Oats and Coconut Laddu | Oats and Coconut Balls


 Last weekend, a trip to our friend’s farmhouse happened. We always look forward to visiting the farm. Endless green fields, mango orchard, tomato fields, vegetable beds, bees, birds and butterflies. A river that feeds our town runs through one end of the farm. We often spot a lot of birds there. Kids love the freedom of running around wildly chasing partridges and hoopoes.


We decided to take some homemade sweets for our friends and earlier in the morning, we made some Oats and Coconut Laddu. Oats and coconut laddus are chewy, coconut and juicy. Roasted oats lend a distinct nutty flavour We Often make them and our kids love these laddus.


 Everyone loved the healthy laddu with steaming ginger tea over animated conversation.
