Healthy Oatmeal Biscuits With Olive Oil: No Sugar Nankhatai Recipe


I am a healthy cookie lover. I accept. Now my friends have started to call me "cookie queen." 

Na, there is still a long way to go before I can accept that title. 

I am still learning, and in baking, you aren't perfect at any time. The learning curve is very very long.

But I am not one to give up though!

In my pursuit to bake another healthy cookie batch, I experimented with olive oil and oatmeal. This does make an awesome combination - both for taste and health.

This is one batch of cookies for weight loss that you would want to try even if you are on a diet.

Wondering how?


See, oatmeal is a wonder food. If I say it is a super food, it won;t be wrong.


Tried olive oil cookies on tawa, with the addition of oats. I am starting to love these cookies more than those available in the confectionery. The best thing about making these cookies is that you do not need a MW/Oven and can bake these on a skillet. I have tried a number of cookies - almond, coconut, simple wheat flour - and love everything home made. Before starting to bake last year, I had never entertained the thought of making cookies at home but after my first attempt at baking, I have never looked back- won't ever buy from the bakery again 

With the goodness of oats, jaggery, and olive oil, these do become healthy cookies! Of course, we are not using sugar in this recipe, which makes this set of healthy whole wheat flour cookies even healthier. Any takers?


Why tawa cookies?

  1. Easy to bake
  2. Quick to make
  3. Healthy, tasty, and divine
  4. You can keep an eye on what's going on with your healthy cookies
Olive oil is a miracle find - a staple for the Mediterranean diet. It is loaded with health benefits. When you bake a batch of oatmeal cookies with olive oil, you certainly get the benefits of olive oil. But remember, I am talking about extra virgin olive oil. Please do not buy pomace olive oil - it isn't for cooking use.



Olive oil:
  1. Reduces cardiovascular risk
  2. Reduces cancer risk 
  3. Reduces risk of type 2 diabetes
  4. Boosts bone health and reduces risk of osteoporosis


Recipe

1/4 cup jaggery (you can use more as per your preference) - you may use sugar instead
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tsp cream /butter/ghee

1 cup- wheat flour
1/2 cup- gram flour
1/4 cup semolina (suji), 2 tbsp oats
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp roasted fennel seeds (you may use powder as well)
1- 2 tsp -milk (if the dough feels dry - I added)

Mix baking powder , wheat flour, gram flour, and semolina well. 

Add jaggery and fennel to the powder. Add oats. Now add olive oil. 
Mix well. If the dough feels dry, add cream and milk. Roll into a dough form. Press the dough with a flat circular board (chakli) and give your choicest shapes.
You can use a cookie cutter.
Take a skillet (tawa) and put a greased steel plate on it. 
Place cookies on the plate and cover with another plate. Cook on low flame.
Check after 4-5 minutes. Then change side of the cookies. Again cook for 3 minutes or more.
That's it.

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.

Ever since my airfryer homecoming, I have always chosen to go for airfryer cookies, and not touched my convection ever since. That's the beauty of airfryer baking.

I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I dec…
