Ingredients and Method to make Oats and Nuts Ladoo
Quick Rolled Oats, finely powdered.
Jaggery Powder or powdered sugar. You can also add coconut palm sugar or burra/tagaar(available in India to make mithai/sweets).
Nuts- I added Cashew nuts. You can add any of the nuts of your choice like Walnuts, Almonds, Pistachios. I have also added cucumber seeds.You can add melon seeds or skip it.
Cardamom Powder for flavour.
Ghee to bind the flour to make ladoo. Since we use ghee to bind ladoos I can't call it Vegan, But many people consider Ghee as Vegan as it has very negligible amount of dairy. So if you are Vegan, pls see see your preference and try these ladoos.
You may also use Almond Butter/Cashew Butter to bind the ladoos. Microwave it for about 30 sec-60 sec, and then add to powdered oats and nuts mix.
