                      I was searching for some Diwali sweet recipes. This Oats n dates laddoo was just what I wanted… No sugar, no ghee recipe ! Thanks for sharing it to us.

                      A small doubt, is the addition of Flax seeds really important? Can it be substituted with something else? Would love to give it a try for this Diwali !

                      Great work !

                      Best wishes

                      Flax seeds are healthy n donot affect the taste. Help with digestion. Can be avoided
