Eggless Whole Wheat Almond Cookies – They were just Perfect if I may say so. I have been planning to make ladoo for some time but ended up making these. Still, NO ONE complained 😉
One new year resolution which we followed whole heartedly was to stop buying biscuits/ cookies. we were having them with morning tea, evening tea, at snack time without realising how much sugar, refined flour and fat we were consuming. My kids love cookies and we had to start replacing store bought cookies with homemade ones soon to make them happy.
These cookies are made with whole wheat flour and ghee which are both good for kids. I use brown sugar in this recipe which makes them extra crisp and adds a special flavor to the cookies. If you want you can make these with white sugar also.
My kids absolutely love these. I had to keep the cookies in the lock to save some for photos.
How to make Eggless Whole Wheat Almond Cookies
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
baking time : 15-20 minutes
makes around 18
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup ghee
1/2 cup powdered almonds
1/2 cup powdered brown sugar or white sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cardamom powder
3-4 tbsp milk
1 tbsp slivered almonds
To make Eggless Whole Wheat Almond Cookies
Preheat the oven at 180° C for 10 minutes.
Mix flour, sugar, salt, powdered almonds and cardamom powder nicely. Add ghee to the dry mixture.
Mix evenly rubbing with your fingertips. Now use milk to make the dough. Start by adding a little milk and keep on adding till you get a soft dough.
The number of cookies will depend on the size. I got around 18 big cookies. divide the dough into 18 balls. Give shape to the cookies. Press slivered almonds with gentle hands on the cookie. Bake at 180° C for 15- 20 minutes.
baking time depends a lot on your oven . So keep an eye on them when you bake them for the first time.
Once baked take out of the oven immediately and leave undisturbed for 5 minutes. Cookies are very soft right out of the oven and they will become firm after 5 minutes.Shift them to wire rack to cool down completely. Store in an airtight container.
