gluten-free cookies: refined sugar free


Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance

People with celiac disease are not able to tolerate gluten. Even a slice of a gluten cake or cookie can trigger symptoms of celiac disease – a condition in which there is an immune response to gluten ingestion that causes damage to the intestinal lining. As a result, nutrients in the food are not easily absorbed, causing a host of health issues, including seizures, infertility, neurological problems, and osteoporosis.


Celiac disease is diagnosed with a blood test to confirm the presence of antibodies against protein - tissue transglutaminase. The diagnosis is confirmed following a biopsy of the intestine. It is caused by the body’s abnormal autoimmune response to gluten, which can damage the gastrointestinal (GI) tract lining, resulting in severe skin rashes, anemia, diarrhea, and bone pain. In some cases, celiac disease may lead to intestinal cancer, if not treated on time.

So you should be looking for gluten-free recipes. If you love baked goodies, then you ought to try out gluten-free bakes, including cookies, cakes, savories, and crackers.

Friends, here's another gluten-free treat for you all. If there is someone with gluten sensitivity or celiac disease symptoms in your family or one of your clients requests a gluten-free cookie recipe, go for it. Kids will especially love this recipe for its chocolaty flavor. Healthy, nutty, and crunchy!Any takers?
ragi cookies sugar free

You will find it all here, for I am coming up with a series on gluten-free recipes.

Check below the recipe to make almond meal at home:



Learn how to make sprouted ragi flour at home:


gluten-free almond cookies

Ingredients
4 tbsp- Homemade sprouted ragi powder (finger millet - if you do not have sprouted flour, you may use plain ragi atta)
1/4 cup+2 tbsp- almond meal (here is the recipe to make almond meal at home)
2 tbsp- ghee / butter
1 tsp- milk (hot)
1/4 tsp- coffee powder
3 tbsp- jaggery powder
salt- pinch
2 pinches of b.soda.
1 tbsp- cocoa powder

How to make Gluten-Free Cookies With Ragi, Almond  Meal


Make a decoction with coffee powder. Add coffee to hot milk. I am not a coffee person, but I am starting to like the flavor in my cookies. But this hardly gives a coffee flavor. Add b.soda to hot coffee decoction. Give it a good mix.
Next, add jaggery powder to the decoction and whisk well. It will become frothy.
Now add ghee and whisk very well until everything looks well mixed.
Add salt, cocoa powder, and sprouted ragi flour. Mix with spatula or hands.
Add almond meal and fold everything.
Do not knead. Here we are not using any gluten ingredients so kneading will not result in gluten formation in this simple cookie recipe.
But I still prefer not to knead my cookie dough.
Preheat the oven/convection/airfryer to 170 degrees for 10 mts (airfryer for 5 mts).
Mix and take small lime-sized balls. Make sure these are really small.
Flatten with your palm or fork and place on a baking tray/sheet/airfryer basket.
Bake/airfry at 170 degrees for 15 mts.
Keep an eye on your gluten-free cookies. If they look little soft after 15 mts, you may bake these for 2 minutes more.
Remove on a cooling rack and let the cookies cool down before storing in an airtight container.

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.
