I am a cookie lover. But I love biscuits as well. Now you must be wondering whether there is any difference between both. Well, to me cookies are the goodies we get in bakeries - these are little heavier than biscuits, which are light and flaky.
After having tried my hands at different combinations to make homemade whole wheat cookies, I have been curious enough to look for a biscuit recipe. Today, I was experimenting with homemade wheat-oatmeal for pizza base. I used little dough for pizza and thought of keeping the remaining dough overnight to bake a bread the next day.
But God had different plans. The pizza base I was able to bake was crunchy and of course, healthy. So I decided to try baking healthy oatmeal cookies no sugar puffs with the remaining dough. Sorry I was not able to click the pizza. But I do have a no maida, yeast free pizza recipe. Do give it a try.

Jeera Biscuits Procedure
As you can see, this healthy oatmeal cookies with wheat recipe is a keeper. Try it any time at home, since it does not require any fancy ingredients. All ingredients used are easily available on your kitchen counter.
So let's proceed with the procedure to make healthy cookies my style:
- Sieve wheat flour, oatmeal, baking soda, and baking powder.
- Mix sugar and salt.
- Throw in jeera, red chilly powder.
- Add oil.
- Rub with hands. Does the flour give you an anxious bread crumb like look?
- Next add 1/4 cup curd. We want to collect the ingredients.
- Now add little more curd if the dough feels dry.
- It should not be sticky. It should be neither too soft nor too tight.
- Let the dough sit covered on the counter for 30 mts.
- Roll out like a chapati. Cut shapes and make holes with a fork.
- Preheat oven for 10 mts at 180 degrees.
