Process

  • Flatten each ball and add the filling in each. Make a ball again and properly close the ends.
  • Grease appe/paniyaram/aebleskiver pan.
  • Add each ball to the panirayam pan.

  • I served them with home-made amla candy-imli chutney.


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)
1/4 cup ghee/butter (you may take more if the dough feels dry)
3 tbsp milk (more or less depending on your preference - if you increase the quantity of ghee, you will need less amount of milk)

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. Again, I did it with hands only.
  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.
  12. Enjoy crispy, crunchy cornflakes atta cookies.
