried pineapple chopped into small squares
  • 2 slices dried mango chopped into small squares
  • 2 tbsp candied ginger
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • 2 tbsp dried cranberries
  • 2-3 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 4-5 nos cardamom pods, seeds removed powdered
  • 2-3 nos cloves powdered

Instructions

  • First get you nuts and seeds measured, chop them roughly.  In an over-proof tray, tip in all the nuts,  drizzle a tsp of oil on top and mix it with your hands. Preheat the oven to 180C and roast the nuts for 8-10 minutes.
  • Temperature and timing vary from oven to oven, so keep an eye on the nuts from 8th minute. Once they are done, remove from the oven, let them cool completely before you use them in the recipe. 
  • To the roasted nuts, add choppedpineapple, chopped mango, candied ginger, chia seeds, raisins and cranberries.Mix them well.
  • Keep a small tray greased with butter, to shap ethe nut candy bars
  • Heat a  heavy bottom pan, that would fit all the nuts, add honey and butter, keeping the flame simmer. The mixture will start bubbling up.
  • When the honey and butter melts, add the cardamom & clove powder to it and whisk well.
  • Add the nuts and seeds to it, and give it a brisk stir. Let it be on the stove for another 4-5 minutes.
  • Take it off the stove, Pour this honey and nut mix to the buttered tray, smoothen the top with spatuala. 
  • Let this sit for a minimum of 30 minutes to set. I actually left in the fridge for it to set fast, as i had to click pictures before the light fades off. 
  • After the said time, loosen the edges of the candy and invert it onto a chopping board and cut them into squares.
  • Refrigerate it in an air-tight container. Mine got over the same day as both my kiddos loved it.

Notes

  • I have used cardamom & clove powder to flavor the bars, you can use cinnamon, nutmeg or even dry ginger powder.
  • Be careful while working with the butter and honey mix, use a spatual to smoothen the candy as it will be very hot, touching the caramelized nuts might cause painful burn 
  • I refrigerated the nuts bar as it was made of honey and butter and the temperature here is too hot, i feared it might not hold shape.
