BourBon Biscuits With Whole Wheat: A Kid-Friendly Simple Cookie Recipe


Chocolate cookies on your mind?What about Bourbon biscuits? Well, I am no longer a chocolate lover that I once was. Nevertheless, I have been waiting to try out these chocolate cookies for some time. Now the time was ripe enough for me to give these baked beauties a try. I had a visit scheduled to my mom's place, and my nephew and niece are chocolate lovers, just like all little kiddos.

So could there be a better time to bake whole wheat bourbon biscuits? I wanted to make it healthier with whole wheat and oatmeal. This gives you an easy oatmeal recipe to try out.

You may want to add a natural flavoring agent to make the eggless whole wheat cookies more kid friendly. I did not add anything and felt that the aroma of ghee was a little overpowering for the little ones. Nevertheless, my 1 and a half-year-old Paro loved munching on the homemade chocolate cookies with whole wheat flour. I am yet to deliver the second batch to my nephew Sherry. Keeping fingers crossed!

A little about Bourbon Biscuits

The sandwich type chocolate cookies ideally consist of thin rectangular layers, one topped with another using a chocolate buttercream filling.

I have made these Bourbon biscuits without filling. But if you are interested, go ahead with whipping up 2 tbsp butter with 2 tsp cocoa powder and 1 tbsp sugar powder (more as per taste preferences). Whisk the filling well until incorporated and then layer it inside the biscuits one atop another.

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.

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…
