raw cane sugar from More stores


Ingredients: What Goes Into Diet Cookies for Weight Loss
1 cup- oatmeal (1 cup= 175 ml)
½ cup- whole wheat flour
4 spoons (I used regular spoons here)- oil (I have used saffola sunflower oil/ feel free to use any seed oil/olive oil)
3 spoons- hung curd/Greek Yogurt (quickest way to make hung curd..click here)
4 tsp- cane sugar (I do not buy white sugar anymore - raw cane sugar is way healthier, since it has natural minerals that are otherwise lost during processing of white sugar)
Cinnamon powder and fennel powder
Pinch of rock salt/mineral salt
Nuts of your choice (I have used toasted almonds and sunflower seeds to top the cookies)


A Little About Raw Cane Sugar

You get raw cane sugar as a byproduct from sugarcane processing - here goes the list of byproducts --
first, sugarcane juice -
then molasses.-
heated molasses give you jaggery
since jaggery has some impurities, it is refined to make raw cane sugar -
further refining gives you brown sugar -
final refined product is white sugar
bura is powdered white sugar

How to Make Weight Loss Cookies


Take a bowl and add oil and hung curd to it.
Throw in cane sugar.
Add salt, fennel powder,  cinnamon powder, and whisk very well until the mix gets nice and fluffy.
Does it look light and fluffy?
If so, go ahead to the next step.
Take a strainer and sift both flours well. The more the better.
Add the flours to the oil mix and mix. 
PLEASE NO KNEADING REQUIRED HERE.
We are going to make a crunchy cookie batch and not a chewy one here.
Kneading will help form gluten and your cookies might turn out chewy.
So the idea is to mix everything and leave it covered for half an hour on the kitchen counter shelf.
Throw in the toasted nuts.
After 30 minutes, the dough would look beautiful and should have absorbed the wet mix.
Let's go to making weight loss cookies with the dough.
Either roll out into a thick chapati or make lime sized balls.
Do not play with the dough much now.
Make cookie shapes and bake at 170 degrees for 12-15 mins.
I have airfried this batch of weight loss cookies with oatmeal.
Airfry the cookies at 170 degrees for 12 mins. If they look unbaked, airfry for a couple of mins more.
Allow your weight loss digestives to cool down completely before storing them in an airtight container.
These are perfect munchies for your tea time.

PointsPlus is the new name for the Weight Watchers plan, and it's a good name. Weight Watchers built a great business on teaching people to watch their food intake by associating point values to all foods and recipe components.

  8. I believe that this is the reason most people seek weight loss programs, not because of a true desire to be lean, but an intense desire to be wanted, to be sexy, to be considered attractive and to feel good about their body when surrounded by people who's opinions they consider important.the fat diminisher review

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…
