Oats Ladoo with Edible Gum

BM # 62
Week :1 , Day: 2
Theme: Indian Mithai

Suddenly I have become fond of making ladoos. I remember my first ladoos were a recipe from Priya Srinivasan. The Oats and Poha ladoos ! Those ladoos are a big hit and I have gifted umpteen boxes of these ladoos. While making those I thought of adding the edible gum which is very healthy, specially during the last months of pregnancy and post delivery. Almonds give these ladoos a very nutty flavor and make them filling too. Well pregnancy or delivery is not the only time for relishing these, go ahead and enjoy them during winters, while traveling, pack them for kids lunch box or even enjoy them after a meal as a dessert.

Yes these ladoos are my post for week 1 where I have chosen Indian Mithai as my theme.
