Oatmeal Cookies Eggless With Chickpea Gluten Free Flour


besan oatmeal cookies

Oats seem to have become an integral part of my cooking. I can't think of recipes without including this healthy grain - which is the healthiest of all! Earlier, my impression of oats was something bland, tasteless and boring. I never wanted to include it in my meals. But the story has changed now, especially ever since my food experiments begun and I realized the importance of this fibrous grain.

By now you already know that I am a cookie lover and keep experimenting with different flour combinations to bake healthy, tasty cookies. I have already tried this combination before - but this time I included pistachio along with almonds. The besan oats cookies are the best I have ever had!

This is one easy oatmeal cookie recipe that you can try on stovetop. Yes, absolutely. However, if you wish to try it in oven, go for it
Some of my friends were surprised with the gram flour-oatmeal combination, but trust me you get the tastiest, crunchiest, and healthy oatmeal cookies you have ever had.

If you are in love with old fashioned cookies, then you have got to try this recipe – the unique combination of gluten-free chickpea flour and oatmeal makes this batch healthy and delicious.
Next I am gonna try oatmeal raisin cookies, for I am wondering how the combination would work. I think these would be chewy cookies with a sweet, savory flavor. Isnt it? Worry not, the next time, I try this recipe would love to share it with you all.


Homemade oatmeal cookies without brown sugar are certainly a hit in my family. In fact, this batch was made for my family in Patiala, and every one loved the distinctive taste of these cookies.

Let's come back to the recipe:

Procedure

gram flour oatmeal cookies eggless


  1. Preheat oven (mw convection) at 180 degrees for 10 mts.
  2. Sieve besan, oatmeal and baking powder 2-3 times so that baking powder mixes evenly with the flour.
  3. In a bowl or food processor/grinder, add sugar, oil, ghee, and elaichi. Mix very well so that the mixture gets airy and fluffy
  4. Chop pista and almonds and spread them over a plate. Now drop the wet mixture over these.
  5. Next add the flour mixture with the wet ingredients.
  6. Gather the ingredients. Do not knead.
  7. If the dough feels dry, add milk. If you feel it's still dry, add one more tbsp of milk.
  8. We do not want sticky dough. It should be wet enough to bind easily.
  9. Make small lemon sized balls with the dough.
  10. Grease a baking tray and place the flattened balls over it.
  11. Make sure each cookie is placed at a distance from the other. Otherwise they will not bake properly.
  12. Bake at 180 degrees for 12-14 mts. Enjoy this healthy batch of flavorful besan oatmeal cookies with a hot cup of tea.
  13. These crispy besan cookies are just perfect for any occasion - remind me of besan ladoo :)

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…
