  1. Hi Manjula ji, I like all your recipes and would like to ask you if I can use stevia in place of sugar, and if so how much quantity and how. I am eagerly awaiting your advice. Thank you Manjula ji. Regards.

  2. I make flax burfis or laddoos with dessicated unsweetened coconut, and Microwaved mashed dates or figs. no sugar.Would recommend adding a tsp roasted sesame for the Vitamin E.

    1. You guys just have to realise.one thing,either dates,raisins,Brown sugar, white sugar,agave, it’s all the same, you body processing it the same.way,no difference,it is all selling strategy pitch.

      1. NO DEAR THERE IS A DIFFERENCE IN WHITE SUGAR & AGAVE SYRUP as GI [ Glysemic Index ] of SUGAR is 80 while AGAVE is 30 so……………….. better option is definetly AGAVE if like the taste. Those, are interested may visite in google for Glysemic Index comparision. O.K. ! and yes STEVIA is another option as ZERO calories & 0 Glysemic Index. again it’s a very powerful sweetner than Sugar…..

    2. how to do it,please let me know

      and will it give sweetness similar to sugar ? and it is good for diabetics since i am diabetic

      thanks in advance

  3. I did the math as I want to know too.
    The total calories for Manjula’s ingredients is 2011.
    Divide that by 24 pieces and you get 84 calories a piece.
    That’s not bad.
    I’d rather have a couple of these than a candy bar.

  4. Hi Manjula Ji,
    I wonder if honey could be substitited for sugar in this recipe? I am making GAPS sweets for my kids and I find that honey is indeed a healthier alternative to white sugar. Since its sweeter than sugar, would I have to add less? Must say I love the idea of adding flaxseed to any sweet. i’m going to try adding a little cocoa powder for my chocolate loving kids and see how that turns out!!!
    Love your recipes!!
