Nutrichoice-Like Digestives: Almond Milk Cookies With Oats

Nutrichoice-like badam milk digestives :) Low saturated fat, no white sugar, no maida How many nutrichoice digestives fans here? I got a request from a friend to come up with an alternative to nutrichoice badam milk cookies. I requested her to share the ingredient list, since I no longer buy market junk and then planned my own choice of ingredients to come up with something similar. To my surprise, everyone in the family simply fell in love with these milk badam digestives. I hope I have done justice to the recipe.

How many likes for nutrichoice digestives? What if I say I have come closer to imitating the milk badam digestives from Britannia's nutrichoice? No, I have not tasted the packed biscuits, but I feel I have come closer to the recipe to recreate my own milk badam digestives. This is a nutritious cookie with fiber rich oats and bran.

If you have tried my other digestives recipes and liked them, then you already know that this will be a hit in your home, because we have followed the same process and made a few inclusions here and there to give these a nutrichoice-like feel.

1 cup= 250 ml
2 tbsp- milk powder (I use Patanjali's skimmed milk powder)
2 tbsp- whole wheat bran (I love to include bran in my digestives recipes)
1 cup- oat flour (you may take 2/3 cup oat powder and 1 cup whole wheat flour - or stick to my version- I am always liberal when it comes to adding oats)
2/3 cup- whole wheat flour (you may use multigrain flour)
2 tbsp- raw cane sugar /dry /sieved jaggery powder
2 tbsp- honey or agave syrup or maple syrup or more for a sweeter version
2 tbsp- milk/thick curd (you may add 1 tsp more)
2 tbsp- desi ghee/butter (I use homemade ghee) -refrigerate ghee/butter for half an hour before using
3 tbsp +1 tbsp- olive oil/ seed oil/saffola (I do not use soybean/canola/pomace olive oil) - keep aside 1 tbsp oil, add only if the atta doesn't look like wet crumbs (we do not want it to look dry)
1 tsp- baking soda (I added 1/2 tsp but if you want it crunchier, go for more)
4 tbsp- almond powder/almond meal (choice is yours - both almond powder and meal are different)- I have used plain powdered almonds

How to make Nutri choice-like digestives (Milk badam cookies)

  • As you can see in all of my digestives recipes, we begin with collecting the dry ingredients in a bowl. Make sure you sieve the dry ingredients well, so that baking soda is evenly distributed. When I say dry ingredients, this includes whole wheat flour or atta, oats powder,  milk powder, bran, badam powder, raw cane sugar powder and baking soda. Since almond powder and bran are coarse, they may not pass through the sieve completely. Worry not! Sift everything together and then mix all the coarse contents that remain in the sifter.

  • Next comes the mixing stage - yes, we will be mixing the liquid ingredients. Here, you should take a small bowl and mix milk and honey. Whisk both and keep aside.

  • Add cold ghee and oil to the flour. Rub the ghee into the flour unless you get a wet/sticky bread crumb-like texture. If your flour doesn't give you a wetty look, you may add another teaspoon of oil/ghee. I didn't feel the need to add more :) But some types of flours absorb more, so you may add an extra teaspoon or tablespoon, whatever fits your needs.

  • Next add the milk-honey mix to the bread crumb-like flour. Gather the ingredients into a ball. DO NOT KNEAD. NEVER KNEAD ANY OF MY COOKIE DOUGH. YOU WILL NOT GET THE BEST RESULTS.

Does the flour come together as a ball or log? IF so, your nutrichoice digestive dough is ready. Roll the dough like a thick (1/4 inch) chapati - not too thick nor too thin.

  • Take a cap/bangle or cookie cutter to cut shapes.
  • Prick each cookie with a fork if you want to. I did this for half the batch.
  • Place the cookies on a baking tray and refrigerate for 20-30 mts. This will prevent them from expanding in the oven. You may go ahead and bake them right away too. Your choice.

I refrigerated half the dough.

  • Preheat the oven/mw convection to 160 degrees for 10 minutes. I have airfried the digestives.

Preheat the airfryer to 160 degrees for 5 mts.

  • Bake/airfry the badam milk digestives for 12-15 mts at 160 degrees.

Check if the edges have browned by then. If not, you may bake them for a couple of minutes extra. The cookies may still look soft when you take them out of the oven, worry not. These will get crunchier as they cool.
Allow the digestives to cool down before storing in an airtight container. Do give this airfryer cookie recipe a try.

Disclaimer: I do not buy biscuits so try to come up with my own cookie recipes, for this is a healthier alternative to market stuff.
