No Cook Vegan Dates Coconut and Seed Energy Bites - Chia Pumpkin Melon Seed Date Laddoos Recipe

Hello foodies,

Today I am sharing a guilt free dessert recipe for you. The recipe needs all plant based ingredients so it is good for vegans, diabetics and in general everyone. These energy bites are full loaded with vitamins, antioxidants and all good ingredients, which are good for your health and heart. With a multitude of benefits, why look for desserts with added sugar. Kids and oldies in my home enjoy these treats daily and usually I make a batch over the weekend, so that it could be enjoyed throughtout the week or whenever craving to eat something sweet strikes. The total time you would require to make this recipe would be a maximum of 15 minutes and this includes rolling of the energy bites as well. So what are we waiting for, let's get started with the recipe.

Ingredients (you will need):
Dates, 2 cup
Chia Seeds, 1/2 cup
Pumpkin Seeds, 1/2 cup
Melon Seeds, 1/2 cup
Coconut shredded, 1/2 cup

Cooking steps:
1. In a blender add the chia, pumpkin and melon seeds.

2. Deseed all the dates and remove the eyes if present. Add the deseeded dates and shredded coconut to the blender.

3. Blend the mixture at a low speed in the blender initially.

4. After a slow speed pulses, blend the mixture at a high speed till the mixture starts to come together as shown in the picture below.

5. Take a spoonful of mixture and roll out into energy bites or laddoos. You don't need to add any fat as the coconut releases some oil upon processing which binds the mixture together easily. Store the energy bites in fridge. They keep well for about a week or so.

Enjoy these guilt free desserts any time of the day with your friends and family. Do let me know if you tried this recipe and how it turned out for you!

Happy Cooking!
