No Oil, Butterless Whole Wheat Cookies

No oil, butterless cookies with whole wheat for dieters

The secret to this simple cookie recipe lies in its beauty. Unravel a unique cookie-cracker recipe and indulge in these baked goodies guilt free, for these use not a single drop of oil or butter.

Did I say these are yummy and healthy if you are on diet?

This batch of whole wheat cookies butterless are unlike typical biscuits but these are certainly good to go for those willing to indulge in oil-free, guilt-free cookies.
This almond cookies recipe is for those who want to avoid the use of butter/ghee/oil or limit the quantity of fat. I did not add a drop of oil to the recipe, so they turned out hard. So I suggest adding little ghee/malai to the recipe to make your cookies soft from inside and crispy from outside.
These cookies taste awesome with the fennel aroma and goodness of almond milk. Despite their hardness, my hubby, who rarely eats cookies, loved them.

I didn't add baking powder, but have included it in the recipe for anyone that wishes to try. This may help make your cookies softer :)


Ingredients for Eggless Butterless Cookies with Whole Wheat: 

3/4 cup regular wheat flour
1/2 cup almond meal (I make it at home)
Sugar (depends on taste)
a pinch salt 
1 tsp baking powder or baking soda if you want it more like crackers
3/4 tsp dry roasted fennel seeds (you can add more or less depending on flavor preference)
1/2 cup almond milk (home made)

How to make simple cookies with whole wheat:

Let's make almond meal first.
Soak 1/2 cup almond in hot water for 5-8 minutes.
It will make it easier to remove their skin.
Then dry the almonds on burner in a kadhai. No need to add any oil. When almonds have dried, let them cool down.
Then you can grind them into dry powder. This way you will get almond meal.
Here's a video on how to make almond meal to make your task easier



  • Then take 1/4 cup of almond meal and add less than 1/4 cup of water to it. Grind almond meal and water. 
  • This way you will get almond milk. I added saunf (fennel seeds) and sugar along with almond meal.
  •  If you want to use butter/ghee, you can reduce the quantity of almond milk and add butter when grinding almond meal with water.
This will ensure that everything mixes well. Keep aside.
Take wheat flour. Add salt. Now add almond meal. Add almond milk little by little and make a soft dough.
Bake at 180 degrees for 15 minutes. It may take longer, so just keep watching closely.
Then once baked, take out the cookies on a stand and let them cool. Enjoy with a cup of hot 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.

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…
