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.

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:

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.

Ever since my airfryer homecoming, I have always chosen to go for airfryer cookies, and not touched my convection ever since. That's the beauty of airfryer baking.
