Cardamom Raw Balls (Dates and cardamom Ladoo)
When we have a sweet craving at home it’s some much better to have one of these raw energy balls, date balls whatever you want to call them. It is tasty, healthy and satisfies the sweet craving.
Diwali is here around and this would be ideal to make something sweet and healthy at the same time. I have added cardamom to this mixture for that Indian hint. My boys absolutely enjoyed them. I won’t deny I ate two even while making them, couldn’t resist hehe
Won’t take must time to make if you have all the ingredients handle. I usually have dates, chia seeds and cardamoms always in my kitchen cupboard. The only thing I had to buy was maple syrup. I usually use honey but wanted to make a fully vegan option for my vegan friends.
I have used Optimum Vac2 Air Vacuum Blender to make this and it was ready in few mins. It is a brilliant addition to my kitchen and I absolutely enjoy using it. You can read the full review of the blender here.
