Have you got all your glitters and blaze ready for this Diwali? I’m sure it must all be on its way! I’m quite excited and enthusiastic for this ultimate-celebration. In our area we have lights, lamps and glitters hanging from Diwali till Christmas. It creates such an amazingly gorgeous view to experience. A twinkling star-like light elevates the mood, beautiful looking lamps, handmade rangolis ready to welcome guests with warmth and cheerful ambience add to the atmosphere. There are also new attires to try on while laughter is scattered all over relishing some sweet treat. It all adds a zing to our festivity!
I am sure you must be having tons of in-house recipes and treats for this festival season. BUT…try to spare your health a bit from that heavy dose of sugary intake this time. Oats-dates treats is a completely sugar-free and gluten-free dessert for you and your family to enjoy. The blend of dry fruits, gulkand and dates gives a delectable flavour to nibble on. This rose-flavoured sweet dish with a healthy flair is sure to be a crowd pleaser. The best part of this festive treat is that it can be made in no time. No pre-work required, instantly-in fashion!
Why get store-bought sugar-loaded sweets, when a delish treat can be crafted with all our innovation and skills with very little effort? They’ll look and taste worth all the effort made. It’s an impeccable and spot on dessert for gifting your relatives and friends. I see no one who can refuse these pretty rose-flavoured confections with nutty crunch to munch on. You can even store them in an air–tight container for 2-3 weeks. No baggage of sugar needed to keep this Diwali sweet! 😉
