When your dad says, these eggless cookies could sell for 500 bucks per pack, you need no other explanation for this batch of cashew cookies.

Then your brother tastes these melt-in-mouth beauties and suggests, "why do not you start your cookie business as well"?


Need I say more about these fiber-rich whole wheat cashew cookies?
Recently, I was in Patiala - my mayka - I tried 4-5 varieties of cookies there. Dad says this time the cookies were the best.

I even tried semolina lemon cake, which was loved by one and all. My dad continues to extol my efforts.

Let's talk a little bit about these eggless cashew cookies with oatmeal.


I do not bring cashews home, as munching on these delicious dry fruits may raise cholesterol levels in your body. If you are already suffering from cholesterol management issues, then I would suggest that you replace cashew with healthier nuts, for example, almonds and pistachios. You may even add toasted sesame seeds.

Another added advantage of this batch of eggless cookies is that you do not need any raising agent to turn these baked goodies soft and melt in mouth. The fat content will take care of the softness and crispness.

But then there is a trick to make soft simple cookies without raising agents. I am sharing the tips in the recipe below. Leverage these tips to make healthy cashew cookies without raising agent.

So let's see how to prepare cookies without baking powder or baking soda.

Before that, let's see why you should substitute white flour with whole grains.

Atta Cookies for Kids Ingredients

airfryer cookies with whole wheat

11/2 cup- powdered oats (grind rolled/regular oats to powder)
1/2 cup- whole wheat flour
1/2 cup- sugar (more or less depending on your taste)
1/2 cup- ghee/clarified butter
2-3 tbsp- milk or 2 tbsp more if the dough looks dry or is difficult to bind
elaichi powder or fennel seeds for flavor
chopped cashew nuts - you may add pistachio and almonds as well
almond pista powder (optional)-1/4 cup
roasted flax seeds

How to make oatmeal delicious: Whole Wheat Cashew Cookies Eggless

  1. Whisk ghee and sugar powder until the mix looks light and fluffy.
  2. Add cardamom powder or fennel seeds.
  3. Sieve both flours 5-8 times. This is important to aerate the flours.
  4. Add powdered nuts and roastedflax seeds
  5. Sieve again.
  6. Now add dry ingredients to the wet mix.
  7. Mix with hands. Do not knead. Kneading will result in gluten formation, which will make cookies chewy. But we want crunchy biscuits. So just mix everything with hands, without kneading.
  8. Add milk - 1tbsp at a time until the dough comes together as a ball.
  9. We need a soft dough. Now drop in chopped cashew nuts. Roll into a log or ball.
  10. Wrap the dough ball in an aluminum foil/parchment paper.
  11. Refrigerate for 30 mts.
  12. Take out the dough and preheat oven/microwave convection for 10 mts at 180 degrees.
  13. I made these eggless cookies in an airfryer.
  14. The dough may feel hard to roll out initially. Keep it for 10 mts on the counter.
  15. Roll out like a thick chapati using a rolling pin. Make desired shapes. Do not forget to make insertions using a fork. This will allow deeper and even heating/baking/airfrying.
  16. Bake/or airfry the cashew cookies at 180 degrees for 15-20 mts.
  17. Allow the eggless cookies to cool down completely before munching on these bakes beauties.
  18. The yummy cashew cookies are ready to be dunked in a hot cup of tea or glass of milk.
  19. Of course, you may have these eggless bakes just like that.

    1. Well, try to follow the same process as mentioned. You may need to bake these from both sides on tawa. Bake one side for 5-6 mts and then flip the cookies one by one and again bake the other side for 6-8 minutes on low-medium flame.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


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. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. 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 replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
