Coconut Anjeer Ladoos || Coconut and Dried Fig Balls

 These Coconut Anjeer ladoos are so easy to make and are a great Diwali sweet as well as a healthy snack for anytime of the year. I have added coconut sugar to it however you can make them completely sugar free as well since the dried figs do give them some sweetness.

Dried figs are rich in a lot of nutrients like minerals and vitamins. Six dried figs, the USDA says, gets you about 125 calories and higher amounts of magnesium (8%), potassium (7%), calcium (6%) and iron (6%). Dried figs also contain healthy phytochemicals (plant-based nutrients) and antioxidants.

What are the ingredients needed for this recipe?

  • Walnuts
  • Shredded Coconut (unsweetened) – Make sure to use unsweetened and dried/dessicated coconut – I like to use this brand 
  • Sea salt
  • Coconut Sugar
  • Cardamom pods / cardamom powder
