Power Packed Oatmeal Digestives With Whole Wheat Flour, Almonds


healthy oatmeal digestive cookies
Who says oatmeal digestives have to be boring? I love health food and advise others to pick healthy ingredients for their meals. After all, your health is in your hands.

Make food your medicine and not medicine your food.

My previous homemade oatmeal digestives post was loved by one and all. This time I have decided to add nuts to digestives. Well, I have added almonds, which are the healthiest of nuts and a good source of minerals, nutrients, fiber, and vitamins.  We have been enjoying almonds since childhood. My dad has always advised us to soak almonds overnight and have them in the morning. He says almonds are good for your brain. Rightly so!!

Almonds Benefits
Not only this, almonds help regulate blood pressure, lower LDL or bad cholesterol, raise good cholesterol or HDL, reduce heart disease risk, boost cardio health, prevent from colon cancer, play a role in diabetes management, are great for hair and skin, and boost immune health.

So many benefits in these cute little nuts!! Seeing almond benefits, it won't be wrong to say that almonds are a kind of super food - a power-packed snack, which is a health boost.

Benefits of Oats

Oats are a rich source of fiber, antioxidants, complex carbs, magnesium. These are a low calorie food that slows digestion, improves metabolism, and helps in weight loss.

The antioxidants in oats are beneficial for various heart ailments. Being a rich source of dietary fiber, oats help lower bad cholesterol (LDL) without affecting HDL or good cholesterol. Additionally, oats contain plant lignans, such as enterolactone, which are known to protect against cardiovascular disease. All in all, oats help reduce cholesterol levels and keep your heart healthy. Oats benefits are aplenty. Make a health-friendly decision today to include oats in your daily diet.

    1. You may replace cornflakes with Horlicks/ Bournvita or even besan or nothing at all. Cornflakes acts like a taste enhancer here- nothing else. Well, no doubt, these digestives are soft, but babies may still struggle to chew them.

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.

Ever since my airfryer homecoming, I have always chosen to go for airfryer cookies, and not touched my convection ever since. That's the beauty of airfryer baking.

Okay, so let's come back to the badam cookie recipe. Did I say this is a no raising agent cookie recipe?
