Before heading home I made these Oats and Flax Seeds Laddoo and shared the video with you all. Everyone at Home liked them so much, that I had to make another batch of it, but this time I coated them with chocolate and trust me every one just drooled over them. They look so pretty with white and dark chocolate coating and those sprinklers just added the fun. If you have kids at home they will simply love these, as much as my 3 years nephew did 🙂
