Chickpea Digestives: A No Baking Powder Kid-Friendly Cookie Recipe


Well, well, well, you all have heard of, tried, and tested (read tasted) atta oats digestives, right? How about twisting the ingredient list somewhat? I have done exactly that. Despite these being dubbed as "digestives," these are the tastiest ever chickpea cookies available, tasting like besan burfi. You can't stop at one. The standout point is these use no raising agent, no white sugar, and are low in saturated fat. So these make perfect tea time treats for one and all (of course not for diabetics). This kid-friendly recipe will be a hit at your home.

This is not a diabetic friendly recipe.
This is not a gluten-free recipe.
This is a kid-friendly recipe.

I have been experimenting with various grains, flours, and cereals to come up with a healthy cookie recipe. After having tried our normal digestives with whole wheat and oats, this time it was the turn of chickpea flour.

When dad tasted these chickpea digestives, he said "these are very tasty and taste like besan burfi."
besan digestives





1 cup measures 175 ml

3 tbsp- olive oil or any other flavorless oil (sunflower/rice bran)
1 tbsp- cold/solidified ghee or butter (I refrigerate ghee for 30 mts before baking)
1 cup- chickpea flour (besan)
1 cup- oatmeal/powdered oats
3 tbsp- jaggery powder/raw cane sugar (you may add more if you have a sweet tooth)
1 tbsp- milk
2 tbsp- wheat bran

How to make chickpea flour digestives: No Baking Powder Airfryer Recipe


Whisk together ghee, raw cane sugar, and oil. It is important to whisk very well.
Add milk and whisk again until your shoulder starts to pain or the mix looks well incorporated.
Next take a sifter and sieve both flours 2-3 times.
Start adding the flour in parts to the wet mix.
Add half of the flour and mix with a spatula or hands.
Add the rest of the flour and mix again.
DO NOT KNEAD. KNEADING results in gluten development. Crunchy cookies shouldn't have gluten formation.
Add 1 tbsp of whole wheat bran and mix again.
Let the dough sit covered on the counter for 20-30 mts.
Roll out the dough. Do not roll out a thin sheet. It should be of medium size.
Spread the rest of the bran on a tray.
Place the cookies on the bran so that the bran covers the digestives well. I added bran at this stage itself and did not add it before, so some of the bran was left on the tray.
Place the chickpea digestives on a baking tray and refrigerate for 20 mts.
Preheat the oven/mw convection to 160 degrees for 10 mts.  I have made these in the airfryer.
Preheat the airfryer for 5 mts.
Bake/airfry for 8-10 mts.
Check if done.
Remove from the airfryer/oven/microwave.
Allow the digestives to cool down completely before munching or storing these beauties in an airtight jar.
Enjoy melt-in-the-mouth besan digestives that taste like besan burfi.

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.
