Multigrain BourBon Biscuits: A Kid-Friendly Simple Cookie Recipe


Chocolate cookies on your mind?What about Bourbon biscuits? Well, I am no longer a chocolate lover that I once was. Nevertheless, I have been waiting to try out these chocolate cookies for some time. Now the time was ripe enough for me to give these baked beauties a try. I had a visit scheduled to my mom's place, and my nephew and niece are chocolate lovers, just like all little kiddos.

So could there be a better time to bake multigrain or whole wheat bourbon biscuits? I wanted to make it healthier with whole wheat and oatmeal. This gives you an easy oatmeal recipe to try out.

You may want to add a natural flavoring agent to make the eggless whole wheat cookies more kid-friendly. I did not add anything and felt that the aroma of ghee was a little overpowering for the little ones. Nevertheless, my 1 and a half-year-old Paro loved munching on the homemade chocolate cookies with whole wheat flour. I am yet to deliver the second batch to my nephew Sherry. Keeping fingers crossed!

A little about Bourbon Biscuits

The sandwich type chocolate cookies ideally consist of thin rectangular layers, one topped with another using a chocolate buttercream filling.

I have made these Bourbon biscuits without filling. But if you are interested, go ahead with whipping up 2 tbsp butter with 2 tsp cocoa powder and 1 tbsp sugar powder (more as per taste preferences). Whisk the filling well until incorporated and then layer it inside the biscuits one atop another.

ServingsPrep Time
40 biscuits30 minutes
Cook Time
15 minutes

Ingredients
1 cup measures 240 ml

1/2 cup-whole wheat flour
1/4 cup- oatmeal/powdered oats (or substitute with whole wheat)
1/4 cup- cocoa powder
1/2 cup- raw cane sugar/jaggery powder (I have used jaggery)- add more for a sweeter version--I take it less sweet
2 pinches of black salt
3 tbsp- ghee/butter (refrigerate or chill for 30 mts before use)
5 tbsp- milk for binding the dough
2 tbsp- dehydrated skimmed milk powder (sugarfree - I get it from Patanjali)
1/2 cup- barley flour (jau)
1 tbsp- whole wheat bran
1 tbsp- ragi flour
1/2 tsp- baking soda
2 tbsp- olive oil (or any other seed oil - sunflower/rice bran/sesame- if you can tolerate its scent)

How to make Whole Wheat Bourbon biscuits at home

multigrain bourbon flour mix
  1. Use a sieve to sift the flours, bran, milk powder along with baking soda 4-5 times.
  2. Drop in jaggery powder. Run in a mixer or processor so that there are no solid grits in the flour. This will help to refine the jaggery powder and ensure it is well combined with the flour. Pack this multigrain flour mix in a ziplock and refrigerate. The next time you want to make a quick Bourbon batch, run the flour in the mixer/processor once again and get to the next step. It's as simple as that.

  3. Add solid ghee and oil to the flour. You may either run it in a mixer along with flour or do so with hands. I chose to rub this with hands.
  4. DO NOT KNEAD.
  5. Add milk 1 tbsp at a time to collect the dough. I needed at least 5 tbsp of milk to bind the ingredients into a semi-soft dough.
  6. Pack in a parchment paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes. I put the dough in a steel container and covered with a lid and placed it in the fridge.
  7. After 30 mts, preheat the oven or microwave convection for 10 mts at 170 degrees. I have chosen to go with my airfryer and preheated it for 5 mts.
  8. Roll out into a slightly thick chapati and cut into vertical bars. Use a fork for making incisions in the whole wheat bourbon biscuits.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes in a preheated oven/airfryer at 170 degrees.
  10. Take out on a cooling rack and allow the chocolate cookies to cool down before sharing the eggless beauties with your little munchkins.

Your multigrain bourbon biscuits are ready for munching.

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…
