Apricot & Almond Sunshine Sweets for Ganesh Chaturthi!

 Wishing Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to Everyone!!!

"Shree Vakratunda Mahakaya Suryakoti Samaprabha, Nirvighnam Kuru Me Deva Sarva-Kaaryeshu Sarvada."
The essence of this powerful mantra is that I meditate on Sri Ganesha, Who has a curved trunk, large body, and who has the brilliance of a million suns. O Lord Ganesh, please make all my works free of obstacles, always!!!
Today, on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, Lord Ganesha, also known as the God of Wisdom and Vighnaharta is worshipped to get blessings for auspicious new beginnings! The festival has a powerful message on living life gracefully and becoming humane human beings with a noble heart and spreading peace and happiness!

Last year I made traditional coconut ladoos for the occasion and this year I was looking to make something healthy and almost no-cook recipe to try. Here I go with - 

Apricot and Almond Sunshine Sweets with Garnish of Coconut and Almonds!

These instant sweets are made with just two key ingredients- Apricots and Almonds. 

These sweets are - Super tasty!!!!! Super healthy!!! Refined sugar-free, Keto-friendly, Gluten-free, Fast friendly, and can be made in a jiffy!!! 

What else to look for in the recipe and that too a sweet dessert. 

These are the perfect sweet treats with optimal levels of sweetness and can be enjoyed in fasting or a rejuvenating treat on the go...!!!!!

Feel free to either make balls or ladoos or shape them in moulds. I have tried another version by adding cashews, coconut, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, flax seeds, and chia seeds. Feel free to add jaggery or dates for more sweeter version. These additives taste superb but nevertheless adding these ingredients changes the color from sunshine to little brownish and more nutty flavor and texture. 

The Picture Credits for the post goes to my uber-talented husband, Ashish!
