No oil, butterless cookies with whole wheat for dieters

The secret to this simple cookie recipe lies in its beauty. Unravel a unique cookie-cracker recipe and indulge in these baked goodies guilt free, for these use not a single drop of oil or butter.

Did I say these are yummy and healthy if you are on diet?

This batch of whole wheat cookies butterless are unlike typical biscuits but these are certainly good to go for those willing to indulge in oil-free, guilt-free cookies.
This almond cookies recipe is for those who want to avoid the use of butter/ghee/oil or limit the quantity of fat. I did not add a drop of oil to the recipe, so they turned out hard. So I suggest adding little ghee/malai to the recipe to make your cookies soft from inside and crispy from outside.
These cookies taste awesome with the fennel aroma and goodness of almond milk. Despite their hardness, my hubby, who rarely eats cookies, loved them.

I didn't add baking powder, but have included it in the recipe for anyone that wishes to try. This may help make your cookies softer :)


Ingredients for Eggless Butterless Cookies with Whole Wheat: 

3/4 cup regular wheat flour
1/2 cup almond meal (I make it at home)
Sugar (depends on taste)
a pinch salt 
1 tsp baking powder or baking soda if you want it more like crackers
3/4 tsp dry roasted fennel seeds (you can add more or less depending on flavor preference)
1/2 cup almond milk (home made)

How to make simple cookies with whole wheat:

Let's make almond meal first.
Soak 1/2 cup almond in hot water for 5-8 minutes.
It will make it easier to remove their skin.
Then dry the almonds on burner in a kadhai. No need to add any oil. When almonds have dried, let them cool down.
Then you can grind them into dry powder. This way you will get almond meal.
Here's a video on how to make almond meal to make your task easier



  • Then take 1/4 cup of almond meal and add less than 1/4 cup of water to it. Grind almond meal and water. 
  • This way you will get almond milk. I added saunf (fennel seeds) and sugar along with almond meal.
  •  If you want to use butter/ghee, you can reduce the quantity of almond milk and add butter when grinding almond meal with water.
This will ensure that everything mixes well. Keep aside.
Take wheat flour. Add salt. Now add almond meal. Add almond milk little by little and make a soft dough.
Bake at 180 degrees for 15 minutes. It may take longer, so just keep watching closely.
Then once baked, take out the cookies on a stand and let them cool. Enjoy with a cup of hot tea.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


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 decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Yes, this is the quintessential south Indian menu that has become widely popular world over for its rich taste, unique flavors, and nutritional boost! Well, this is exactly what inspires most of us north Indians to cook south Indian food. I  must admit I love Chettinad cuisine, Malayali food, and of course, Tamil recipes.
