No Oil, Butterless Whole Wheat Cookies

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.

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? You might be wondering whether there is something like eggless baking without baking powder or soda. Well, this was exactly what I had been thinking until I tried this eggless cake without baking powder today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me. If baking without baking powder interests you, then you will be a permanent visitor here, for we think, live, and eat healthy and primarily focus on baking without baking powder or soda.


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.

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

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.


Here are the recipes to make almond milk at home.
