Eggless Olive Oil Cookies

Add caption
When health is your top priority, taste can definitely take a back seat. But with a little twist and experiment, you can make a perfect match between taste and health.

These olive oil cookies are a typical example of the marriage of health and taste. Having baked these olive oil cookies successfully, I feel on cloud 9.

But with the goodness of olive oil and aroma of fennel (which is a loaded with health benefits), there is no comprising the taste! Give these crunchy cookies a try for health sake and enjoy a taste you have never had earlier! As someone who is a strict disciplinarian as far as health is concerned, I keep experimenting with cookie recipes - just trying to find a perfect match between health and taste. After having tried cookie recipes with clarified butter (which isn't too good for cholesterol), I experimented with olive oil. Voila. This doesn't disappoint either. Happy me!!

Happy to share the recipe here:

1 cup sugar (I used half cup only)
1/2 cup olive oil
3 tsp fresh cream

1cup- wheat flour
1/2 cup- gram flour
1/4 cup semolina
1/4tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp roasted fennel seeds
2-3 tsp -milk (if the dough feels dry, add more)


Mix sugar, cream, and olive oil. The recipe calls for blending this in a blender.


Mix baking powder , wheat flour, gram flour, and semolina well. 
Add fennel to the oil mixture.
Mix dry and wet ingredients. Roll into a dough and give your choicest shapes.
Of course, you can use a cookie cutter.
Now, I tried making these on a greased non-stick skillet (tawa) or pan.

Take an iron skillet. Place a nonstick tawa over it. Grease it.
Place cookies on it and cover it.

Cook on medium flame.
Check after 3-4 minutes. Then change side of the cookies. Again cook for 3 minutes or more.
That's it.
If you wanna bake them in oven - set a temperature of 180 degrees and bake them for 10-12 mins or more.


I made these on a skillet -- wanted to break the monotony of baking in MW. I feel this is a healthier version, though the cookies bake quickly here and you need to keep an eye on them. They may get a little too browned at the bottom, but that's okay!!!

Sugarless Besan Ladoo : A Healthy Chickpea Gluten Free Recipe

besan ladoo Is chickpea gluten free? This is one of the most common question asked by few besan lovers. I have always been fond of besan (gram flour) ladoos. But hubby doesn't find them interesting enough to relish them. Yes, I am not joking. He loves boondi ladoos. So I have never tried making besan ladoos before. This Diwali, I wanted to give my favorite ladoos a try. But yes, the health freak in me questioned whether I was really prepared to give in my health goals to relish my favorite besan ladoos. Then the thought of giving a twist to these ladoos struck my imagination. The rest is history - the besan ladoos use just 1 tbsp of ghee (clarified butter) with no SUGAR.

To my surprise, when I offered hubby to taste them, he said "these are really good." Need I ask for more? But
