Certainly, you will find many simple recipes with oatmeal and whole grains that make a delightful feast. Trust me or try those simple cookie recipes yourself. Of course, this blog isn't all about cookies - but you'll certainly find over 60 oatmeal cookie recipes without butter here. Surprised, are you?

Well, we wish to take you on a healthy journey where health reigns supreme and there is a panacea for all ills. I wish so!

Coming back from my world of fantasy to this simple cookie recipe - this is my take on the newly introduced bournvita biscuits. Perhaps this can be a healthy substitute to Horlicks biscuits that you have savored until now.

I have replaced bournvita or horlicks with Powervita from Patanjali. It tastes similar to Bournvita.

Well, this Horlicks biscuit recipe uses:

  • no sugar, substituting it with jaggery
