Easy Atta Cookies Recipe: No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda


almond oats cookies
The word "atta cookies" sends me back in history. Yes, I start feeling nostalgic, because I have some fond memories of atta cookies.

I remember my mama or maternal uncle bringing boxes of atta biscuits at my nani's place everytime we visited them during summer vacations. Then when it was time to return to our place, he would bring more of those boxes for us to take back home. Aww...I am getting nostalgic.

The atta cookies were simple and yet so delicious. The simple cookies with black cardamom flavor were no match to the cookies sold out in confectionaries these days.

You could munch on those healthy bites all the time. I still remember unpacking those baked goodies bursting with the flavors of black cardamom - opening those aluminum tins and then unpacking the atta bites from their newspaper packs.

I so wish to travel back to childhood now. Ever single memory gives me goosebumps now.  I have the best childhood I could imagine.

So my childhood memories inspire today's atta cookies post. Black cardamom or badi elaichi lifts the taste and aroma of this cookie batch. I have a special liking for moti elaichi and love to flavor my regular tea with black cardamom.

So, welcome to another homemade whole wheat cookie recipe post.

As you know this is a place with  a plethora of homemade healthy cookies that you cannot find elsewhere.

This website is your recourse to getting homemade whole grain cookie recipes that are not only healthy, but also crunchy bites that you can munch on at tea time or simply dunk in your big glass of milk.

You will forget packet biscuits available outside. The best part of this atta cookies recipe is that it does not use any raising agents.
The atta cookies with no baking powder, no baking soda are too sumptuous to resist.

Badam  Atta Cookies Recipe: 

3/4 cup whole wheat flour (always check the labels for the type of ingredient - make sure you buy "WHOLE" wheat flour, and not wheat flour alone, which is maida)
1/4 cup milk powder
1/4 cup ghee/ butter or 4 tbsp
Jaggery powder (more or less)
a pinch salt 
1 tsp black cardamom (moti elaichi) powder
2  tsp of milk

Authentic Atta Cookies With Cardamom Flavor



  • Sieve whole wheat flour and milk powder together for 5- 6 times. This will help make the flour airy and give you crunchy cookies without baking powder.
  • Add elaichi powder. Remember to use moti elaichi only, which gives this recipe the authentic aroma and taste. 
  • In a separate bowl, take ghee and add jaggery powder. The authentic recipe uses sugar but I wanted to replace sugar with jaggery.
  • Whisk well until the mix looks fluffy and light.
  •  Add in the flour mix. No need to knead like normal dough. Just gather the ingredients. 
  • Add milk 1 teaspoon at a time. We are looking for a semi soft dough - not too soft, nor too hard. If it feels dry, add more milk little by little.  DONT KNEAD; else you will get chewy cookies. But we are looking for crunchy bites. Kneading will result in gluten formation. It is gluten that gives you chewy rotis. So I am sure you do not want to be eating sweet rotis here, isn't it?
  • Preheat the oven at 180 degrees for 10 mins. I airfried the atta cookies.
  • Bake or air fry atta cookies for about 15 mins at the same temperature. 
  • When ready, do not forget to cool the atta cookies on a cooling rack. Store these baked beauties in an air-tight container once they have completely cooled.

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
