Ingredients
1/2 cup- whole wheat flour
1 cup- oatmeal flour
4 tsp- olive oil (I like extra virgin olive oil - if you do not, you may replace with butter or clarified butter/ghee)
3 tsp- hung curd/Greek Yogurt (here is an easy way to make hung curd at home..no cloth needed) - you may replace with butter if you do not have hung curd
2 tsp- honey (you may replace honey with sugar or jaggery powder if you so wish to)
2 tbsp-sugar (more or less)
1/2 tsp- baking soda
Roasted sesame seeds (til)






Procedure
whole wheat oatmeal cookies with honey


  1. 1. Sieve both flours along with baking soda.
  2. Throw in sesame seeds and sugar powder. Mix very well.
  3. Next add olive oil or any other vegetable oil. I am including oil, but you may add cold desi ghee if you so wish. 
  4. Now add hung curd and then mix honey.
  5. Are you able to collect all the ingredients into a ball?
  6. If not, add 1 tsp more of hung curd. 
  7. We want a smooth ball- not too soft, nor too hard. Please do not knead like roti atta.
  8. Keep aside wrapped in a cling film/parchment paper/ aluminum foil for 30 minutes.
  9. Roll out into a chapati-like dough, but it should be little thicker than chapati.
  10. Take a small bangle and cut into round shapes.
  11. Now take a knife and make vertical and horizontal lines on each cookie.
  12. Meanwhile, preheat the oven (mw convection) for 10 mts at 180 degrees.
  13. Place cookies on a greased baking tray at an even distance from each other - should not be cluttered. There should be some gap between each cookie.
  14. Bake in a preheated oven for 14 minutes at 170 degrees.
  15. Enjoy healthy cookies with a hot cup of tea. Any takers here?
  16. You can certainly bake a fresh batch as a Diwali gift for someone special.

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.
