Crunchy Munchy Cornflakes Atta Cookies

crunchy munchy cornflakes cookies
Cookies, cookies everywhere, but not an unhealthy ingredient here!

Yes, I am again talking of healthy cookies. Somebody asked can cookies be healthy? I said no. But if you love cookies and cannot avoid these bakes, it is a good idea to switch to healthy ingredients to bake a set of healthy cookies.

I am sure the batch with no maida (white flour) would be healthier and tastier than its refined flour version.


  • If you love crunchy bites, try this cookie recipe.
  • If you love to indulge in guilt-free eating during tea time, try this batch.
  • If you think whole wheat cookies cannot taste as good as maida ones, you ought to give this healthy cookie recipe a try.
  • If you love cornflakes, you are in for some fun munching on this crunchy batch.

The secret to the crunchy munchy cookies lies in keeping cornflakes unpowdered.
You'll be greatly surprised to find that you can create a baking marvel or a best tea-time accompaniment with this recipe.

So what are you waiting for?

Give kids and family a surprise with this batch of healthy atta cookies loaded with cornflakes to add crunchiness.


I wasn't too find of cornflakes until I decided to experiment with them. Getting inspiration from a friend (Hetal Kamdar)'s cornflakes cookies, I decided to take my cookie making journey further - this time with whole wheat flour and cornflakes. What I ended up making has become history now - tastiest ever crunchy munchy cookies!

This is another healthy take on cookies :) I am sure you will love these crunchy bites

Ingredients:

1 cup wheat flour
1 cup corn flakes
1/4 cup powdered sugar (more or less depending on your taste)

Eggless Whole Wheat Cookies Procedure
  1. Crush corn flakes. I crushed with hands only. Do not grind or powder them.
  2. Mix wheat flour and cornflakes.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix sugar, ghee, green cardamom, and milk. Use a whisker to whisk so that the mixture gets light & fluffy. 
  4. Mix baking soda and lemon juice in a spoon. Immediately add it to the ghee-sugar mixture.
  5. Pour the ghee mixture over wheat-cornflakes.
  6. Make a soft dough. Do not knead. Just gather the ingredients.
  7. Make a log or simply gather everything together and place in an aluminum foil.
  8. Refrigerate the log for 1 hour. (I kept it in fridge for over 2 hours).
  9. Preheat the oven at 180 degrees for 10 mins.
  10. Take out the log and cut into desired shapes.
  11. Bake for 15-20 mins at 180 degrees.

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

3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi

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…
