Eggless Barley Cookies With Pistachio: How To Make Oatmeal Delicious Without Baking Powder


Can you imagine a cookie to be a healthy snacking option? Of course, these eggless pista cookies without baking powder or soda are a perfect treat for your loved ones. If you love cookies or not, you will surely enjoy munching on these beauties. Dad says these eggless pistachio cookies are the best he has ever had. Sans refined sugar, no white flour or maida, these pistachio golden beauties are crunchy, yummy, and of course healthy :) With a healthy blend of oats and barley flour, you can immediately bake a healthy beauty that appeals to kids and elders alike.

These eggless barley cookies take me down the memory lane, when I used to relish bakery biscuits. They tasted divine during those days, but hardly did I know how detrimental outside junk is for health. The cookie lover in me craved for Kwality Bakers biscuits (Patiala) in Delhi. I would bring packets with me whenever I would travel to Patiala. Finally, the fitness freak in me realized the poor track record of bakery stuff - maida, dalda, saturated & trans fats, and an overload of sugar - all of which tend to make you overweight, adding only empty calories, without having any nutritive value fo your body. Then was the time I started experimenting - my cookie experiments led me to making healthy cookies at home.

Today, with God's grace, I have unlocked the secret to making simple cookie recipes without baking powder or soda. I am experimenting with each flour/millet that comes my way to make sure the secret works.


oats benefits cookies
barley benefits:cookies



1 cup measures 175ml

Ingredients
3/4 cup- oats powder (powder rolled oats)
1 cup- barley flour (jau) - did you know the combo of barley and rice flour makes a great maida alternative?
4 tbsp- olive oil
1 tbsp- ghee/butter
1 tbsp- milk
Slivered pistachio
1/4 cup- raw cane sugar
pinch of salt

Procedure: How to Make Pista Cookies Without Baking Powder

Take ghee, oil in a bowl.
Add raw cane sugar or dry jaggery powder, salt and whisk well.
Add milk and whisk again until light and fluffy.
Take a sifter and sift both flours and gradually add to the wet ingredients.
Mix with hands until incorporated. PLEASE DO NOT KNEAD. JUST GATHER THE INGREDIENTS.
Add slivered nuts and keep aside for half an hour.
The flour should have absorbed moisture by then. It will be a loose dough. Do not worry. These will bake beautifully. If you wish, you can refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 170 degrees for 10 mts. I have airfried these cookies and preheated my airfyer for 4 mins.
Roll out into a thick chapati and cut shapes using a cookie cutter or pizza cutter.
Bake or airfry for 10-12 mts or little longer until the edges start to turn golden.
Allow the eggless cookies to cool down properly before enjoying these guilt-free beauties.
These are sure to appeal to your kids, elders, and the kid in you.

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…

Yes, this is the quintessential south Indian menu that has become widely popular world over for its rich taste, unique flavors, and nutritional boost!

Savor any recipe bursting with coconut flavor and you would want to have it again and again. At least, this is my experience! South Indian food has been instrumental in making me a coconut lover. Don't believe?
