Did you know that red lentils are a powerhouse of proteins that are slowly absorbed in the body? Slow absorption means a slow release of glucose. This gives you more reasons to choose red lentils for your everyday meal plans, including for diabetics who are always looking for low calorie, low carb foods with a low glycemic index.
Nutritious and packed with fiber, red lentils are a nutritional powerhouse that helps improve your health and meet your weight loss goals.
Not only this, red lentils are a magic ingredient for your skin. try including lal masur dal in your skincare regimen for that everlasting glow.
While moong dal is a common baking ingredient, have you tried baking with red lentils? I did and the cookies are amazingly delicious.
A mix of red lentils and oats combines to make these nutritious cookies sweetened with raw cane sugar.

Why Go With Red Lentil Powder?

If you remember my moong dal cookies, which were just a melt in the mouth lentil cookies, you will want to try out this batch of healthy biscuits too. One advantage of making these airfryer cookies is that these use :

  • no raising agent - so no baking powder/ no baking soda
  • no white sugar- replace it with mineral-rich raw cane sugar or even jaggery powder
  • no white butter - though I have used 1 tbsp of desi ghee or clarified butter and blended it with olive oil
  • oatmeal to enhance the fiber ratio for this batch of lentil cookies
  • with gluten-free oats and a mix of red lentil, we can bake a batch of gluten-free cookies at home in a jiffy


Red lentil benefits

A powerhouse of protein, red lentils red lentils are seeds from legume plants that are cooked in an instant, providing an important protein source. Calorie rich, nutritious, and packed with fiber, red lentils are a nutritional powerhouse that help improve your health and meet your weight loss goals.
On top of it, red lentils are known to slow down the absorption of carbs in the body, which means these are a healthy alternative to glutenated flours that cause digestive problems. This ensures slow release of blood glucose, thus preventing blood sugar spikes that could be very dangerous for those with diabetes.

Red lentils have a low glycemic index, which means they have a low blood sugar release.This helps improve energy utilization and efficiency in the body.

Additionally, they are a good source of dietary fiber,  which creates a feeling of fullness, so you are less likely to indulge in foodie goodness. Less food intake means low calorie.
They are a rich source of amino acids and micronutrients, which make them a perfect food for muscle repair and growth.

Lentils are packed with magnesium, which helps lower blood pressure while relaxing cardio muscles. Since lentils are a good source of B vitamins, they supply your body with a good dose of folic acid, which helps in the formation of red blood cells.

When you eat less but get all the nutrients from food, you can easily meet your weight management goals.

Oatmeal Cookie Ingredients

3/4 cup- red lentil flour (I dry roasted the lentil on a hot skillet and then powdered it)- the powder measures 3/4 cup -- check the video below to make your own red lentil powder and face pack
2/3 cup- oatmeal (powdered oats) - you may add 1-2 tbsp more if the dough feels too sticky
3 tbsp- olive oil/saffola/any vegetable/seed oil
1 tbsp- ghee/butter
3 tbsp- raw cane sugar (or dry jaggery powder) - add more as per your sweet preference..I take it less sweet
1 tbsp- milk
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp- dehydrated milk powder (adds yumminess to the lentil cookie) - I added this in my second batch--the first batch was baked without it

No Baking Powder Cookies Procedure: How to Make Oatmeal Delicious


Please check the video above for reference. It will be a better guide as to how to prepare cookies without baking powder or baking soda.


  • Whisk ghee, oil, milk, and raw cane sugar together until light and fluffy.
  • Add dehydrated milk powder if you wish to use here. Mix well. If you're not using, go to the next step.
  • Sift red lentil flour and oatmeal and mix both wet and dry ingredients with hands.
  • No need to knead the dough.
  • Just bring them together. Keep covered at room temperature.
  • Allow the flours to absorb the moisture for 20-30 minutes.
  • Roll out into a thick chapati or lime sized balls - make cookie shapes.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 170 degrees for 10 mins or little more if these look unbaked. These red lentil cookies should be done quite quickly. So keep an eye on your gluten free cookies when they are in the oven. You could turn these into airfryer cookies as well. I airfried this batch at 170 degrees for 8-10 mins.
  • Allow the red lentil cookies with oatmeal on a cooling rack. This will allow your gluten free cookies to become crisp and harden.
  • You can then munch on these baked goodies as a tea time accompaniment.
  • Do write to me about your experience with these red lentil cookies. 
This is how the second batch of red lentil cookies with milk powder looks. It tastes even yummier and crunchier .
