Servings 14 -15 ladoos


  • 1 cup ground golden flaxseed meal OR almond flour
  • 10 medjool dates pits removed, chopped into small pieces*
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon water
  • 3 tablespoons ghee
  • ¼ cup raisins or another dried fruit
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds OR ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom


  • Press sauté on the instant pot and toast the flaxseed meal or almond flour for 8-10 minutes or until it turns slightly golden. Remove and set aside in a bowl.
  • Turn off the heat, add ghee and allow it to melt and coat the bottom of the pot. Then add the chopped dates and water.
  • Secure the lid, close the pressure valve and cook for 5 minutes at high pressure.
  • Quick release pressure.
  • Add the toasted flour back into the pot along with the raisins and spice and mix well mashing it all together.
  • Remove the steel liner from the instant pot (so the mixture doesn't burn).
  • Use a small cookie scoop to remove the warm mixture and roll into balls. Set the ladoos on a plate and let them cool, then eat! 



*you need to chop the dates into small/medium pieces so they really soften.
feel free to change this up by adding different additions to the ladoos! you can add chopped nuts, dried fruit and spices.
