Let's see how you can bake healthy whole wheat oats chocolate digestives with jaggery that are crispy, light in weight and your tea-time partner. I have been baking a lot of cookies without baking powder and soda. But I have been craving for digestive biscuits for some time, so decided to make a batch with oats and whole wheat along with a hint of chocolate. 

For the chocolate digestives recipe in airfryer, you need

240 ml cup

1/2 cup minus 2 tbsp jaggery powder (sift and use)

1/2 cup of whole wheat flour

1/2 cup minus 2 tbsp of oat flour

1 tbsp- besan or chickpea flour

1 tbsp- cocoa powder

1 tsp- baking powder (yes, for this oats digestives recipe, we need baking powder)

How to make cookies without parchment paper in airfryer

Sift all dry ingredients

Add 4 tbsp of solid butter. Start rubbing the fat into the flour with your hands. it may take 1-2 minutes or more. But this step is important. 

Let's sift the flour-butter mixture. This sifted flour is your digestives premix. Store in a ziplock or airtight container in the freezer. Thaw and use whenever you are craving healthy digestives.

Next add water or milk 1 tbsp at a time. I required 3 tbsp to make a soft dough. 

Do not knead. Preheat the airfryer to 160 degree celsius for 5 minutes.

Roll out the oats digestives dough into a thick chapati (1/4th inch in thickness).

Cut shapes and make insertions with a fork.

Place on a baking tray. I use my stainless steel basket to bake in airfryer.

Bake for 15 minutes at 160 degree c.

Check, if done. Else, bake for 2 minutes more. For oven, otg, or convection, oats digestives will take longer. 

Let the healthy cookies cool down before enjoying one with a hot cuppa. 

The hint of chocolate makes these digestives even tastier. Do try out the cookies recipe and share your feedback. 

If you have ever tried any of my cookie recipes, please post in comments and share pics with me. I

Until next time. Stay safe. Stay blessed.

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
