Corn Flakes Laddu

Corn Flakes Laddus are sweet and we can have them any time of the day.

Experts world wide agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Ready to eat cereal ranks as one of the best choice available as part of a nutritious breakfast.

Cereal is a low fat nutrient food with many essential vitamins and minerals. Cereal also provides the important benefits of grains.

This particular type of Corn Flakes named Go Lean Crunch with honey and almonds has lots of almonds and honey in them. It is naturally sweet since Honey has been added so not much of jaggery is used in the laddu.

Here is a recipe of the Corn Flakes Laddu. One can prepare these laddus using any type of corn flakes and little jaggery, dried or fresh coconut and some almonds. It is easy and healthy too. You can pack these laddu to your kids munching box too.

Things I used :

Go Lean Crunchy Corn Flakes : 5 to 6 Cups
Jaggery : 3/4 Cup
Almonds : 1/2 cup
Cardamom :  3 to 5 pods.
Ghee : 1/4 Cup (or 3 Table spoons).
Coconut : 1 Cup (Fresh or dried)

Method :

1. Roast Corn Flakes on low flame for 2 to 3 minutes. Powder it when it is cooled. Add cardamom while dry grinding the corn flakes.

2. Dry roast coconut for a minute. Dry roast almonds on low flame and dry grind it once it is cooled

3. Now keep a pan on the fire and add grated jaggery and 1/4 cup of water. Let it boil nicely.
4. Jaggery starts to bubble up. Stir for 2 minutes and check the syrup consistency. (It should be one thread consistency).
5. Mix well and add dry ground corn flakes, almonds and coconut. Mix it nicely and put off the fire.
6. Add ghee and prepare laddu by taking a handful of the mixture and press it nicely and give a small ball shape.

7. Repeat the same with remaining mixture.
8. Serve these Corn Flakes Laddu at any time of the day. You can pack these laddus for your friends too.

Note :

This particular brand corn flakes contain honey and loads of almonds. You can prepare laddu with any brand and any type of corn flakes. You can add or skip dry fruits. Must roast these corn flakes on low flame. Dry grind it when it is cooled. You can use cashews, raisins etc. You can also use more coconut to the mixture. It adds to the taste. You can also use more ghee. If you feel the mixture is dry use hot milk (add little by little) and prepare laddu. Must keep these milk used laddu in the fridge. or it may get fungus.
Time : 30 minutes (Al together)
25 to 30 Laddus can be prepared.
