Sugarless Vegan Banana Atta Cake: Baking With Whole Grains

I experiment to share!
I experiment because I care!
I experiment to enrich lives!
I experiment to bring out positive vibes!
I experiment to change the "bland" notion associated with health!
I experiment so you can turn healthy baking hobby into wealth!

Mom and dad were here and they are not too fond of cakes. But I had 4 bananas staring at me- as they were 2 days old and I do not like the taste of "stale" bananas. Hey, I do not like baked bananas too - but with God's grace, my two banana cakes with whole wheat do not have an overpowering banana flavor. This atta cake is special because it includes a variety of ingredients - all healthy and delicious!

Let's come back to the eggless banana cake recipe with whole wheat.

Before that, I want to make it aptly clear that I am no cake expert, not even a baking professional. I have not learned nor tried to learn the baking basics still. My bakes thus far are the result of experiments and a number of failures. I sti…

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.


Here are the recipes to make almond milk at home.

So what makes this low fat cake so special?
Well, the eggless atta ca…

Healthy Cookies Eggless for Kids | Badam Oats Cookies No Baking Soda Oven Maida

Cookies! Healthy cookies for kids and elders on my mind always! Cookies without baking powder/soda,/maida. Oats cookies with a nutrient punch from almonds and whole grains.

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.

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 co…

Dairy-Free Vegan Kulfi With Broken Wheat: A Kid-Friendly Recipe for Dieters, Weight Watchers, Diabetics

If you have been looking for a sugar-free kulfi, which is also vegan, then this nutty dairy-free frozen delight is for you. It's Mother's Day today, and what better way to treat your kids to a frozen delight than a nutty vegan kulfi, which is:

My dear friends, this vegan ice cream is sugar-free, but still not the best choice for a diabetic. However, my dear diabetic friends, do not lose heart here. This nutty dairy-free kulfi has everything you can ask for in a diabetes-friendly recipe, except the jaggery part. So how you can make it diabetic friendly is super simple - omit jaggery and replace it with stevia drops and cinnamon powder to hide the minty stevia flavor. Voila! The vegan kulfi recipe works equally well for dieters and weight watchers. Hey, did I mention it is a kid-friendly recipe too?
