Happiness is baking healthful goodness for your loved ones. The feeling you get when you receive the best compliments from your family. Happiness surely is your bhabhi and brother saying these cookies do not have a match, adding they do not feel like having the market junk now.

I have tried digestives an umpteen number of times, experimenting here and there and making modifications every time. What makes these digestives special is the low amount of fat, subtle sweetness, and high fiber from oats and whole wheat bran. Absolutely crunchy and yummy. Digestives can't get yummier and healthier than this!




Earlier, I have tried Nutrichoice digestives and Mcvities digestives. This time I wanted to include a good amount of bran since I love these fibrous, tiny bits to recreate my digestive cookie recipe Patanjali like. Do check out my weight loss digestives recipe for the health freak in you.

PS: This digestives cookie recipe is not for diabetic patients, as it uses a little amount of raw cane sugar and honey that have a high GI and can instantly cause blood sugar spike. I will come up with a diabetes-friendly digestives recipe soon.

Why Chocolate Digestives

Well, if you are looking for ways to make oatmeal delicious, then this is the best way to feed oats to your little ones. The chocolate digestives with oatmeal is a delicious way to feed fiber-rich oats to your tiny tots.

Homemade whole wheat chocolate digestives Ingredients

No. of cookies: 30

1 cup- powdered oats
2 tbsp- whole wheat bran
3/4 cup- whole wheat flour
2 tbsp- raw cane sugar (add 1 tsp extra for chocolate digestives)
2 tbsp- honey or maple syrup (people have reservations about using honey for baked goodies. My research shows no honey toxicity connection thus far, so I go ahead with using honey in my bakes)
2 tbsp- cold butter or ghee (refrigerate ghee for an hour before using it in the digestives recipe) 
3 tbsp- olive oil (add 1/2tbsp oil extra for chocolate digestives)
2 tbsp- milk
1/2 tsp- baking soda
pinch of mineral salt
cocoa powder-2tbsp (for chocolate digestives)

How to make the best Oatmeal digestives: Patanjali/Mcvities Like


chocolate digestives

  • Take oats, whole wheat flour, bran, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Sift well so that baking soda is evenly distributed. Here, I would like to inform that I am trying to bake digestives without any raising agents. Let me see if I get best results.
  • Take a separate small bowl (katori) and add milk and honey to it. Mix very well until honey is well mixed. 
  • Throw in raw cane sugar, ghee, and olive oil. Rub with hands. Make sure you rub the flour really well. This will help add that extra crunch to the digestives. The flour should look like wet bread crumb mixture. Remember, it should not be dry. If it looks dry, you may add extra oil. I did not need that.
  • Add the honey-milk mix to the flour. The flour mix may look a little sticky. But that's okay. Just gather the mixture and refrigerate for 20-30 mts.
  • Preheat oven/mw convection to 170 degrees for 10mts. I have airfried the digestives. Preheat airfryer for 4 mts.
  • Take out the cookie dough from the fridge and roll it out like a thick roti.
  • Use a bangle or cookie cutter to cut shapes.
  • Use a fork to make insertions in the cookies.
  • Place the cookies on a baking tray at a distance from each other.
  • Bake/airfry for 12 minutes or until the edges start to brown slightly.
  • Remove the chocolate digestives from the oven when done and place on a cooling rack.

The best digestive cookies are ready- start munching these baked beauties with a cup of milk or tea. Have you tried out my instant OPOS tea or dum tea or masala chai - the 5-minute tea recipe?

What makes these digestives different and special is the inclusion of bran and the honey-milk concoction. I feel this mix does the magic here. I am in love with these digestives and would love to grab one right away. What I love about these digestives is the subtle sweetness and crunch. The tiny grainy bran is what makes munching on these oatmeal digestives a beautiful experience. Are you ready to experiment with the best digestive cookies? Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

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…

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
