Though it looks like I am on a peanut spree going by my posts this week, I am not. I did not realize that the recipes I picked from Priya's blog to post this week were all peanut based until I sat down to draft them. I had originally planned a breakfast dish for today and already had it ready in my drafts. However I changed my mind as I wanted to end the week on a sweet note with these laddus. As Priya pointed out these power packed laddus are vegan, gluten free and they taste yummy. They don't need any ghee / milk to shape the laddus as the peanuts and jaggery act as the binding agents.
Ingredients: (Yield 8 laddus)
1/4 cup almonds (or replace with peanuts)
* Toast oats and poha individually until they are crisp. Let them cool.
* Grind poha, oats, almonds and peanuts individually in a food processor or a blender until they are powdered fine. (Make sure to grind poha finely. Biting into laddus with coarsely ground poha is not fun.)
* Transfer the mixture onto a wide plate. Fist a handful of the mixture and shape it into a ball. Repeat the step with the remaining mixture to shape lime sized balls.
