Happiness is baking healthful goodness for your loved ones. The feeling you get when you receive the best compliments from your family. Happiness surely is your bhabhi and brother saying these cookies do not have a match, adding they do not feel like having the market junk now.

I have tried digestives an umpteen number of times, experimenting here and there and making modifications every time. What makes these digestives special is the low amount of fat, subtle sweetness, and high fiber from oats and whole wheat bran. Absolutely crunchy and yummy. Digestives can't get yummier and healthier than this!




Earlier, I have tried Nutrichoice digestives and Mcvities digestives. This time I wanted to include a good amount of bran since I love these fibrous, tiny bits to recreate my digestive cookie recipe Patanjali like. Do check out my weight loss digestives recipe for the health freak in you.

PS: This digestives cookie recipe is not for diabetic patients, as it uses a little amount of raw cane sugar and honey that have a high GI and can instantly cause blood sugar spike. I will come up with a diabetes-friendly digestives recipe soon.

Why Chocolate Digestives

Well, if you are looking for ways to make oatmeal delicious, then this is the best way to feed oats to your little ones. The chocolate digestives with oatmeal is a delicious way to feed fiber-rich oats to your tiny tots.

Homemade whole wheat chocolate digestives Ingredients

No. of cookies: 30

1 cup- powdered oats
2 tbsp- whole wheat bran
3/4 cup- whole wheat flour
2 tbsp- raw cane sugar (add 1 tsp extra for chocolate digestives)
2 tbsp- honey or maple syrup (people have reservations about using honey for baked goodies. My research shows no honey toxicity connection thus far, so I go ahead with using honey in my bakes)
2 tbsp- cold butter or ghee (refrigerate ghee for an hour before using it in the digestives recipe) 
3 tbsp- olive oil (add 1/2tbsp oil extra for chocolate digestives)
2 tbsp- milk

How to make the best Oatmeal digestives: Patanjali/Mcvities Like


chocolate digestives

  • Take oats, whole wheat flour, bran, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Sift well so that baking soda is evenly distributed. Here, I would like to inform that I am trying to bake digestives without any raising agents. Let me see if I get best results.
  • Take a separate small bowl (katori) and add milk and honey to it. Mix very well until honey is well mixed. 
  • Throw in raw cane sugar, ghee, and olive oil. Rub with hands. Make sure you rub the flour really well. This will help add that extra crunch to the digestives. The flour should look like wet bread crumb mixture. Remember, it should not be dry. If it looks dry, you may add extra oil. I did not need that.
  • Add the honey-milk mix to the flour. The flour mix may look a little sticky. But that's okay. Just gather the mixture and refrigerate for 20-30 mts.
  • Preheat oven/mw convection to 170 degrees for 10mts. I have airfried the digestives. Preheat airfryer for 4 mts.
  • Take out the cookie dough from the fridge and roll it out like a thick roti.
  • Use a bangle or cookie cutter to cut shapes.
  • Use a fork to make insertions in the cookies.
  • Place the cookies on a baking tray at a distance from each other.
  • Bake/airfry for 12 minutes or until the edges start to brown slightly.
  • Remove the chocolate digestives from the oven when done and place on a cooling rack.

The best digestive cookies are ready- start munching these baked beauties with a cup of milk or tea. Have you tried out my instant OPOS tea or dum tea or masala chai - the 5-minute tea recipe?

What makes these digestives different and special is the inclusion of bran and the honey-milk concoction. I feel this mix does the magic here. I am in love with these digestives and would love to grab one right away. What I love about these digestives is the subtle sweetness and crunch. The tiny grainy bran is what makes munching on these oatmeal digestives a beautiful experience. Are you ready to experiment with the best digestive cookies? Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

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…
