"Treats for Diwali"- Oat-Almond Laddoo

Besan ladoos, Rava laddoos, Boondi Laddos.....were the traditional laddoos for Diwali back in Pune.Not that I don't like any of them (I LOVE them all!!) ....I wanted to try out something different and a "Healthier Laddoo" would be a 'Icing on the cake'!!

I have made "Oats Laddoo"  before and they come out delicious.Even the most 'Oat hater' ( my very own M) will fall in love with those. I came across a very nice recipe (http://www.7aumsuvai.com/2012/08/almond-oats-laddu.html ) for a healthier Oats Laddoo.These have Oats, Almonds, yellow moong dal and pistachios. Don't they sound yummy to the core!!

Here is my version of the recipe:
Ingredients:(Makes around 25 laddoos)
1 and 1/2 cups Quick cooking oats
1 cup whole Almonds
1/4cup Pistachios
1/4 cup yellow moong dal
1 Cup Sugar
3tbsp Ghee
1tsp cardamon powder

1) Dry Roast separately almonds, pistachios, yellow moong dal , oats in a pan, till golden brown.Do not let them burn. Let them cool.
2) Powder each ingredient separately.Powder the almonds till they start oozing oil (this will help in binding the laddoos). Powder the sugar along with cardamom.
3) Mix together all the powders in a mixing bowl
4) Heat 3tbsp Ghee. Pour on to the mixture of powders.Knead well. If it's too dry heat another 1/2tbsp ghee and add to the mixture.
5) Make into rounds by pressing and rolling into laddoos.
Garnish with pistachios if you like. Store in airtight container.

Give your Family a 'Healthy Boost' this Diwali with these Delicious  Oat- Almond Laddoos!!

  1. Deepti, I made this today with almond flour instead of almonds and some variations in the ratios. Your directions are super easy to follow and it came out well. Thank you!
