Looking to whip up something quick, easy and yummy as hell? Here is a 5 min Barfi recipe, full of the goodness of whole fats like coconut and nuts, and naturally sweetened with dates (kid friendly, diabetic friendly, waist friendly, I seriously cant think of a better and easier friend) and its Vegan. And you know the best part – my lovely sister in law made this for me when I asked for something sweet few days ago! Seriously bowled over by this easy yummy, 4 ingredient barfi! Try it and you’ll know what I mean.
You can also substitute jaggery for dates if you like the sweetness sharper (it wont remain diabetic friendly). I loved both versions hence sharing.
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup powdered nuts (cashews, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios)
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
Date paste or jaggery syrup (for binding)
Mix everything together to form a gooey dough. Shape into balls (for laddoos) or flatten and cut (for barfi).
Sprinkle shaved nuts on top. Enjoy!
