Oats- coconut burfi

Last week schools announced 10 days holiday for Dusshera and my kids really enjoyed the festival and their winter camp with full enthusiasm without any worries.My daughter and I decided to make some home made burfis. We ended up making our own version of oat burfies inspired by the recipe we found in the "Quaker oats"cook book . As usual we had to get creative and make our version of the recipe. It took us a only 10 minutes . It was a very fun morning for both of us with all the spills and diwali cleaning as there are only 2 weeks left. Altogether it was fun filled holiday.
