Wondering whether these cookies will be a kid favorite?

Sunflower Seeds Benefits

Looking for a quick snack for your evening hunger pangs?
Get a handful of sunflower seeds and munch on these crunchy nuts.
Sunflower seeds are a high source of polyunsaturated fat (23 gram in 100 grams) and monounsaturated fat (19/100gm)
They contain a good amount of iron and magnesium.
Sunflower seeds are a rich source of vitamin E (35.17mg/100 gram), potassium (645 mg/100 gram).
Vitamin E is a skin healthy friendly vitamin, which travels throughout your body to neutralize the effect of cancer-causing free radicals. These oxidizing agents can damage fat-containing structures in the body, including brain cells, cell membranes, and cholesterol.
It is thought to prevent the oxidization of cholesterol.
A good source of magnesium, sunflower seeds help people fighting neural and muscular problems.It blocks calcium's entry into the nervous system, helping keep nerves relaxed.
If your diet is deficient in magnesium, calcium can easily enter the nervous system, resulting in too many messages from the brain.
Insufficient magnesium can result in blood pressures pike, muscle and heart spasms, muscular cramps, fatigue, soreness, headache, and migraine.

How to make the best oatmeal cookie s:  No Baking Powder Recipe

Take a vessel.
Add ghee and olive oil.
Whisk both.
Next drop raw cane sugar, salt, and milk.
Whisk again until fluffy and light.
This is what will give you crunchy cookies.
Now take a sifter and sieve whole wheat and oatmeal.
Mix dry and wet ingredients with hands.
Stir in sunflower seeds. Keep a few seeds aside to top the cookies later.
Do not knead. None of my cookie recipes need to be kneaded. Kneading will create gluten in the cookie dough. Gluten gives you chewy texture. Do you want chewy cookies? Of course not, then mix the ingredients with hands and forget all about kneading.
Keep everything covered for half an hour.
You may check this video to get an idea as to how to go about making no baking powder cookies crunchy.

The ingredients would have come together as a dough after 30 mts.
Take lime-sized balls or roll out as a thick chapati.
Cut using a cookie cutter or give desired shapes.
Top each cookie with 2-3 sunflower seeds.
Airfry for 10-12 mts at 170 degrees.
If you wish to bake the oats cookies, preheat the oven (mw convection) at 170 degrees for 10 mts and bake at the same temperature for 10-12 mts.
Allow the cookies to cool down on a cooling rack.
Enjoy crunchy oats cookies with sunflower seeds.
So here goes my another contribution for oatmeal recipe collection - which gets bigger and better, of course, healthier.

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…
