Easy Yummy Granola Flax Treats / Flax and Oat Burfi

*---Reposting for event submission --*
When you find something unexpected, thought it might be worth trying.. and after tasting it, feel like why you put off making this for so long.. Its an awesome feeling.. of having discovered something easy, yummy and healthy too. I picked up these free recipe cards from my local grocery store few months ago.. and wanted to try one specific recipe in the stack.. Have been putting it off due to hectic schedule these days.. Today ultimately, I decided to give it a whip.. and Wa..lah.. here it is.. I have changed some ingredients and some proportions as per my liking..

1 Cup Rolled Oats
1/2 Cup Flax seed meal (groung flax seed)
1 Cup Crushed Graham crackers (I used low-fat honey graham crackers)
1/2 cup Golden Raisins
1/2 Cup Dried Roasted Sunflower seeds
1/4 cup butter
3.5 cups fat free mini marshmallows

In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir continuously until melted and the mixture is smooth(about 4-5 minutes) Stir in Oats, graham crumbs, raisins, sunflower seeds and flax seed until thoroughly mixed. The mixture gets all sticky and starts to form like a lump. Pour it into a greased shallow pan. And press it with a metal spatula or hand. After about 5-10 minutes cut it into 2 X 2 inch squares(makes about 24 depending on how thick of a layer you have). Let it cool completely. Yummy.. tasty.. healthy flax n oat burfi is ready.. Its awesome for a quick snack for little ones after a long day at school.. Enjoy !

This goes to the Sunday Snacks - Grab n Go event that I am currently hosting.
