Today I have a healthy recipe for you all without much of artificial ingredients.Sound’s boring?, ok let me put it this way,I am gonna blog about a delicious sweet treat that is absolutely healthy too,if you are not yet sold,here is the most impressive part,this sweet little ladoo contains a dash of nutella and now there is no other go for you but love this :). Yeah this is our traditional and humble dry fruits and nuts ladoo with just a small interesting twist,nutella.It all started this way,do you remember my homemade nutties chocolate,when I made that my kid and husband were all behind it .My daughter was demanding for it everyday,so I wanted to make something for her which will resemble nutties yet healthy too. So I thought of making this laddo and shaping them tiny,also added just 2 teaspoons of nutella so that there will be a hint of chocolate flavor,it is purely optional.Other than nutella,these ladoos contain nothing artificial or processed,no refined sugar,no flavoring agents,the dried fruits and nuts provide all the taste,texture and flavor to these little treats. This is a very simple and easy recipe and there are no absolute measurements here.Do you love dates,go ahead and add more,like figs add ’em too. There are tons of recipes for making these ladoos and here is how I made them.
