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!!!

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body.  Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking.
