Ladoos is a classic Indian dessert. They are usually small round balls made of flour, sugar and butter. I have fond memories of eating Ladoos during religious festivals and holidays. I also have fond memories of eating Girl Scout Cookies every spring when I was growing up. My favorite cookies were Samoas. This Samoa Ladoos from Shivangi Rao is inspired by the flavors of Samoas cookies, but is grain-free and packed with healthy fats, fiber and protein. These will make your next party much more fun and festive.
