Ingredients: What Goes Into Diet Cookies for Weight Loss

1 cup- oatmeal (1 cup= 175 ml)
½ cup- whole wheat flour
4 spoons (I used regular spoons here)- oil (I have used saffola sunflower oil/ feel free to use any seed oil/olive oil)
3 spoons- hung curd/Greek Yogurt (quickest way to make hung curd..click here)
4 tsp- cane sugar (I do not buy white sugar anymore - raw cane sugar is way healthier, since it has natural minerals that are otherwise lost during processing of white sugar)
Cinnamon powder and fennel powder
Pinch of rock salt/mineral salt
Nuts of your choice (I have used toasted almonds and sunflower seeds to top the cookies)


A Little About Raw Cane Sugar

You get raw cane sugar as a byproduct from sugarcane processing - here goes the list of byproducts --
first, sugarcane juice -
then molasses.-
heated molasses give you jaggery
since jaggery has some impurities, it is refined to make raw cane sugar -
further refining gives you brown sugar -
final refined product is white sugar
bura is powdered white sugar

How to Make Weight Loss Cookies


Take a bowl and add oil and hung curd to it.
Throw in cane sugar.
Add salt, fennel powder,  cinnamon powder, and whisk very well until the mix gets nice and fluffy.
Does it look light and fluffy?
If so, go ahead to the next step.
Take a strainer and sift both flours well. The more the better.
Add the flours to the oil mix and mix. 
PLEASE NO KNEADING REQUIRED HERE.
We are going to make a crunchy cookie batch and not a chewy one here.
Kneading will help form gluten and your cookies might turn out chewy.
So the idea is to mix everything and leave it covered for half an hour on the kitchen counter shelf.
Throw in the toasted nuts.
After 30 minutes, the dough would look beautiful and should have absorbed the wet mix.
Let's go to making weight loss cookies with the dough.
Either roll out into a thick chapati or make lime sized balls.
Do not play with the dough much now.
Make cookie shapes and bake at 170 degrees for 12-15 mins.
I have airfried this batch of weight loss cookies with oatmeal.
Airfry the cookies at 170 degrees for 12 mins. If they look unbaked, airfry for a couple of mins more.
Allow your weight loss digestives to cool down completely before storing them in an airtight container.
These are perfect munchies for your tea time.

Eggless Butterless Whole Wheat Sponge With Jaggery

A whole wheat sponge, that too, with minimum ingredients? No, I am not kidding. This baked beauty before you is the result of a successful experiment with whole grains. I am glad about the results. Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk. But I am sure the result should be the same (rather, more flavorful) with dairy-free milk. I could add plain water too, but reserved the thought for another baking session.


If you want to learn how to make almond milk or coconut milk at home, it is quite simple. I never buy these from the market; rather, prefer to make everything at home.


Here are the recipes to make almond milk at home.

Of course, family health comes first, and you want your kids to eat healthy.
