Date and Oat Ladoo

Date and Oat Ladoo

It’s an obvious kind of statement, but I feel the caress of satisfaction when the food I cook is nourishing and everyone at home relishes it. 

Ok, I want one more thing … confession .. I also desire to take excellent pictures of the food I cook. Especially of those recipes, which I think would be great to share with you. Taking good pictures has become such a buzzing sense in me and I am completely hooked with my commitment. 

To tell you the truth, it wasn’t always like that. I am a mother and I also run a house like many of you. But a decision changed my life and I am in a better place. I decided to make best use of every single second of my day into doing what I enjoy the most. Today at home I have my own working space and I am in that zone for most of my day. If the day doesn’t permit me enough time, I work at night or in the early morning. 

A night with work make you very hungry and I find it very smart to have healthy snacking options ready. These Ladoos are amazingly delicious high in protein and these have no refined sugar. A perfect snack option for odd food times. Though I bake a lot, I don’t munch unnecessarily. If I feel hungry in the odd hours, I am very selective about what I am indulging in. These Ladoos are so good and they leave me with a great deal of satisfaction and zero guilt.

I have used Instant Oats, nuts and dates. If Ladoo doesn’t fancy you enough name them Nutrition filled Date Truffles. The best part is that these are super quick and fuss-free to make at home. they keep you full for longer and satisfy your sweet cravings too. Great for kids too, and if you really want to tempt your kids more. simply coat them with some good chocolate or with cocoa powder.

There is nothing complicated in the recipe, it’s very forgiving. And you get the liberty to play around with the quantity of the ingredients as per your choice. 

Make sure to use good quality ingredients, because that will result into good result. 

If you struggle to deseed the dates, here is a tip for you. In a microwave-safe container add the dates and sprinkle little water over them. Microwave for 1-2 minutes and then remove the seeds. And chop them into tiny bits. Or take seedless dates and chop them into tiny bits. 

Use a food processor to do the job. The blades of a regular mixer blender at home are not suitable for sticky stiff dates.

Equipment

  • Food Processor

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats (I used quick cooking oats) https://amzn.to/2Qs5EvE
  • 3/4 cup of dates, seeds removed and chopped https://amzn.to/32rYHAg
  • 1 cup mixed nuts – roughly chopped https://amzn.to/3ldyG09
  • 50 gm butter
  • 1/4th tsp salt

Instructions

  • Chop the dates and nuts and set aside.
  • In a pan add butter, add the oats and nuts. Roast until light golden brown, about 5-8 minutes.
  • Add chopped dates, roasted nuts, oats and a 1/4th tsp of salt. Pulse the ingredients in the processorhttps://amzn.to/31tAhHj and combine all.
    Don't mash the mix completely. A bit bite of nuts and dates is quite pleasing to the tastebuds.
  • Make small lemon-sized Ladoo and set aside. If you wish to coat them in melted chocolate, chill them for an hour or so in the fridge. They will hold the shape and will be easy to handle.
