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. It’s hard to eat just one!

Snowman Coconut Ladoo

User Submitted Recipes, , , ,

I made this beautiful delicious snowman coconut ladoos for last year Christmas party and it was a top hit. As soon as I placed them on the table, all I heard was “WOW!” and that’s it. They got vanished in a glimpse of a second and of course, they were generous enough to leave me with a plate at least. This was the talk for a while among my family and friends. I had so much fun decorating them and that’s the time I got the idea of recreating this with my baby nephew. He was as thrilled as I was and we had an awesome aunt-nephew time together which is ineffable. Let your precious moment begins with your little ones as well!
