Sugarless Nutty Ladoo: A Gluten-Free Recipe

What brings you here is the need for a gluten-free ladoo recipe. But more than a gluten free recipe, you are exploring sugarfree recipes, right? Well, do sugarless recipes need to be bland? Na, if you try this sugarless nutty ladoo recipe, this will change your opinion about unsweetened recipes once and for all. But one point that I would like to make clear here is that sugarless does not make it a diabetes-friendly recipe. Although the recipe uses dates and raisins as a sweetener, it is not the best snack for diabetics. Though dates and raisins have a low glycemic index, they are highly sweet and have a high glycemic load.

When you are looking for diabetes recipes, you need to get your hands on foods that are low in glycemic index and glycemic load. Low glycemic index categorizes foods not quickly absorbed in your body, causing a blood glucose spike. A sudden rise in blood sugar can cause serious health issues, from toxicity to blindness, renal failure, and cardiovascular problems.

Glycemic load is a term used to describe the speed with which glucose processed from a food item enters the bloodstream. Dates have a low GI (42) but high glycemic load (18).

People with type 1 diabetes can't produce adequate insulin, which is responsible for processing glucose. As a result, they have an excess of blood sugar. The slow and steady release of glucose in low-glycemic foods is helpful in keeping blood glucose under control.

1 cup- roasted almonds
1/4 cup-sunflower seeds (roasted)
6-10- dates (khajur)
1/4 cup- sesame seeds (toasted)- black or white

Sugarless Besan Ladoo : A Healthy Chickpea Gluten Free Recipe

But hubby doesn't find them interesting enough to relish them. Yes, I am not joking. He loves boondi ladoos. So I have never tried making besan ladoos before.
