Almond Butter Laddus

Almond Butter Laddu

Earlier last week, I stumbled upon Rachna’s blog and found a an interesting recipe for preparing laddus using peanut butter.  It’s such an easy recipe, with no cooking at all.  Surprisingly I had all the ingredients at home and moreover it was my friend’s daughter’s birthday, so I went ahead and made it immediately. 

First I tried it with peanut butter.  One thing I forgot to notice was, the peanut butter had sodium in it, so the laddus were both sweet and salty.  But we did like the taste. 

Later I remembered about the almond butter which was lying in my pantry after using it for the almond butter bread.  Immediately I checked the nutrition label and I saw 0gm Sodium.  So I made the ladoos again with almond butter and it was absolutely delicious.

For my laddoos I used 1/2 a cup of almond butter, 1/4 a cup of regular icing sugar, 1/4 cup of khoya and a pinch of cardamom powder.  Simply combine all the ingredients and shape it into balls.  I got 13 small ladoos for this measurement.

  1. Hi,

    My daughter was recently found to be allergic to eggs, milk, gluten, soy and cane sugar. She used to love eating cookies. I am finding it extremely difficult to find cookies without the abovementioned ingredients. Would you be able to post some recipes excluding these so she can still eat her sweet treats once in a while? I love your blog.

    I will keep your request in mind Sue. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. I made them last night and they tasted heavenly. Thanks again for quick and easy recipe.Now only problem is weight control because they were so good I could not stop myself with just one or two. 😆

    That’s true Sharanjit. We couldn’t stop eating it too.

  3. Hi,

    I read the Almond laddu recipe, and was wondering where you got the khoya from? can I find it somewhere in the California? or, please advise if I could use ricotta in its place?


    Hi Neena, I did get the khoya in the Indian grocery store in PA, so you should be able to find it in CA too. They usually keep it with the paneer in the freezer. I think ricotta cheese should work too, or simply try milk powder.
