Oats Coconut Ladoo - Vegan Dessert under 3 mins (Microwave recipe)

Share with friends and family

Another quick ,healthy  dessert / sweet using oats , coconut and jaggery . 

A tasty and filling after school treat for kids to satisfy their sudden sweet cravings ..instead of indulging into white sugar loaded candies or sweets these healthy oats and jaggery balls or ladoo will be a good choice. 

Jaggery is rich in iron and helps fight anaemia and oats being rich in fibre helps in digestion and keeping the digestive track healthy . Oats are also very good for heart health and fresh coconut is also a good source of potassium and other vital nutrients. 

The natural oil from the coconut helps in binding the ladoo and we need not add any extra ghee like we do for the normal ladoos. This makes it vegan friendly as well .

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 3-4 mins
Makes : 10-12 ladoos
Complexity : Simple

Pin me up !! 

1 cup fresh grated coconut
3/4 cup roasted rolled oats
3/4 cup jaggery powdered . (I have used organic jaggery powder)
1 tsp cardamom powder
roughly chopped badam & cashews
1/4 tsp coconut oil to grease the palms


  • In a microwave safe container , mix the jaggery powder , coocnut , roasted oats and m/w it for 2 mins.
  • Take it out from the oven, mix it with a spoon, add the chopped nuts , cardamom powder ; mix and microwave for 1 min again.
  • Take it out and let it cool for 2-3 mins.
  • Mix it again with a spoon, grease your palms with coconut oil and make ladoos or balls.
  • Enjoy it immediately or you can refrigerate and enjoy it chilled as well,

You can roll the ladooos over dessicated coconut if you like. I personally don't like to mix the flavor of fresh coconut and dessicated coconut ,hence avoided it.


  1. Wow, such delicious laddoos and healthy too. Even I prefer using organic jaggery powder. Will try these.

  2. Love how you've added a generous amount to the oat ladoo. Haven't made them in a long time. Your post has tempted me to make them soon. This time round will add more coconut.

  3. These oat ladoos are perfect snack sized treats. We keep these ladoos as we travel often too.

  4. The featured image completely justifies the nutritional value of these oats and coconut ladoos. So simple to create, yet so exquisite. Would love to try them out.

  5. Exquisite, easy to make oats and coconut laddoos. Liked your microwave version of ladoos.
