Diet Ladoos: Refined Sugarfee, Power-Packed On-the-Go Snacks for Kids


Diet ladoos anyone?
Does tthe caption spring a surprise upon you - ladoos, and that too, for dieters?
diet ladoo sugarfree

Well, I have named these diet ladoos, because these are

  • refined sugar-free, which is only calories - empty calories to be precise
  • subtly sweet from jaggery, which is mineral rich and unrefined (I use Organic jaggery)
  • slightly tangy from mineral-rich black salt 
  • crunchy from toasted seeds and nuts, which are loaded with iron, zinc, magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus 
  • kid-friendly since the ingredients aren't ground fine, but kept grainy for those nibbly bites that would instantly appeal to kids
  • butterless, oil-free, and use no ghee - no saturated fat (the only fat here is the natural fat from seeds and nuts that remains locked in these yummy bites to give you plenty of benefits - toasting needs and seeds unlocks healthy oils)
  • not diabetes friendly - kindly do not use this recipe for diabetics 

This diet ladoo recipe is perfect as a tea-time snack, on-the-go snack for dieters and ladoo lovers alike.
