Date and Nut Ladoo

Gluten Free, Kid-Friendly, Navaratri, Quick & Easy, Snacks, Vegan, , , ,

This recipe is for Date and Nut Ladoo, or Candy as we call them at home. For my grand kids they are like candy and they love it. Adapted from my friend Renu’s recipe, when I tried this ladoo for the first time, I said WOW. I could not believe the main ingredient was only dates. That surprised me because I am not very fond of dates. This was the first time I have tasted date ladoos flavored with coco powder. This is a quick and easy recipe. Like me if you are using roasted nuts then there is a little or no cooking involved? This is a guilt free healthy snack (no sugar or butter added). Date ladoos are also vegan and gluten free.
