The Best Horlicks Biscuits Recipe With Oatmeal: Eggless Crunchy Bites in Airfryer, No Baking Powder


How about munching on crunchy flavorful bites? Think about Horlicks and your mind cannot go beyond the Horlicks milkshake. But this was a few years back until Horlicks biscuits were introduced. These crunchy cookies with Horlicks flavor became widely popular with tiny tots. Although I was not a toddler then, I fell for these flavorful bites too. Of course, you know me by now - I am a cookie lover. But then the health bug bit me and  I started quitting anything and everything suspicious. Then was the turn of the baking monster, which got me into baking cookies every now and then to satiate my cookie cravings. This was the time my experiments with wholegrain baking began. Yes, I no longer need to travel to Patiala's Kwality Bakers to get my favorite biscuits, for I can bake everything at home. Happy me!

But if you love Horlicks biscuits, then these power-packed cookies are a must try. Believe you me, this simple cookie recipe will take you by storm and draw you toward baking healthy biscuits at home.

What's So Special About Horlicks Cookies

eggless horlicks biscuits

Easy eggless Horlicks biscuits are special because they use:


  • fiber-rich oatmeal
  • iron, calcium-rich ragi (finger millet)
  • mineral-rich jaggery as a white sugar substitute
  • half and half of the ghee-olive oil mix, so you can have the best of both worlds
  • chocolaty Horlicks flavor
  • protein-rich almond flour

  • These are healthy with the goodness of almonds, ragi, oats
  • These are a favorite with kids and elders alike

Baking With Horlicks: Recipes Using Malt Powder

So if you are wondering about the recipes using Horlicks, you will find 3 here;

  • Horlicks cookies or nankhatai with whole wheat
  • Horlicks flavored energy bars with oatmeal
  • Horlicks biscuits with ragi, almonds, and oats
  • Horlicks kulfi or ice cream will be next
  • I do plan to come up with a range of recipes with Horlicks
Now you might be wondering if baking with Horlicks is a challenge. Well, of course, not! My two recipes using Horlicks are cookie recipes. I have used airfryer for cookies on both occasions. You might choose to bake in microwave convection or oven. These cookies can be tried on stovetop as well. The options are galore.

So what are you waiting for? Let's get started with this easy Horlicks biscuits recipe without further ado:

Ingredients for Horlicks cookies

3/4 cup- oatmeal/powdered oats/ground oats
1/4 cup- almond powder
3 tbsp- Horlicks powder (you may use homemade horlicks powder too...here's the recipe to make horlicks at home)
2 heaped tbsp- ghee/clarified butter (vegan recipe may use coconut oil instead)
2 tbsp- olive oil/or any flavorless oil
1/4 cup- dry jaggery powder or more for a sweeter taste
1 pinch- salt
1 heaped tbsp- wheat bran (optional)
1 tbsp- milk (almond/coconut milk for a vegan cookie recipe)
3 tsp- Ragi/finger millet flour (or whole wheat)

How to make Horlicks biscuits sugarfree: Baking With Horlicks/Malt Powder

  • Whisk ghee, oil until well combined.
  • Add jaggery powder and salt. Whisk again. Add milk and it's time to whisk for the final time until light and fluffy. This step is very important to baking crispy, crunchy cookies with Horlicks.
  • Next, take a strainer and sift through the remaining dry ingredients.
  • Start mixing everything with hands.
  • Combine the ingredients into dough. DO NOT KNEAD. We are not adding any raising agent here, so kneading will result in gluten formation. Gluten gives chewy texture to cookies. Do you want your cookies to be chewy? Of course not! So why would you want to knead the dough here? We are not trying to make chapatis!
  • Make a log and wrap in a cling film or aluminum foil or airtight container and refirgerate for 30minutes.
  • After half an hour, preheat oven (mw convection) at 170degrees for 10 mins. I airfried the cookies, so preheat the airfryer for 3 mins.
  • Take out the log from the refirgerator. Roll out into a thick roti using rolling pin. Cut into desired shapes.
  • Bake/airfry for 8-10 mins at 170 degrees. Oven setting vary, so you may need a couple of minutes extra to bake these chocolaty beauties.
  • Allow the eggless Horlicks biscuits to cool down before munching on crunchy bites. Do not try to touch the cookies when they are still hot, as they might crumble. The Horlicks cookies need time to tighten up and become crunchy. They will be ready in half an hour. So patience is advised.
  • This is one of my favorite cookie batches now - packed with fiber, minerals, proteins, and energy bites! So when are you trying out this simple cookie recipe? It's time to surprise your tiny tots with a healthylicious cookie recipe that tastes divine and oh so chocolatty!

Refined Sugar-Free Quinoa Digestives: Fiber Rich, Nutrient Dense, Sugarless Quinoa Recipe

Have you heard of quinoa digestives? I did an Internet search to find it out, but couldn't trace any quinoa digestives recipe. Perhaps we have yet not moved to supergrains when it comes to digestives. When it comes to digestives, most of us can't think beyond whole wheat flour and oats. Perhaps dgestives require fiber-rich oats because it gives the biscuit the perfect digestives structure. I love oats so much so that I have compiled a collection of over 200 oats recipes. Now coming to quinoa digestives recipe, I have tried out too many digestives, including amaranth digestives, pistachio digestives, Mcvities digestives, and Nutri choice-like digestives. This time I wanted to skip whole wheat and include quinoa. Yes, if you remember, I have already shared a few quinoa recipes here, including quinoa nankhatais without baking soda/baking powder.

What I did next was exactly this!
My goal with each recipe is to get the better out of me!  Quinoa substitutes whole wheat
Yes, my dear…

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.

Ever since my airfryer homecoming, I have always chosen to go for airfryer cookies, and not touched my convection ever since. That's the beauty of airfryer baking.

Okay, so let's come back to the badam cookie recipe. Did I say this is a no raising agent cookie recipe?
