What has brought you to this page is the caption "no butter, no sugar cookies." Correct?

You want kids to eat healthy. It is tough for parents to persuade tiny tots to take to healthy eating. With the market flooded with unhealthy stuff, it is understood that you worry about the intake of your kids. More so, when unhealthy diets cause all sorts of health issues. The incidence of diabetes milletus is rising in kids, which raises alarm bells for parents to guide their children to start taking healthy food. 

Unfortunately, it is a misperception that healthy food doesn't taste good. This blog is all about health, say healthy lifestyle, healthy eating, and fitness. You won;t find one healthy recipe that tastes bland. Morever, it is up to you as a parent to guide your children to choose healthy food. Fussy eaters or not!
You have got to train tiny tots to learn to eat healthy stuff - from cookies to cakes, from snacks to savories, from greens to vegetables, from desserts to meals. 
Some kids develop lactose intolerant as infants if parents start to feed them "outside" milk below the age of one. Such children often get allergic to milk and dairy products for a lifetime. This means they cannot enjoy the goodness of milk and milk products.

Nevertheless, I have come up with a recipe for lactose intolerant kids and elders alike. This healthy cookie recipe 

  • does not use dairy
  • is enriched with fiber from oats
  • is loaded with nut butter
  • has a good presence of walnuts
  • does not use refined flour/maida/white flour/all-purpose flour
  • lacks refined sugar
  • does not have even a pinch of raising agents - yes, it is naturally soft

Picky eaters  are going to love these nutty bites, which are loaded with healthy ingredients.
So let's see how to make oatmeal delicious!

How to make a kid-friendly cookie recipe?


Here's how to make almond butter at home:



Here is the video recipe of almond butter cookies - a kid-friendly recipe (unedited video, as I do not have enough time to edit the same.please bear with me)



I tried almond butter recipe just a few months back. In fact, I came to know about it then only. I have seen people share peanut butter recipes, but since we do not bring groundnuts home (yes, they tend to raise histamine levels that could worsen allergy symptoms and they are loaded with calories and fat), I wanted to try something on those lines with the healthiest nut - almonds.

Roasted almonds, cooled them, and then ground them to powder - added 1/2 tsp of oil and then churned more to get paste-like consistency. That's it - you have got almond butter prepared at home. It's that easy. On top of it, almond butter tastes like chocolate - though I do not eat nor like chocolatty flavor. But I somehow like almond butter - well, you have got it right - because it is healthier than normal butter.

Anyway, so when I made almond butter, I tried nana icecream with it - a blend of frozen bananas and almond butter - sprinkle little cinnamon and you have got one of the easiest, chocolatty flavored ice creams!

Since then I have been keen to use almond butter extensively - though I have tried just a couple of recipes with it, besides nana ice cream - almond butter oats ice cream and almond butter cake.

So it was high time I tried my favorite cookies using almond butter - so today was the day. Did the experiment disappoint? Of course not - because had it failed, I would not have shared it with you all! It's as simple as that!

Here's my simple almond butter cookie recipes:

oatmeal cookies no butter no sugar


Ingredients
almond butter

4 tbsp- homemade almond butter
3/4 cup- oats (better to dry roast oats and grind them to powder)
1/4 cup- wheat flour
4 tsp- jaggery powder (increase as per your sweet intake..I like it less sweet ..you may substitute with sugar powder)
1-2 tsp-milk ( if the dough feels dry -- I added)
walnuts or nuts of your choice - almonds, pistachios
Spice mix- I added tea powder; you may use cardamom, cinnamon or any other flavoring agent
3/4 tsp- baking soda (optional) - I didn't add - still my cookies turned out soft, but feel free to add if you want them softer


How To Make Oatmeal Delicious

oats almond butter cookies


  1. Mix dry ingredients - whole wheat flour and oats powder.
  2. Add them to the grinder or food processor.
  3. Next throw in almond butter and jaggery powder.
  4. Take out the mixture in a wide bowl or plate.
  5. If the dough feels dry, add milk for binding. I added 1/2 tsp of oat milk, but you can skip and add milk instead.
  6. It should be a semi-soft dough - not too soft, nor too hard.
  7. Give the shape of a log or balls and cover in a butter paper/parchment paper/aluminum foil.
  8. Refrigerate for 1 hour or longer. I kept it overnight.
  9. Preheat the oven (microwave convection) at 180 degrees. I air fried one batch and baked the other one.
  10. Take out the dough from the fridge.
  11. Cut into desired shapes - keep them thin but not too thin, as there is a risk of burning. Almond butter tends to burn fast. These cookies bake quickly. I cut them into 3 shapes - round, teddy bears, and rectangular.
  12. Place cookies on a baking tray at an even distance.
  13. Bake at 180 degrees for 10-12 minutes or longer (depending on your oven settings). I air fried them at 180 degrees for 12 minutes.  Please keep an eye on the cookies after 8 mts.
  14. Enjoy no sugar, no butter eggless whole wheat oatmeal cookies with a hot cup of tea/coffee/ milk.

    1. Roast almonds little...do not brown them too much. Well, these days I am loving airfried bakes more than microwaved ones. But both taste the same dear. Airfried ones are little crunchier than the baked ones.

    1. Sorry for replying so later. Thank you. Yes, you may go ahead and substitute some amount of almond butter with white butter. The taste shall improve. Regarding shelf life, I make small batches - last for about a week.

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…
