GI: very low
1/2 kg flax seed
400 gms jaggery, grated
1 cup chopped dates
2 cups chopped dry fruits( cashew, almonds, walnut,pistachios and raisins)
2 tbsp ginger powder(optional)
1 tbsp cinnamon powder(optional)
12-15 green cardamom pods
1 tbsp ghee(optional only for flavor)
1/2-3/4 cups of peanut/almond butter
Dry roast flax seed at medium high flame till aromatic and crunchy. Don't burn it so be careful . let it cool then grind along with cardamom pods to a powder.
Slightly dry roast the dry fruits to make them crunchy . But don't over do as too much roasting or frying of dry fruits decrease its nutritional values.
Now add all ingredients together and mix properly. Your mixture is ready to make laddoos. Make laddoos of desired size and enjoy healthy snacking.
You can add jaggery and dry fruits as per your taste. For easy binding peanut/almond butter quantity can be increased. In India , flaxseeds have enough oil in it to bind itself ,so use peanut butter as required.
If you are allergic to any nut or peanut butter then can simply skip those nuts and go for ghee , for binding and add other nuts of your choice for flavour.
You can add more ghee also for more flavors and easy binding.
But I bet it still not going to disappoint you at all .
