Of course, you want to include fiber in your child's diet while ensuring they enjoy healthy food. This blog is all about health, with "health" written all over it. 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.

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


  • fiber-rich oatmeal

  • 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

All in all, this is deliciousness, yumminess, and health packed in a batch of  healthy cookies with oatmeal.

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.

In fact, when I did not have a hand whisk, I would use a spoon. I do have an electric whisk, but I a…
