Diabetic Friendly Oats and Dry Fruits Ladoo


Oats and dry fruit ladoo are one of the easiest Indian snack items. These are great for kids & adults as they are loaded with nutrients and are delicious in taste. They can be easily packed and given to children in school or people working in an office.

Oat is rich in fiber & is a good source of complex carbohydrates. Nuts like almond, walnut, pistachio are rich in protein, omega-3 & omega-6 fatty acid, Vitamin E and many other minerals. Dates and figs contain a good amount of complex sugar, so no artificial sugar is used.

It is a diabetic-friendly recipe, weight loss recipe, helps to lower cholesterol, prevents constipation as oats are good in fiber content. It can be served on a festive occasion.



1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
14 pitted good quality Arab Dates
5-6 Figs (Anjeer)
12-15 Almonds
8-10 Walnuts
2 tbsp Pistachios
2 tbsp Flax seeds
1-2 tsp Ghee (optional)


  1. Dry roast oats for 2-3 mins and coarsely powder them and keep it aside.
  2. Dry roast flax seeds until they start popping up and pulse them in the mixer for few seconds. Do not powder them completely, just grind coarsely as they give nice nutty texture to ladoo. Remove and keep it aside.
  3. Warm almonds, pistachios, and walnuts separately one by one and also pulse them separately to get tiny bits. Do this in whipper mode and also do this process separately. Remove and keep it aside.
  4. Chop figs and dates finely and run this in the mixer for a minute or two. The idea here is to get a sticky but slight coarse mixture as this is the main sweet base and also the binding agent.
  5. Now in a wide bowl add the ground dates-fig mixture, powdered oats,almonds-pistachios-walnuts mixture, and crushed flax seeds.
  6. Mix them well and check for the sweetness of the mixture.
