Cookies healthy cookies everywhere, and so many crackers to eat! Can cookies be healthy? Somebody questioned. Why not, my mind pondered? When you eat outside junk, you never question whether this or that is healthy. Then what's the need to ask whether cookies are healthy?

Nevertheless, homemade oatmeal cookies are healthy. Even the multi-grain cookies are healthy.
Rest assured about it! At least healthier than the market cookies. Agree?

Ever wondered what goes inside those cookies that you buy outside? Yes, even the ingredient list is not clear about it. They claim having added wheat flour, but do you know wheat flour is a misnomer - it may stand for a blend of all-purpose flour and whole wheat grains.  Please check the image below for detail.




Have you started pondering over this fact now?

Since learning the basics of baking, I have been trying my hands at all sorts of healthy cookies. But in the back of my mind, I have always wanted to try my hands at quick oatmeal biscuits recipe for my diabetic mother-in-law and father-in-law.

Glad, I experimented with oat cracker recipe today and the experiment has been successful . Now I can present homemade healthy cookies to my in-laws when I meet them next.

Did I tell you these are the best oatmeal cookies I have ever had?Wondering why? Because the recipe uses healthiest of ingredients.

Oatmeal Cookie Recipe Procedure
Look at these beauties? Don't they tell you something? Yes, they tell you that they are loaded with healthy ingredients that make them a perfect diabetic friendly recipe. My parents-in law have been savoring graham crackers for over a decade. Ever since I started baking at home,  I have been curious enough to crack the recipe. I may not have been able to do so, but what I have come up with is a keeper!

You would surely want to bake another batch of quick oat biscuits because these would be gone in no time. Out of the oven and disappearing from the shelf quickly!

All right, let's get back to the procedure of this oatmeal cookie recipe.
  1. Grind Oats
  2. Roast flax seeds for 2-3 minutes. Let them cool down and grind.
  3. Grind red chilly to get flakes.
  4. Mix everything, except oil and water.
  5. Add oil and mix with dough.
  6. It will appear like bread crumbs.
  7. Add water little amount at a time. We do not want a sticky dough, but it should not be dry either.
  8. Gather the dough.
  9. Pre-heat oven for 8-10 minutes at 180 degrees.
  10. Grease a baking tray.
  11. Cut the dough into very thin sheets.
  12. I used cookie cutter to give shape.
  13. Bake for 15 minutes (depending on the thickness of your crackers - took me almost 20 mins, as my crackers were little thicker).
  14. Enjoy with a hot cup of tea.
  15. This is a perfect snack for diabetic patients as well. If you are making wheat crackers for diabetics, do not add sugar. I plan to bake these for my diabetic parents-in-law :) Since my in-laws are fond of these and have included crackers in their diabetic diet.
Feedback time on the diabetes-friendly recipe:

It's Diwali time and everyone is busy cooking sweets. Here I have come up with a healthy cookie recipe instead. Yes, of course, you need to watch your intake this festive season. After all, what goes inside, comes out! Be careful, enjoy, and do not hurt others. By the way do not forget to try this oat cracker recipe. Would love to hear back from you all!

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…

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
