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.

What is so special about this oatmeal cookie recipe without butter?
Well, this Horlicks biscuit recipe uses:


  • fiber-rich oatmeal
  • nutrient-rich whole wheat flour
  • antioxidant-rich olive oil
  • power-packed nuts
  • chocolatty flavor from Powervita (of course, you may substitute the same with horlicks or bournvita)
  • no butter (for kid-friendly recipe, you may include 1 tbsp of butter as well, as growing children still need a serving of the same)
  • no sugar, substituting it with jaggery
