|Dates and nuts laddoos (sugar-free)|
If you want to avoid sugar, yet enjoy a sweet and healthy snack, these Dates and Nuts laddoos are for you. And they are nutritious to boot. The recipe is from Manjula's Kitchen.
Here's how I made these date and nut laddoos:
1 cup pitted mejdool dates
1 cup mixed nuts - almonds, pistachios and walnuts (all unsalted)
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa pwd
pinch of salt
My dates were quite soft, so I just added them to the food processor and let it run for a minutes. Then add the salt and cocoa pwd and run it again for a min or 2 until it forms a lump.
Chop the nuts roughly. Take the dates lump from the food processor and knead it with the nuts till well incorporated, about 1 min.
Grease your palms with ghee and form into laddoos. Enjoy!
