Oats & Peanuts Ladoo

This month for "Something Sweet" I have invited " Divya Pramil of You Too Can Cook " to share a wonderful recipe with all of us.In my words her space is filled with yummy recipes & beautiful pictures. Do take some time & visit her space here.
In Her words
When Sreevalli, asked me to do a for a guest post I was not able to send her one immediately, but she was kind and patient enough and gave me enough time to send her a post. Though I was ready with the recipe, I had my special post (300th post) coming up so I had to delay this guest post, which when I explained to her, she kindly understood and obliged. (Thank you so much Sreevalli). I came to know about Sreevalli and her blog recently, the best thing that caught my attention immediately was her brilliant and clean blog design and clicks, needless to say she has good collection of recipes too with drool-worthy pictures that will push you to try some. 

As per her request I made a simple delectable sweet with oats and peanuts, that is both healthy and delicious. Its so easy to make and way more healthier than ghee sweets. Moreover it keeps well for more than a week or even 10 days, in normal room temperature. The cardamom pods added gives the ladoos a very appetizing aroma and flavor, whereas peanuts and oats combines together to make a delicious combo. These ladoos have a powdery texture and melts in your mouth as you bite, you will definitely enjoy relishing the flavors in it. You need a very few minutes to make these and they make a very delightful and sweet evening snack. If you are conscious about the calories that sugar can give you can try replacing with jaggery or palm jaggery. So now lets move on to the recipe. Hope you like it. Thanks again Sreevalli for the opportunity..!!

Makes 6 small ladoos 
Total Preparation Time - 15 to 20 minutes

  1. Oats - 1 cup (50 grams)
  2. Peanuts / Groundnuts - 1/2 cup (50 grams; roasted & skinned)
  3. Sugar - 1/2 cup (5 spoons / 50 grams)
  4. Cardamom pods - 2 
  5. Milk - 2 to 3 spoons or as required


  • Dry roast (i.e. roast in pan without oil or fat) peanuts and oats together in a medium flame for about 3 to 4 minutes. 
  • When done remove from flame and set aside until it reaches a bearable temperature. 
  • Now add this roasted oats peanut mixture and sugar into a blender and grind into a fine powder. 
  • Then remove from the jar and empty it on a plate. Sprinkle milk little by little and simultaneously rub the mixture well using your hands. Do this until you can press some flour well into a firm ball that does not fall apart. 
  • Then take some amount of the flour and make balls by pressing firmly. 
  • Serve or store in airtight boxes. Keeps well for 7 to 10 days when stored in an airtight container. 
TIP 1: You can try the same ladoos without peanuts. 

TIP 2: You can add some ghee and make the ladoos if you want it to be more rich. 

TIP 3: Instead of sugar you can use palm jaggery also, it will be more healthy. 

Healthy and tasty ladoos are now ready!! You will love the flavors for sure!!

I love to thank Divya Pramil for sending this delicious recipe to my guest post.
