How To Make Whole Grain Cookies With Ragi, Oatmeal, Moong Dal

You are looking for a ragi cookie recipe, isn't it? Perhaps you love healthy bakes. Why not, what you get outside is simply junk, loaded with unhealthy ingredients - say maida/white flour, dalda, and refined sugar. If this isn't enough, the market junk is rich in trans fats. You can only expect to have high triglycerides and bad cholesterol if you continue to munch on market cookies.

You can't think of healthy stuff outside. This is my experience. One packet of ready-to-eat poha has made me suffer for the past 2 years that I have stopped buying every ready-made food item.

This has inspired me to make everything at home. My love for cookies has only added fuel to the fire to cook healthy food.

Let's come back to the ragi cookie recipe.
I have included roasted moong dal for flavor. You may skip it altogether.
But it's a great idea to include lentils in your bakes to make your baking marvels wholesome - with fiber, proteins, and carbs.

Why Ragi/finger millet?

It is rich in
proteins,
fiber,
minerals
antioxidants
Not only this, ragi lowers blood sugar levels, with a low glycemic index. It reduces concentrations of triglycerides and cholesterol.

So now you know the reason why I have added ragi and whole grains for this cookie recipe?

After all, you need a balanced meal - so why not try making whole grain cookies?

Eggless Cake Baking Without Baking Powder, Soda: Whole Grain Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? You might be wondering whether there is something like eggless baking without baking powder or soda. Well, this was exactly what I had been thinking until I tried this eggless cake without baking powder today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me. If baking without baking powder interests you, then you will be a permanent visitor here, for we think, live, and eat healthy and primarily focus on baking without baking powder or soda.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda.

So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively rep…

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.
