The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe


The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.

Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?

Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not have quinoa handy)
3 tbsp- ghee (cold - refrigerate for 1 hour before using for the digestives recipe)
3 tbsp-olive oil
1/2 tsp- baking soda
2 tbsp- thick curd
2 tbsp- honey
2-3 tbsp- raw cane sugar/dry jaggery powder
1 tbsp- roasted flax powder

How to make multigrain digestives


This is thus far the best digestives recipe you can come across. The reason being the delicious bites that can turn a no-cookie admirer into a digestives lover. Hubby dear, who is not too fond of cookies, seems to be falling in love with his wifey's cookie exploits.

Anyway cookies are not the healthiest snacks to savor, but they can be made healthier from the market junk.

Sift all the flours along with baking soda 3-4 times. Set aside. This includes powdered oats, whole wheat, ragi. quinoa, and bran. I know there will be a lot of coarse flour remaining on the strainer. Just throw it into the flour once you are done sifting. You will love these tiny bits in these delicious bites.
Next, add cold butter and olive oil or any other flavorless seed oil to the flour.
Throw in raw cane sugar.
Start rubbing the ghee-oil into the flour. This should be done until there is no oil-ghee visible. The atta should give you a greased look by now. Remember, this will be more like wet bread crumbs. Add flax powder and mix again.
Take another bowl. Add curd and honey. Whisk well.
Add the entire atta mix to this curd-honey bowl.
It might look sticky. Never mind. Leave the mix covered for half an hour on the counter.
Preheat oven/mw convection for 10 mts at 160 degrees.
For me, this is again an airfryer recipe. I preheated airfryer for 5 mts.
Meanwhile, roll out the dough into a thick chapati - the size should be almost double or triple that of roti - do not keep it too thick or too thin.
I baked these in 4 batches. Cut cookie shapes - airfried one batch while the rest sat in the refrigerator.
Bake/airfry for  10-12 minutes at 160 degrees.
Baking at a low temperature will ensure even cooking from all sides and give you crunchy bites. Moreover, if you bake/airfry at a higher temperature, the digestives might burn out too quickly.
Allow the digestives a resting period of 5 mins and then remove them from the oven/airfryer on a cooling rack.
Start munching on these crunchy munchies only once they have cooled down completely.
Enjoy a unique burst of digestive flavors and revert with feedback on this simple cookie recipe or my easy digestives recipe.

  1. Hello Ravneet! Thanks for sharing your brilliant recipe. I've a question. Can we substitute wholewheat flour with something else? Or avoid it totally?

    1. Why do you want to avoid whole wheat flour? You can substitute with amaranth flour. Check this recipe for amaranth digestives: http://www.mercuryimp.com/2017/02/crunchy-amaranth-cookies-with-semolina.html

  2. This is a really amazing air fryer as it has many features and it makes cooking easy even if you are not professional in cooking. I also have that fryer which I use when my mom will not be at home. You can also find more unprofessional cooks like me who use this to make food.

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.

If baking without baking powder interests you, then you will be a permanent visitor here, for we think, live, and eat healthy and primarily focus on baking without baking powder or soda.


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.

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 rep…
