Sugarless Pistachio Digestives: Simple Cookie Recipe

Yes, it's digestives again! But this time there is a pista twist to the digestives. If you are bored of the typical digestives, then why not experiment with the atypical ones? I hope you remember my badam digestives Nutri choice like that were loved by one and all. Now it's time to add pistachios to bake this yummy goodness.

Well, the idea to include pistachio in digestives has been flocking in my head for quite some time. I have been willing to add pista flavor to some of my recent recipes - for example, my creamless, sugarless, milk-free pistachio kulfi, which got me some very good reviews.

Pista digestives are unique and different from regular digestives in taste. Texturewise they look the same- though their greenish tint sets them apart. I love the pista color and flavor. What about you? Not to mention, the umpteen number of pistachio benefits.

Do you remember my 2-ingredient kid-friendly pista ladoos?

Whole Wheat Marie Biscuit: Sugarless Cookie Recipe

If you are not a cookie lover, you still like Marie biscuits right? Why? Well, the reason could be their light, flaky texture, subtle sweetness, milky goodness, and health tag attached to Marie biscuits. But market stuff is still junk - loaded with white flour, white sugar, flavoring agents, and preservatives. What more would you expect from commercial baked goodies? Homemade is homemade after all. If you could recreate the magic at home, it has no equivalent, right?  Yes, homemade atta Marie biscuits are born!


So let's get started with the Marie biscuit mania and see if we can come closer. Seems like my second atta Marie biscuit attempt has brought me closer (anyway, it is much healthier than market junk), but I am not someone who will accept defeat so easily. I want to recreate the exact same taste and I will continue to experiment further until the result is completely in my favor.

The process of making this simple cookie is easy. But there are a few tricks to recreate the mag…

Punjabi Atta Biscuits With Jaggery: Whole Wheat Cookies No Baking Powder

If you think of biscuits, you are almost certain to travel back in time to your childhood. Like me, you, too, have some fond "atta biscuit" memories, right? My atta biscuit nostalgia reminds me of my childhood when I would visit my mama (maternal uncle) and he would order a batch of whole wheat cookies from a local baker. The biscuits were then packed in a newspaper and I would indulge in them the most. In fact, we all fell in love with these typical atta biscuits and would bring tins of the same back home. What was so special about these biscuits with whole wheat flour was a hint of black cardamom powder that lent these a distinct flavor. I have grown up now - almost into my 30s, but my love for these nostalgic cookies remains the same.

After I started baking cookies at home, these atta biscuits have been on my mind, but I did not have the right equipment to give the biscuits their distinct shape, which makes these stand out from the rest.  My hubby ordered a cookie press …

Crunchy Eggless Whole Wheat Tea Rusk: Sugarless Biscotti With Jaggery

In India, rusks are a favorite tea-time accompaniment, next only to cookies. My family is no exception either. We have been fondly in love with these double-baked biscottis - eggless of course. The best thing about biscottis is that they retain their crunch even after a dunking round in milk or tea. Cake rusks or even plain saunf rusks have been a childhood favorite. These surely make me feel nostalgic, taking me in time to my childhood when I used to visit a nearby rusk bakery and watch trays of plain rusks lined up waiting for their turn to get into the oven. Aww...I still remember that clearly. My love for rusks has been eternal.


When I shifted to Delhi, I would often crave for saunf rusks, because the taste and flavor of biscottis here never appealed to me. So I made sure any return visit to my hometown was incomplete without a bag full of cookies and rusks. Yes, such has been my love for these baked goodies. I have explored several bakeries and confectionery stores in the Nation…

3-Ingredient Kid-Friendly Biscuits: Sugarless Paro Cookies With Whole Wheat, Jaaggery

There's a lot that goes into baking healthy stuff, right? When you want to bake for kids, you have got to watch out the ingredients closely. What kind of fat is good for kids? What type of flour should be used? Do we need more fiber? Will this particular ingredient work in a kid-friendly recipe? Of course, you don't want to include anything that would go against the health of your tiny tot and turn the cookie unhealthy. Well, if you, too, are looking for a healthy cookie recipe for kids, your wishes have been granted here. My parents were returning to their home so I wanted to make healthy biscuits for everyone, especially my little 2-year-old niece Paro. So what next? Thus sprung upon the idea of these Paro cookies or teething biscuits.

I am sure this simple cookie recipe will work for your little one too, for it uses just 3 ingredients - 1 cup = 235 ml =16 tbsp
Whole  wheat flour -2/3 cup
Ghee/malai/cream- 4 tbsp (malai is the cream that settles on top of boiled milk)

Sugarless Vegan Banana Atta Cake: Baking With Whole Grains

I experiment to share!
I experiment because I care!
I experiment to enrich lives!
I experiment to bring out positive vibes!
I experiment to change the "bland" notion associated with health!
I experiment so you can turn healthy baking hobby into wealth!

Mom and dad were here and they are not too fond of cakes. But I had 4 bananas staring at me- as they were 2 days old and I do not like the taste of "stale" bananas. Hey, I do not like baked bananas too - but with God's grace, my two banana cakes with whole wheat do not have an overpowering banana flavor. This atta cake is special because it includes a variety of ingredients - all healthy and delicious!

Let's come back to the eggless banana cake recipe with whole wheat.

Before that, I want to make it aptly clear that I am no cake expert, not even a baking professional. I have not learned nor tried to learn the baking basics still. My bakes thus far are the result of experiments and a number of failures. I sti…
