Sattu Cookies For Kids No Baking Powder: How To Make Oatmeal Delicious


Looking for a kid-friendly recipe? Of course, serving good food to kids is no less than an exercise. Probably everyone finds it challenging, so do you. But did you know there are ways to sneak in healthy goodness to your tiny tots? I am quite familiar with childish pranks. I have seen my nephew and niece indulge in finding escape routes from whatever is served on their platter. But my one-and-a-half year-old niece loves to indulge in my simple cookie recipes. She is my sweetheart- bhua's paro!
sattu cookies no baking powder: how to make oatmeal delicious

This sattu cookie recipe is dedicated to my Paro. I love to experiment with healthy cookie recipes for Paro darling. This is one simple cookie recipe that you can prepare in an instant. It requires no fancy tools, nor any expensive equipment. Of course, all you need is sattu or roasted gram dal powder and oatmeal.

If you wish to make these sugarfree cookies, then you should have jaggery handy. Else, we can prepare sattu cookies with raw cane sugar. I am no longer buying white sugar, so all of my recipes would be sugarfree from now. But that does not make all of these recipes diabetes friendly, please keep this in mind.

Whether you have an oven or microwave convection or an airfryer or even a stovetop, you can prepare this simple cookie recipe in a jiffy.

Making these healthy airfryer cookies is all about gathering the ingredients, sifting the flours, whipping up the wet ingredients, mixing with hands, and rolling out into lime-sized balls before putting the cookies in the oven.

Isn't that simple?

Okay, let us check what are the benefits of sattu, first:

  • It's a good source of insoluble fiber. This means it is good for your intestines.
  • Sattu is low in glycemic index, which means it does not cause any blood glucose spike.It is a safe addition for diabetics for this reason. But this cookie recipe is not diabetic friendly. However, there are many diabetes-friendly recipes in this blog. You will also love some of the best diet food recipes here. 
  • Additionally, roasted gram is a rich source of iron, magnesium, and manganese, which makes it a handy addition to your diet. On top of it, sattu is low in sodium, so it is a healthy option for those with blood pressure issues.


There are numerous ways to include in your diet. Some of the common sattu recipes include:

  • Sattu drink for summers - it acts as a coolant!
  • Sattu roti - mix with whole wheat flour, oatmeal, and methi dana to make diabetes friendly flour.
  • Sattu parantha- mixed with onions and methi- there are numerous variations!
  • Sattu ladoo with jaggery and nuts
  • Sattu cookies
  • Sattu halwa too!

Okay so lets come back to the sattu maavu cookie recipe, though this does not have all the ingredients to be classifed as sattu maavu!

Ingredients
3/4  cup- sattu (roasted black gram, Bengal gram/black chickpea flour)
1 cup- oatmeal/powdered oats
1 tbsp- desi ghee/clarified butter
3 tbsp- olive oil
1 tsp- milk or little more for binding

How to make Sattu Cookies for kids

The best thing about this no baking powder cookie recipe in an airfryer is that you can vary the proportions to suit the taste preferences of your family.

  • Whisk ghee, olive oil, raw cane sugar, and milk until fluffy.
  • Throw in a pinch of salt.
  • Take a sieve and sift sattu, oatmeal.
  • Add dry roasted sesame seeds.
  • Mix everything with hands. DO NOT KNEAD.
  • Keep the dough as is covered for 30 minutes.
  • This will allow the flours to absorb the moisture on their own rather than you forcing the same into them.
  • After half an hour, the dough should have hardened a bit.
  • If it is difficult to roll and looks too hard, add 1 tsp of milk and gather the ingredients.
  • Roll into a thick chapati or make lime sized balls and use a fork to make insertions.
  • Preheat oven or microwave convection at 170 degrees for 10 mts.
  • I baked sattu cookies in the airfryer.
  • Preheat the airfryer for 3 mins.
  • Place cookies at a distance from each other and bake or airfry at 170 degrees for 10-12 mins
  • Temperature settings vary from oven to oven, so keep an eye on your kid-friendly cookies and bake them little longer if they look unbaked. But do not brown these too much.
  • Allow the sattu cookies to cool down completely on a cooling rack or wire mesh outside the oven/airfryer before munching on them.
  • These cookies should be done rather quickly.
  • Enjoy melt-in-the-mouth cookies for kids and elders alike.
  • Isn't it simple to bake a batch of deliciousness? Now, do you still wonder how to make oatmeal delicious? If so, do not forget to check our ever-growing list of oatmeal recipes here. We have more than 100+ oats recipes.

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…
