Sugarless Poha Ladoo: A Quick High Fiber Sweet Recipe


Poha ladoo? Well, the idea does not belong to me. But this one comes from a dear friend, Neelam Avasthy, who had shared this poha ladoo recipe in my group "Healthy Recipes by Homemakers" We are a Facebook platform for sharing healthy recipes only. The group does not entertain recipes that use unhealthy ingredients, so we keep brainstorming and coming up with innovative ideas to make food healthy and delicious. Perhaps this high fiber poha ladoo recipe is such an innovation from Neelam ji.

In the words of Neelam herself,  these ladoos are"low calorie but healthy treat for all. This sweet dish will be liked by everyone at home, light n just melting in mouth. Try it friends n don't forget to give me feedback plz."

Did I say she received feedback from all corners. Everybody simply fell in love with this simple recipe. Neelam Avasthy is a masterchef in herself. An amazing chef and a beautiful soul, she is simply one of my favorite girls in the food world.

I have altered the recipe a little to include my favorite fiber ingredient, oatmeal.

If you are looking for a low calorie sweet, then this is not the right recipe for you.
But it surely is a fiber-packed recipe that gives you amazing flavors and energy boost.
Made of rice grain, poha or flattened rice is a healthy addition to your diet plans. It is even a healthier snacking choice for diabetics. But of course, this poha ladoo recipe is not diabetes-friendly. I have shared a few diabetes-friendly recipes on this blog. Do give them a try. One of my favorite ones is baked poha cutlet.

Poha is the world's first fast food.


Easy to digest, flattened rice is a good diet food for people with stomach problems.
Being a high carb and high-calorie food, poha or rice flakes keep you feeling full for longer.
It is a gluten-free food ingredient - best for people with gluten allergy.


Let's come back to the high fiber sweet recipe:

Eggless Butterless Whole Wheat Sponge With Jaggery

A whole wheat sponge, that too, with minimum ingredients? No, I am not kidding. This baked beauty before you is the result of a successful experiment with whole grains. I am glad about the results. Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk. But I am sure the result should be the same (rather, more flavorful) with dairy-free milk. I could add plain water too, but reserved the thought for another baking session.


If you want to learn how to make almond milk or coconut milk at home, it is quite simple. I never buy these from the market; rather, prefer to make everything at home.

So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively rep…
