Oatmeal Cookies Eggless With Chickpea Gluten Free Flour


besan oatmeal cookies

Oats seem to have become an integral part of my cooking. I can't think of recipes without including this healthy grain - which is the healthiest of all! Earlier, my impression of oats was something bland, tasteless and boring. I never wanted to include it in my meals. But the story has changed now, especially ever since my food experiments begun and I realized the importance of this fibrous grain.

By now you already know that I am a cookie lover and keep experimenting with different flour combinations to bake healthy, tasty cookies. I have already tried this combination before - but this time I included pistachio along with almonds. The besan oats cookies are the best I have ever had!

This is one easy oatmeal cookie recipe that you can try on stovetop. Yes, absolutely. However, if you wish to try it in oven, go for it
Some of my friends were surprised with the gram flour-oatmeal combination, but trust me you get the tastiest, crunchiest, and healthy oatmeal cookies you have ever had.

If you are in love with old fashioned cookies, then you have got to try this recipe – the unique combination of gluten-free chickpea flour and oatmeal makes this batch healthy and delicious.
Next I am gonna try oatmeal raisin cookies, for I am wondering how the combination would work. I think these would be chewy cookies with a sweet, savory flavor. Isnt it? Worry not, the next time, I try this recipe would love to share it with you all.


Homemade oatmeal cookies without brown sugar are certainly a hit in my family. In fact, this batch was made for my family in Patiala, and every one loved the distinctive taste of these cookies.

Procedure

gram flour oatmeal cookies eggless


  1. Preheat oven (mw convection) at 180 degrees for 10 mts.
  2. Sieve besan, oatmeal and baking powder 2-3 times so that baking powder mixes evenly with the flour.
  3. In a bowl or food processor/grinder, add sugar, oil, ghee, and elaichi. Mix very well so that the mixture gets airy and fluffy
  4. Chop pista and almonds and spread them over a plate. Now drop the wet mixture over these.
  5. Next add the flour mixture with the wet ingredients.
  6. Gather the ingredients. Do not knead.
  7. If the dough feels dry, add milk. If you feel it's still dry, add one more tbsp of milk.
  8. We do not want sticky dough. It should be wet enough to bind easily.
  9. Make small lemon sized balls with the dough.
  10. Grease a baking tray and place the flattened balls over it.
  11. Make sure each cookie is placed at a distance from the other. Otherwise they will not bake properly.
  12. Bake at 180 degrees for 12-14 mts. Enjoy this healthy batch of flavorful besan oatmeal cookies with a hot cup of tea.
  13. These crispy besan cookies are just perfect for any occasion - remind me of besan ladoo :)

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.
