Quinoa Jaggery Ladoo- an easy and protein packed treat to make this festive season.

These laddoos are refined sugar-free, gluten-free and require no cooking other than roasting the quinoa in the oven.


  • ▢1 cup quinoa 185 grams, raw quinoa
  • ▢1 teaspoon + 2 tablespoon ghee 5 ml + 30 ml
  • ▢1 tablespoon broken cashews
  • ▢1 tablespoon golden raisins
  • ▢1/2 cup powdered jaggery 67 grams
  • ▢2 tablespoons almond flour 20 grams
  • ▢1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • ▢3 tablespoons milk 45 ml, as needed


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 F degrees. Place quinoa on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast at 350 F degrees for 17 minutes, you can shake the tray once in between for even roasting. The quinoa will have a nutty aroma once roasted. Then remove from oven and transfer the roasted quinoa to a coffee/spice grinder and grind to a fine powder and then transfer to a large bowl
  • .white color ground flour in a grinder
  • Now heat 1 teaspoon ghee in a small pan on medium heat and add cashews and raisins to it.
  • Fry until cashews are browned and raisins plump up. Transfer the cashews and raisins to the bowl of ground quinoa. 
  • To the same bowl, now also add to the bowl jaggery powder, almond flour and cardamom powder. Mix everything together using your hands
  • .large bowl with flour, jaggery, nuts and raisins
  • Now, heat remaining 2 tablespoons ghee in a small pan. You just want to warm it up a bit and then add it to the bowl. Mix everything together using your fingers. Now, add the milk- 1 tablespoon at a time. I needed 3 tablespoons milk to bind the laddoos. Check how much you need and add more as needed

  • Mix everything very well using your fingers.
  •  hand mixing flour in a bowl
  • Then take a small portion from the mixture (around 35 grams) and press between your palm to bind it, then roll to form a round shape ladoo. Make all laddoos similarly. These quinoa jaggery ladoo will keep well at room temperature for 5-6 days. I really thought these ladoo tastes even better the next day
