Almond Chia Seeds Laddu

#Healthy…#Quickrecipe…#NoSugar #NoButter #NoGhee…

In this a no-fuss laddu recipe, I have used Organic Raw Chia Seeds from Lvya that are rich in Omega-3 & Omega-6 essential fatty acids, protein and dietary fiber with antioxidant properties.

I have roasted the almonds to enhance their flavour and crunchiness. Dates and raisins are used for sweetening the dessert. They also add to the health quotient of the recipe and act as a good binding agent while shaping laddus. Chia seeds can be used raw and gets powdered well along with badams.

Ingredients 

  1. Almonds/Badams – 1/4 cup
  2. LYVA’s Organic Chia Seeds – 1/4 cup
  3. Raisins/Kishmish – 1/8 cup, finely chopped
  4. Dates – 4 nos deseeded, finely chopped
  5. Elaichi Powder – a pinch

Method 

  • Dry roast badams in medium flame and keep tossing them to avoid burning. Roast till they emit nice aroma and are light golden in colour. You can also blanch and peel badams before roasting as per your preferences. 
  • In a mixer jar, add badams and chia seeds together and pulse them into a coarse powder. 
  • Add finely chopped dates, raisins and elaichi powder. Pulse till the ingredients get mixed well and form a dough-like consistency. 
  • Divide the dough into equal parts and shape them into laddus. 
  • These badam chia seeds laddus stays good for about 10 days at room temperature.
