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.

However, no refined sugar does not make these ladoos diabetes-friendly!
There is more to diabetes than white sugar alone!

2 tbsp- dry roasted pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup- jaggery powder
2tbsp- water
2 pinches of black salt

How to make diet ladoos: sugarless Indian sweet recipe 

Dry roast each of the seeds separately.
Allow them to cool down.
Turn them to coarse powder.
Do not grind much, else, the seeds might start oozing oil. We need their grainy texture.
Mix with almond meal and sprouted, roasted ragi flour. Keep aside.
Now take a utensil and add jaggery powder to it.
Heat on a medium flame.
Add salt and mix.
Next add 1 tbsp of water and stir vigorously.
Then add the remaining 1 tbsp of water and keep stirring constantly until you start to see the jaggery mixture bubbling.
Turn off the flame.
Add the powders in batches - mix.
Make ladoo shapes when it is still warm. But do not burn your hands.
Enjoy healthy sugarless diet ladoo, which make an on-the-go snack for kids and elders alike.
The power-packed ladoos are a real treat for sweet lovers and health freaks.
One diet ladoo goes a long way in keeping you feeling full for longer. What more could you ask for?
Subtle sweetness ensures that there isn't too much of sweetness for you to worry about!
Happy kids! Happy adults! Happy you!

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.
