Let's get to the recipe of our no bake coconut cake:
eggless coconut cake ni bake

Ingredients

1 cup- powdered oats
1 cup- coconut powder (dry)
1 cup- nuts (almonds, pistachios, walnuts)
3/4-1 cup- dates (pitted and deseeded)
1-2 tbsp- cold water 
1/4-1/2 cup- cocoa powder (for that chocolaty flavor for kids - I did not add, as I was making it for someone who is allergic to caffeine---but certainly adding it the next time I make no bake cake for my Paro)

Procedure: How to make eggless coconut cake no bake

Soak nuts in half a cup of water for half a hour. This will help in their better absorption. Additionally soaking will turn them a little soggy, which is exactly what we need for this recipe. 

Pulse oats in a mixer, as we need them in powdered form.

Deseed dates. Let's start with our eggless no bake cake  now.

Grind nuts to powder. Discard the water in which nuts were soaked.
Add dates to the food processor next. Do not remove the powdered nuts.
Pulse the ingredients.
Add powdered oats and coconut. Run the processor again. If you are using cocoa powder, add it now to make a no bake chocolate cake.
Add 1-2 tbsp of water and let the processor run for the final time.
Remove the dough in a bowl.
Start gathering it with hands.
If you have a springform cake tin, you may add the ingredients there and press it with hands until the top flattens. I do not have such a cake tin, so I covered the cake with butter paper and placed it in a plastic container. Keep it covered and pressed with weight in the freezer for 2 hours.
Unmold and decorate the cake.
I served the eggless coconut cake as is without any frosting.
The leftover doubled up as granola bar.

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…
