Eggless Barley Cookies Without Baking Powder, Soda [Healthy Biscuits Recipe Indian in AIRFRYER |Simple Oatmeal Cookies ]


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
1 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 simple oatmeal Cookies Without Baking Powder [indian recipe airfryer]

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.


My modification of this recipe is as follows:

barley oatmeal cookies without baking powder soda

1/2 cup- barley
1/2 cup- jowar (sorghm)
1/4 cup- oatmeal

2 tbsp- extra virgin olive oil

1/4-/2 cup- jaggery powde/raw cane sugar
nuts of choice
1/4 cup-almond meal


Whisk together butter, oil, and jaggery powder until light and fluffy. Please check the video above to check tips to work with a batter that looks runny and does not cream. The tip works like magic.
Add saffron milk - 1 tbsp at a time..whisk and then add 1/2 tbsp more and whisk again for a few seconds.
It's time to sift flours one by one and in batches.
Sift one batch, mix with a spatula and sift again. Follow the same process.
Add almond meal at the end. Mix and prepare the dough into a log.
Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat kadahi for 10 minutes on high flame. Check the video for tips.
Preheat oven/otg/airfryer for 10 mnutes to 160degrees.
Remove the cookie dough from the fridge. Cut into shapes of choice.
Insert slivered nuts into each cookie. Brush with saffron milk.
Bake/airfry for 18-20 minutes (depending on your oven/otg) at 160 degrees. The first batch may take longer.
Bake in a kadahi - place the baking pan on top of a cooker stand that sits over a layer of salt. Check the video. Bake on a low-medium flame for 12-18 minutes.
Check after 15 minutes f the bottom of the cookies have browned. If yes, flip the cookies and cover with a cloth. Turn off the flame. Let the cookies sit like this for 30 minutes.
Remove from the heating source and place on a cooling rack.
Enjoy crunchy cookies upon cooling.

But hubby doesn't find them interesting enough to relish them. Yes, I am not joking. He loves boondi ladoos. So I have never tried making besan ladoos before. This Diwali, I wanted to give my favorite ladoos a try. But yes, the health freak in me questioned whether I was really prepared to give in my health goals to relish my favorite besan ladoos.
