Weight loss cookies

One batch of this weight loss digestives would disappear soon unless you can control your instincts!

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- homemade golden syrup with jaggery powder --check the recipe to make golden syrup at home here
2 tbsp-jaggery powder (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 jaggery 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 golden syrup.
  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 airfryer to 170 degrees for 5 minutes. If you are baking weight loss digestives in an oven (mw convection), then preheat for 10 mts at 170 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 or airfry in a preheated oven for 14-16 minutes at 170 degrees. Check if the digestives for weight loss have turned golden around the edges. If so, stop airfrying/baking. 
  15. Let digestives cool down completely before munching on or storing these beauties.
  16. Enjoy healthy cookies with a hot cup of tea. Any takers here?
  17. You can certainly bake a fresh batch as a Diwali gift for someone special.
  18. These are the healthiest digestives you would want to bake for your family. Do give these a try.
  19. Here's a link to healthy oatmeal cookies no sugar recipe. I call this batch of cookies Mcvities digestives.

  9. Hi Ravneet i am a big fan of all your healthy recipes. Tried a few also but this particular cookies dough came out a little hard even after adding the butter (instead of hung curd) the way u said, what could be the reason?
    Tastewise the cookies turned out very good. Please suggest what could be the reason.
    And one more thing are we suppose to keep the dough in fridge for 30 mins or on the kitchen counter?

    1. Thank you for such kind words dear. Well, since we are adding b.soda here, you need to refrigerate the dough. If the dough turns out hard, you can add 1-2 tbsp of milk here or reduce the amount of flour. Some flours tend to absorb more moisture, so this could be the reason for your dough turning out hard. Since you are adding baking soda here, feel free to increase the amount of milk to avoid making a hard dough. Else, you can omit honey and use homemade golden syrup instead. Here's the recipe https://youtu.be/HKvmxo_idqg

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
