Oats Laddu

This Oats Laddu is one of the Easy Indian Sweets Recipes that I love to prepare often for my family. It can be prepared with sugar or jaggery and not much of ghee is needed. They are non-sticky while you hold on and slightly chewy and taste good. They can be made absolutely fat free or vegan by eliminating the ghee. I had posted an oats burfi recipe last Diwali, so this time thought of sharing this laddu recipe too. This recipe is a no fail one and needs no string consistency, while the burfi can become powdery or may not set well, if one goes wrong with the string consistency. So do try this healthy Easy Diwali Sweet Recipe.

I have used organic brown sugar cubes this time; you can use white sugar or brown sugar or even jaggery. But the jaggery ones might be sticky.
