Eggless Whole Wheat Oatmeal Cookies/Jeera Biscuits (No Maida)


jeera biscuits
Healthy cookies are my weakness. What about you?

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.

whole wheat oatmeal cookies without raisins
I am extremely happy with the results I have got with this new batch of healthy whole wheat cookie recipe with oatmeal, since this may be the secret I have been looking for so long!!

Let's see if I can reach my goal of baking biscuits Marie style.

Fingers crossed. But I am not one to give up!

I do not prefer using maida for my cookies, not for any other recipe either. In fact, maida or white flour does not find a place in my home. Reasons galore -all related to health.
Without, further ado, let's get back to the healthy oatmeal cookies  with wheat flour. The combination may come as a surprise for you, but it does give me the healthiest bakes I have ever had. Yes, I can boast about it. Yay!



Ingredients of Eggless Whole Wheat Oatmeal Cookies
1cup measures 175ml

1/2 cup- whole wheat flour
1/2 cup- oatmeal  (or add whole wheat instead)
1/4-1/2 cup- curd (more or less depending on the dough - we do not need a soft dough like chapati, but it should not be too hard..it should be like pizza dough)
1 tsp- oil/ghee (I added 1 tsp, but you can add up to 2 tsp)
salt, sugar(depends on your taste buds.. ---1/4 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp sugar..)
1/2 tsp- baking powder
1/2 tsp- baking soda
Jeera, Red chilly powder

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:
  1. Sieve wheat flour, oatmeal, baking soda, and baking powder.
  2. Mix sugar and salt.
  3. Throw in jeera, red chilly powder.
  4. Add oil.
  5. Rub with hands. Does the flour give you an anxious bread crumb like look?
  6. Next add 1/4 cup curd. We want to collect the ingredients.
  7. Now add little more curd if the dough feels dry.
  8. It should not be sticky. It should be neither too soft nor too tight.
  9. Let the dough sit covered on the counter for 30 mts.
  10. Roll out like a chapati. Cut shapes and make holes with a fork.
  11. Preheat oven for 10 mts at 180 degrees.
  12. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 15 minutes.
  13. Enjoy healthy oatmeal cookies with wheat flour or jeera biscuits, as I fondly call them. I can flaunt my recipe, since I have been eagerly looking for something like this for a long time. Happy me!
  14. Here is my take on savory besan crackers. Try them once and you will make these again and again.

    1. Hello, well, you may use milk powder instead..though sugar was added to balance the saltiness...this was a pizza base that was turned into crackers...you may skip sugar completely or add milk powder...should not make too much of a difference.

    1. Well, this should be double that of a chapati (1/4 inch should be perfect) for all cookies.

Sugarless Besan Ladoo : A Healthy Chickpea Gluten Free Recipe

besan ladoo Is chickpea gluten free? This is one of the most common question asked by few besan lovers. I have always been fond of besan (gram flour) ladoos. But hubby doesn't find them interesting enough to relish them. Yes, I am not joking. He loves boondi ladoos. So I have never tried making besan ladoos before. This Diwali, I wanted to give my favorite ladoos a try. But yes, the health freak in me questioned whether I was really prepared to give in my health goals to relish my favorite besan ladoos. Then the thought of giving a twist to these ladoos struck my imagination. The rest is history - the besan ladoos use just 1 tbsp of ghee (clarified butter) with no SUGAR. Yes, I have given myself the freedom to substitute sugar with dates in this recipe as well. Dates lend subtle sweetness to the recipe! So you can enjoy the delicacy guilt free! To my surprise, when I offered hubby to taste them, he said "these are really good." Need I ask for more? But
