How To Make Healthy Dark Fantasy Biscuits in Airfryer

When you want to make healthy chocolate cookies with whole wheat flour, this recipe can come in handy.

Pulse cashews to powder and blitz at regular intervals to make cashew butter. It will take time so give timely breaks to your processor.

once done, add date palm jaggery or sweetener of choice along with green cardamom for flavor. You may use any other natural flavor to appeal to your kid's taste buds. Let us flavor our homemade healthy biscuits with natural spices and herbs so kids do not find anything attractive or addictive in storebought or packaged stuff. 

next, add malai or cream and blitz again. 

But all in all, cashews in these healthy biscuits make them addictive. Believe me, all the packaged goods are gardually taking us toward a disease epidemic that we literally cannot avoid market junk.

Set  aside 1.5 tbsp of the cashew paste in another bowl. 

healthy cookies recipe with date palm jaggery without baking powder soda

Add cocoa powder to this 1.5 tbsp of the paste. If you want the chocolate filling to be gooey, stop here, else, add oats to this. Keep aside. This is our healthy chocolate filling.

Now it's time to add water to make the remaining cashew paste a little thinner. Do not be tempted to add more liquid. You will not get the desired results.

Sift whole wheat flour in batches and mix with the rest of the cashew paste. Look at the darker hue of the dough. It's all because of date palm jaggery, which is extracted from the palm tree sap and processed to make jaggery. It is rich in calcium and known as nolen gur in Bengali. Just like our traditional jaggery, date plam jaggery can be enjoyed as a sweet treat on its own.

Preheat oven, otg, convection, airfryer to 140 deg c for 10 minutes. You do not need to preheat an airfry that long - 5 minutes is good. If you want to bake these no maida no sugar choco fill cookies in cooker or kadahi, it's time to preheat the utensil to create an oven-like environment. You may use salt or sand as a base layer.

Take small lime-sized balls. Flatten with palms and drop a tiny bit of the filling paste. Cover from all ends. Roll into a ball with gentle hands. Press gently with palms. Dust some oat flour . But that's optional. 

That's it. Your healthy whole wheat chocolate cookie is ready to go into the baking mode (mood).

Place on a baking sheet or in the airfryer basket and bake for 15-20 min at 140 deg celsius.

As always timing might vary from one appliance to another. So keep an eye on these beauties after 15 minutes, though they may take longer in your machine because an airfryer bakes really fast.

Let the chocolate cookies cool down before munching on these crispy on the top and chewy from inside cookies. The healthy chocolate filling is to die for. So yumm.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body. Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking. Remove foam from top to reduce gassy elements from millets.  How long should millet be soaked before cooking? Soaking the millets overnight is a safe practice. Soaking breaks down the phytic acid in millets or for that matter grains and nuts. Phytic acid hinders the absorption of minerals and nutrients in food, including calcium, iron, and zinc. How? Phytates bind to minerals and nutrients and make their absorption difficult in the gut. Your tummy finds it tough to digest millets in that case. So soaking millets and draining off that soaked water makes it easier on your tummy.  Are millets safe for thyroid? Does
