Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless


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!
badam oats cookies

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.

Ever since my airfryer homecoming, I have always chosen to go for airfryer cookies, and not touched my convection ever since. That's the beauty of airfryer baking.

Okay, so let's come back to the badam cookie recipe. Did I say this is a no raising agent cookie recipe?
It

  • uses no white sugar
  • is sweetened with mineral-rich jaggery
  • does not use calorie-dense maida
  • uses fiber-rich oats and whole wheat flour (and also bran)
  • is baked in an airfryer (though it is super simple to bake in an oven or convection)
Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, let's go through some oats benefits.

The next time your tiny tot demands a crunchy cookie, this should be your go-to badam cookie recipe. Trust me, this simple cookie recipe will not disappoint!

Nutty bites - you can't stop at one 
My take on these cookies with whole wheat and oats - of course, there is no refined sugar here. Instead, I have chosen to sweeten these yummy badam bites with jaggery powder. Any takers?
PS: Please ignore the design - I wanted to recreate Mom's Magic design, but ended up with this.

The kid-friendly cookie recipe will appeal to the taste buds of elders too. So what are you waiting for?
The simple cookie recipe is seriously simple and a healthy take on market junk.

If you want to give your family the best of health, then this is the recipe to kick-start your healthy baking journey.
eggless almond cookies with whole wheat oats

Ingredients

1 cup= 235 ml
3 tablespoon- desi ghee (cold) - I refrigerate ghee for cookies- you can refrigerate it for 30 mts before using
2 tablespoon- oil (olive/saffola/sunflower/rice bran)
2 tbsp- dehydrated milk powder
1-2 tablespoon- milk
1/4 cup- oats powder/powdered oats
1/2 cup -whole wheat flour
1/4 cup- almond powder
pinch of black salt
4 tablespoon- dry jaggery powder (or more for a sweeter version- I take it less sweet)
1 tablespoon- whole wheat bran
almonds -(broken/pounded in a mortar and pestle)

How to make almond biscuits with oats


  1. Add ghee, oil, salt, and jaggery powder in a bowl and use a hand whisker to whisk the mix.
  2. Keep whisking until it looks pale and fluffy.
  3. Next add 1 tablespoon milk and whisk again. Since we are making no baking powder cookies, this step is crucial to making crunchy bites. 
  4. Take a sifter/strainer and sift through whole wheat, oats and milk powder. Do this 2-3 times. Add all the bran to the flours that remains on top of the sifter after sifting.
  5. Add this flour mix to the buttered mix. Add bran as well.
  6. DO NOT KNEAD. THE IDEA IS TO SIMPLY MIX EVERYTHING. AT THIS STAGE, if the dough looks too loose, add 1-2 tbsp of extra atta. If it looks dry, add 1 tablespoon of milk. Ideally, this will be a loose dough, but not too loose that the cookies spread out.
  7. Throw in almond flakes and mix everything.
  8. Keep the dough covered for 30 mins. This is autolysis at work - meaning the flour will start absorbing the liquid and the dough should tighten a bit. 
  9. I always suggest not to knead the dough. Just gather the ingredients with hands or spatula or spoon and keep aside. If you knead, you are entering a dangerous zone - perhaps, you want your cookies to be chewy!!!Yes, this is the danger zone. I do not like my cookies to be chewy, so I never ever knead the cookie dough. You shouldn't do that as well. More so, when we are not using any baking agent as a leavener for the almond cookie recipe.
  10. After half an hour, preheat the oven/convection to 170 degrees for 10 mts. For airfryer cookies, preheat your machine for 5 mts.
  11. Roll out the dough on a sheet or dusted surface. Do not roll it out too thin - there is a fear of burning. Make sure you roll out a thick roti - slightly thicker than double the roti thickness.
  12. Take a cookie cutter or bangle to cut shapes. Use a knife to create design.
  13. Place the almond oats cookies on a baking tray at an even distance - do not clutter the tray much.This is important for even baking.
  14. Bake at 170 degrees for 12-15 mts. Keep an eye on your badam cookies after 12 mts. Jaggery cookies tend to darken quickly.
  15. Allow the oats atta cookies to cool down completely before dunking them in a glass of milk or munching with a cup of tea or relishing them without any beverage - your choice of course!

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…
