Almond Laddu


Easy, healthy and delicious dessert/ laddo made with just couple of ingredients- almond flour, jaggery and ghee. Almond Flour is easily available, I generally keep a pack of Almond Flour in my pantry. Thanks to my friend Sona Krishnaswamy for sharing this yummilicious Almond flour laddus.

‘Laddos’ or ‘Laddus’ are largely popular sweet desserts and there are several varieties of laddus out there. Here is a recipe shared by Sona using just almond flour and mixed with aromatic cardamom and jaggery.

Preparation Time

Cooking Time


5 Mins

10 mins

18-20 pieces



o   2 cups Almond flour (store bought almond flour)

o   1 Cup Jaggery powder

o   2 tsps. Ghee/ Clarified Butter

o   ¼ tsp Cardamom Powder(optional)

o   Assorted nuts to garnish(optional)


o   Take a saucepan and pan fry the almond flour for 3-4 mins on low to medium heat. Once the flour is a little warm it helps in binding the laddos.

o   Switch the stove off add the cardamom powder and the jaggery powder mix well. Transfer the mixture to a mixie/ blender jar. Pulse the mixture a few times. Add the ghee and pulse it again for few more seconds.

o   The mixture starts coming together. Do not blend it too much.

o   Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl. At this point you can add assorted roasted chopped nuts of your liking.

o   Take small portions of the mixture and try making the laddos. If it doesn’t break, it’s the perfect consistency. Else add ½ tsp of ghee and pulse it again and make the laddos.
