Eggless Whole Wheat Cookies: Atta Biscuits at Home


eggless wheat cookies
The cookie bug has bitten me badly. My healthy cookie recipe posts are a clear reflection of my love for cookies.

But as you already know, I look for healthy ingredients for my cookie recipes.

Baking no maida cookies is my forte.

This atta cookie batch is inspired by my memories of childhood.

Remember good old childhood days when cans of cookies from traditional local bakeries would be enjoyed by the entire family? 


Though childhood will never come back, you can still enjoy the tasty atta biscuits at home made of simplest of ingredients with whole wheat flour. With just a few ingredients, you can have the same taste that you used to enjoy when you were a kid!


Whole Wheat Cookie Recipe



Wheat - 1 1/2 cup
Ghee/butter- 1/2 cup
Milk-1/4 cup (add more if dough looks dry)
Crushed/Powdered Sugar - 1/4 cup (as per taste - I take it less sweet)
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Green Cardamom/fennel seeds - 1tsp (I love adding saunf to my cookies. It lends a distinct taste & aroma) (I added black cardamom, but it did not make any difference)


How to make atta biscuits at home?


wheat cookies dough
Grind sugar and cardamom or fennel seeds together.
Take sugar and ghee. Mix well until fluffy.
In another bowl, sieve wheat flour and baking powder.
Start mixing dry and wet ingredients.
First, mix ghee/butter with wheat flour.
Then add milk. Prepare dough.
Make a log and place it in butter paper or aluminum foil and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Take out and cut in pieces of any shape.
Meanwhile preheat oven at 170 degrees for 10 minutes.


Grease baking tray and place cookies on it.
It's time to bake the whole wheat cookies. 
Place the tray in the MW oven (convection mode). Set a temperature of 170 degrees for 20 minutes (time varies in different ovens. It took me more than 25 minutes. I had to take out and bake them for 6 minutes after baking for 20 minutes. Then again, I baked for 6 more minutes. Total baking time in my case was 32 minutes).

Enjoy these eggless whole grain cookies with a cup of tea!

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?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not h…

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…
