Energy bites, Delicious and nutritious energy balls, Gluten-free Pseudo Grain, – Bajra, Ragi or Millet Ball
Bajra and Ragi flour high in protein. A great source for vegetarians. Bajra is greyish in colour and has a nutty taste. Key nutrients to build muscle mass and nourish every cell of the body. Helps cleanse the gut and prevent constipation. Gluten-free flour doesn’t stick together well. Release energy slowly because of the complex carbohydrates. Since its fibre-rich grain, it takes time to digest and make one feel fuller. Due to its nutty taste goes well with any desserts. Good for all people suffering from chronic diseases. Ragi is a very deep red coloured millet. It’s an alkaline grain. Easy to digest. Bajra and ragi have similar features that help in battling anaemia and anxiety, insomnia.
Ancestors and forefathers had grains as an integral part of their daily meals. Naturally rich in Micro-nutrients.
It is no different in the Indian culture, start any occasion with something sweet. I did not have all the ingredients required to make other desserts so suddenly struck my mind to prepare easy dairy-free/gluten-free/sugar-free, vegan sweet that is quick and really healthy. No cooking required. Adding flour helps increase nutrients and stamina. I like natural sweeteners. Soft/pitted dates add stickiness and help the mixture bind nicely. Desiccated coconut is an ideal source of healthy fat. Beneficial to our health and to add texture as well as flavour. Almond is used to giving a nutty aroma and its texture that sets them apart.
Keep these healthy balls handy during your kid’s exams to energize and boost their immune immediately. Keep your family active and healthy
