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!
