When your dad says, these eggless cookies could sell for 500 bucks per pack, you need no other explanation for this batch of cashew cookies.

Then your brother tastes these melt-in-mouth beauties and suggests, "why do not you start your cookie business as well"?


Need I say more about these fiber-rich whole wheat cashew cookies?
Recently, I was in Patiala - my mayka - I tried 4-5 varieties of cookies there. Dad says this time the cookies were the best.

I even tried semolina lemon cake, which was loved by one and all. My dad continues to extol my efforts.

Let's talk a little bit about these eggless cashew cookies with oatmeal.


I do not bring cashews home, as munching on these delicious dry fruits may raise cholesterol levels in your body. If you are already suffering from cholesterol management issues, then I would suggest that you replace cashew with healthier nuts, for example, almonds and pistachios. You may even add toasted sesame seeds.

Anyway, for once-in-a-while indulgence, these eggless whole wheat cashew cookies can be tried. They won't disappoint you.

Another added advantage of this batch of eggless cookies is that you do not need any raising agent to turn these baked goodies soft and melt in mouth. The fat content will take care of the softness and crispness.

Atta Cookies for Kids Ingredients

airfryer cookies with whole wheat

11/2 cup- powdered oats (grind rolled/regular oats to powder)
1/2 cup- whole wheat flour
1/2 cup- sugar (more or less depending on your taste)
1/2 cup- ghee/clarified butter
2-3 tbsp- milk or 2 tbsp more if the dough looks dry or is difficult to bind
elaichi powder or fennel seeds for flavor
chopped cashew nuts - you may add pistachio and almonds as well
almond pista powder (optional)-1/4 cup
roasted flax seeds

How to make oatmeal delicious: Whole Wheat Cashew Cookies Eggless

  1. Whisk ghee and sugar powder until the mix looks light and fluffy.
  2. Add cardamom powder or fennel seeds.
  3. Sieve both flours 5-8 times. This is important to aerate the flours.
  4. Add powdered nuts and roastedflax seeds
  5. Sieve again.
  6. Now add dry ingredients to the wet mix.
  7. Mix with hands. Do not knead. Kneading will result in gluten formation, which will make cookies chewy. But we want crunchy biscuits. So just mix everything with hands, without kneading.
  8. Add milk - 1tbsp at a time until the dough comes together as a ball.
  9. We need a soft dough. Now drop in chopped cashew nuts. Roll into a log or ball.
  10. Wrap the dough ball in an aluminum foil/parchment paper.
  11. Refrigerate for 30 mts.
  12. Take out the dough and preheat oven/microwave convection for 10 mts at 180 degrees.
  13. I made these eggless cookies in an airfryer.
  14. The dough may feel hard to roll out initially. Keep it for 10 mts on the counter.
  15. Roll out like a thick chapati using a rolling pin. Make desired shapes. Do not forget to make insertions using a fork. This will allow deeper and even heating/baking/airfrying.
  16. Bake/or airfry the cashew cookies at 180 degrees for 15-20 mts.
  17. Allow the eggless cookies to cool down completely before munching on these bakes beauties.
  18. The yummy cashew cookies are ready to be dunked in a hot cup of tea or glass of milk.
  19. Of course, you may have these eggless bakes just like that.

    1. Well, try to follow the same process as mentioned. You may need to bake these from both sides on tawa. Bake one side for 5-6 mts and then flip the cookies one by one and again bake the other side for 6-8 minutes on low-medium flame.

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

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…
