Homemade Oatmeal Recipe With Coconut: Crunchy Healthy Cookies With Oats

oats coconut cookies
By now each one of you know I am cookie lover. Yes, my tea time is not complete without cookies. But I am always looking to make biscuits with a healthy twist - no all-purpose flour, of course.
Oats is a must-include ingredient in most of my cookie recipes.

My cookie recipes use less butter; rather, I prefer to substitute butter with oil, which is little healthier than clarified butter. Milk and curd make great binding agents. Curd is a perfect substitute to eggs.

This time, this fiber-rich cereal grain has made a direct entry in my cookie recipe - yea, it is the main ingredient. Crispy, crunchy, and so coconutty!!! I am loving this batch of coconut cookies more than my previous recipes using coconut. Here are a few versions with a slight change of ingredients -
oats coconut cookies, wheat coconut cookies, and atta coconut cookies.

Ingredients
coconut oats cookies

1 cup- powdered oats
1 cup- dry coconut powder
1/2 cup- atta (wheat flour)
1/4 cup- suji (semolina)
1/4 cup- besan (gram flour/chickpea flour)
1 tbsp- curd
2 tbsp- ghee
1 tbsp-oil
1 tsp- baking powder (I used 1/2 tsp- baking soda instead)
1 tbsp- milk (or more if the dough feels dry)


Procedure

  1. Add oats, coconut powder, atta, suji, besan, and baking powder to the grinder.
  2. Run the processor so that baking powder mixes well.
  3. Add ghee, curd, oil and run the processor again.
  4. Take out the mixture in a plate/bowl.
  5. Add milk if the dough feels dry.
  6. Should be a soft dough -though not too soft.
  7. Preheat oven (mw convection) at 180 degrees for 8-10 mts.
  8. Roll out into shapes of your choice.
  9. Bake for 15 mts at 180 degrees.
  10. Take out on a cooling rack. ENjoy!

How To Make Detox Drink at Home With Himalayan Sea Salt

detox drink
There is so much of buzz about detoxification and detox drinks these days. I often make lime water as a detox drink, without adding sugar.

Yes, this is how I go about it. This is the best thing to do to cut down your sugar intake. Of course, there are days in a year when you cannot follow your healthy regimen.

These are the days when you are holidaying. I am in my sasural (in-law's place) and have had an overload of unhealthy stuff, since there was a big family function here that continued for days and days. Then we got feast invitations from relatives. We have had so many feasts that the word feast now sounds like beast  to me ! Fortunately, feasts are over now and we are getting to eat healthy home-made stuff by my dearest MIL, who is a bundle of talent and has some amazing culinary skills.

Now let's come back to my detox drink, because if I start talking about my sasu ma, I will forget the recipe.

We have been using fennel or saunf since childhood for stomach ailments. We also use it when brewing tea. I love my tea with a hint of masala!

Fennel Benefits

Often used as a mouth freshener, fennel is a time-tested ancient herbal remedy for digestion. Belonging to the parsley family, fennel is a powerhouse of metabolism boosting nutrients and rich in vitamins, including B1, B2, B3, and minerals.Surprisingly, it is packed with fiber, which makes it a natural appetite suppressant. Metabolism is the speed at which your body uses energy from food.

What's more, fennel helps in the digestion of fats in liver and removes toxins from the body. SO what are you waiting for? Start chewing fennel seeds today to detoxify your body, freshen your breath, clear your sinus, and manage weight happily!!

I have prepared a detox drink with fennel. While you can simply brew fennel and soak them in water overnight to enjoy the full benefits of detoxification, you may want to mix it with lemon to double the benefits.

Do check the benefits of Himalayan sea salt here.

Here's my simple recipe:

Ingredients
1 tsp- saunf (fennel seeds)
2 cups of water
Himalayan pink salt/sendha namak/sindhi namak- 2 fat pinches or more
1 lemon
1/2 tsp- goond katira (optional)
