Besan Nankhatai With Cornflakes, Oatmeal: Crunchy Bites


Nankhatai is one biscuit that you love, isn't it? I am no different either. I have sampled and savored nankhatai all through my childhood,perhaps from Kwality Bakers in Patiala - my favorite bakery in my hometown. But since I no longer buy outside stuff these days, preferring to bake and make everything at home, I have tried my hands at nankhatai on previous occasions. In fact besan nankhatai was my first attempt at baking cookies!!
besan nankhatai with cornflakes, oats
 I have come a long way now, trying out innumerable cookie combinations, for I love cookies but trying out the same with healthier ingredients. The market stuff is loaded with calories, but my healthy cookies are different.
While bakeries use dalda, I prefer to combine clarified butter with olive oil , sometimes substituting the buttery part with olive oil. I love my bakes this way, for they are healthier than market junk.


What do you prefer?
Taste or Health!

Ask me, and I would vie for health first and then taste. But of course, healthy stuff can be tasty too. This is what I always try to do.







You are already aware of it.
Anyway coming back to the besan nankhatai with cornflakes and oatmeal, I have tried a similar combination on a previous occasion. The nankhatai recipe got viral, and was loved by one and all. Perhaps it is one unique combination that you would want to try out soon. I am sure once you taste this batch of nankhatai, you will forget the traditional besan nankhati!

A recap on oats benefits:


Let's share what makes this cornflakes cookie recipe so special:


oats benefits for high cholesterol

  2. The inclusion of cornflakes enhances the taste
  3. The typical chickpea flour has to be there for flavor and the recipe has to live by its name
  4. The combination of ghee/clarified butter and olive oil makes a perfect substitute to butter
  5. A dash of lime juice is all you need for a slight twist to the recipe, though it doesn't make much difference
