Healthy cookies

These are my favorite cookies and I make at least one batch a week. My kids savor this during the snack time, and I allow them without any guilt, as they contain all nutritious stuff.


Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
Raggi flour - 1/4 cup
Arrowroot powder(koovapodi) - 1/4 cup
Note : If raggi & arrowroot flour is not available, you can substitute with whole wheat flour, in which case, take 1.5 cups of wheat flour
Oats - 3/4 cup
Broken cashew - 2 tbsp (optional)
Chocolate chips - handful (brown or white) (optional)
Soft brown sugar - 3/4 cup (adjust as per your taste)
Sunflower oil - 3/4 cup
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Egg - 1
Water - 4-5 tbsp


1. Sieve together wheat flour, raggi flour, arrowroot powder & the baking powder. Mix in the oats, cashew & chocolate chips. Keep it aside.
2. In a deep bowl, whisk together oil and egg. Slowly add in the brown sugar and mix well.
3. Now add the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and combine well. If the mixture is thick, add water little by little. The consistency should be wet, but you should be able to make balls out of the mixture. If its difficult to handle at this stage, refrigerate the mixture for 1 hr
4. Take the mixture out, wet your hands and take a small ball of the mixture. Press it lightly on your palm and arrange it on a baking tray. Repeat till all the mixture is used up.
5. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees. Place the tray in the middle rack and bake for about 20 min. Take it out when the sides starts to brown lightly. Enjoy warm or you can place them in an airtight container once cooled.
