Easy Atta Cookies Recipe: No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda


almond oats cookies
The word "atta cookies" sends me back in history. Yes, I start feeling nostalgic, because I have some fond memories of atta cookies.

I remember my mama or maternal uncle bringing boxes of atta biscuits at my nani's place everytime we visited them during summer vacations. Then when it was time to return to our place, he would bring more of those boxes for us to take back home. Aww...I am getting nostalgic.

The atta cookies were simple and yet so delicious. The simple cookies with black cardamom flavor were no match to the cookies sold out in confectionaries these days.

You could munch on those healthy bites all the time. I still remember unpacking those baked goodies bursting with the flavors of black cardamom - opening those aluminum tins and then unpacking the atta bites from their newspaper packs.

I so wish to travel back to childhood now. Ever single memory gives me goosebumps now.  I have the best childhood I could imagine.

So my childhood memories inspire today's atta cookies post. Black cardamom or badi elaichi lifts the taste and aroma of this cookie batch. I have a special liking for moti elaichi and love to flavor my regular tea with black cardamom.

So, welcome to another homemade whole wheat cookie recipe post.

As you know this is a place with  a plethora of homemade healthy cookies that you cannot find elsewhere.

This website is your recourse to getting homemade whole grain cookie recipes that are not only healthy, but also crunchy bites that you can munch on at tea time or simply dunk in your big glass of milk.

You will forget packet biscuits available outside. The best part of this atta cookies recipe is that it does not use any raising agents.
The atta cookies with no baking powder, no baking soda are too sumptuous to resist.

Badam  Atta Cookies Recipe: 

3/4 cup whole wheat flour (always check the labels for the type of ingredient - make sure you buy "WHOLE" wheat flour, and not wheat flour alone, which is maida)
1/4 cup milk powder
1/4 cup ghee/ butter or 4 tbsp
Jaggery powder (more or less)
a pinch salt 
1 tsp black cardamom (moti elaichi) powder
2  tsp of milk

Authentic Atta Cookies With Cardamom Flavor



  • Sieve whole wheat flour and milk powder together for 5- 6 times. This will help make the flour airy and give you crunchy cookies without baking powder.
  • Add elaichi powder. Remember to use moti elaichi only, which gives this recipe the authentic aroma and taste. 
  • In a separate bowl, take ghee and add jaggery powder. The authentic recipe uses sugar but I wanted to replace sugar with jaggery.
  • Whisk well until the mix looks fluffy and light.
  •  Add in the flour mix. No need to knead like normal dough. Just gather the ingredients. 
  • Add milk 1 teaspoon at a time. We are looking for a semi soft dough - not too soft, nor too hard. If it feels dry, add more milk little by little.  DONT KNEAD; else you will get chewy cookies. But we are looking for crunchy bites. Kneading will result in gluten formation. It is gluten that gives you chewy rotis. So I am sure you do not want to be eating sweet rotis here, isn't it?
  • Preheat the oven at 180 degrees for 10 mins. I airfried the atta cookies.
  • Bake or air fry atta cookies for about 15 mins at the same temperature. 
  • When ready, do not forget to cool the atta cookies on a cooling rack. Store these baked beauties in an air-tight container once they have completely cooled.

Eggless Butterless Whole Wheat Sponge With Jaggery

A whole wheat sponge, that too, with minimum ingredients? No, I am not kidding. This baked beauty before you is the result of a successful experiment with whole grains. I am glad about the results. Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk. But I am sure the result should be the same (rather, more flavorful) with dairy-free milk. I could add plain water too, but reserved the thought for another baking session.


If you want to learn how to make almond milk or coconut milk at home, it is quite simple. I never buy these from the market; rather, prefer to make everything at home.

In fact, when I did not have a hand whisk, I would use a spoon. I do have an electric whisk, but I a…
