Indian Food Blog: Keto-Friendly, Low-Carb, Grain-free, Paleo Sesame Seeds Energy Balls 

It is Sunday evening and I have spent the weekend lounging around. The weekdays have been long and exhausting. I am glad I am finally rolling out the second post this weekend. My travel diaries in Srilanka are also up here (don't forget to check it out).  

I am not a kitchen-friendly person or a gourmet chef preparing complicated recipes. I am here to share a new easy-peasy recipe with you so you can follow your fitness regime effortlessly without breaking a bank. These are simple sesame seeds energy balls. 

If you have not been following my posts on Instagram and Facebook, here is what you need to know about Ketogenic diet. I also tried chocolate fat bombs in another post. You can check here if you missed it. 
Scientists have been studying the benefits of ketogenic eating for decades. It has been an ideal diet for athletes, people seeking to lose fat, and those looking for food-based solutions to medical challenges. In order to get into a state of ketosis (so you are running on fat or fuel), your body needs a diet that's high in fat and moderate in protein, with a little to no carbs.

It beats all those fat bombs and is delish. You just need a few ingredients. I have already made these 'Keto-friendly Sesame Seeds Energy Balls' 4-5 times now and try to make it every Sunday so that it lasts me during long weekdays. I have it with my tea everyday post work before I hit the gym. 


Here is the recipe: 
Alright, here is the quick recipe that I tried. I adopted this original recipe from 'Keto For India' here. I just tweaked it a bit and made it with half the ingredients. I didn't feel the need to add cream and too much coconut milk. 

Ingredients:

  • 3/4th cup sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour/desiccated coconut 
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • Stevia/Erythritol
  • 30ml almond milk/coconut milk


Method:
- Dry roast the sesame seeds till it becomes golden brown at a low heat and then grind the seeds. You will get a powder-like texture. I used a non-stick pan for dry roasting. 
- Add coconut flour to the powdered sesame seeds and dry roast at a low heat for a few minutes in the same pan. 
- You can add the ghee and stir well at a low heat. At this time, add the sweetener. The more your dry roast at a very low flame, the yummier it tastes. 
- Let the mixture cool down for 10-15 minutes and add almond/coconut milk according to the texture and if it feels too dry. 
- Just make small round balls. Freeze the laddoos for an hour and store in the container. 

You shoul
d be able to make 9-10 small laddoos
