Get ready to treat your taste buds and your body to something delicious and nutritious! These hemp laddoos are packed with all sorts of goodness, including:
- 1 cup of protein-rich, fiber-filled hemp seeds that are also loaded with healthy fats and minerals like magnesium, iron, and zinc. These seeds have been shown to have a number of potential health benefits, including improved heart health, reduced inflammation, and improved brain function.
- 1 cup of chia seeds that are brimming with omega-3 fatty acids, as well as protein and fiber. These seeds have been linked to improved heart health, blood sugar control, and weight management.
- 1 cup of flax seeds that are full of plant-based protein, fiber, and healthy fats, as well as lignans with antioxidant properties. Flax seeds have been shown to have a number of potential health benefits, including improved heart health, blood sugar control, and constipation relief.
- 1 cup of toasty, golden brown coconut flakes that add a tasty tropical twist.
- 1 cup of unrefined, iron-rich jaggery (or brown sugar) that has a lower glycemic index than refined sugars and has been linked to improved digestion, immune system support, and respiratory health.
- 1 tsp of aromatic, digestive-aiding cardamom powder that is loaded with antioxidants and has been shown to have potential benefits for digestion, blood pressure control, and respiratory health.
- 1 tsp of creamy, flavorful ghee (clarified butter) that adds a rich, indulgent flavor.
To make these tasty treats, heat up the ghee in a pan over medium heat. Once it's hot, add in the hemp seeds, chia seeds, and flax seeds, and roast until they're fragrant and starting to pop. Toss in the coconut flakes and roast until they're golden brown. Once everything is nice and toasty, add in the jaggery and cardamom powder and mix until the jaggery is melted and everything is well combined. Switch off the heat and let the mixture cool slightly.
Once the mixture is cool enough to handle, take small portions and shape them into laddoos using your hands (or a cookie cutter or small spoon). These hemp laddoos are the ultimate tasty treat that's also super nutritious, thanks to the protein, fiber, and healthy fats from the hemp seeds, chia seeds, and flax seeds, as well as the added bonus of iron, antioxidants, and digestive support from the jaggery and cardamom. Go ahead and indulge - your taste buds (and your body) will thank you!
