Chocolate chip Cookies:

Who doesn’t like Choco chip cookie? Let alone like, it is very difficult to resist. If it is guilt free, it is an added boon to relish these beauties. I usually don’t encourage my kids to have non-healthy stuff. It is the main reason I developed this recipe with lot of care.

It is a crunchy from the outside and soft from the inside kind of cookie. It has a whole wheat as well as protein rich Roasted gram powder, which is very nutritious and known as Sattu in India. Sattu is a powder form of roasted gram or Bengal gram or hurigadale in kannada. Added to this, I have added clarified butter/ ghee and ghee residue as well. To give more chocolatey appearance, added Choco chunks as well as chopped cooking chocolate.

How I proceeded is –


Whole wheat flour – 1 cup

Roasted gram flour/ Sattu – ½ cup

Baking soda –  1 tea spoon

Sea salt – ½ tea spoon

Choco chip – ½ cup

Chopped chocolates – ½ cup

Ghee – ½ cup

Ghee residue – 2 table spoon (optional)

White sugar – ½ cup

Brown sugar – ½ cup

Eggs – 2

Vanilla extract – 1 tea spoon

Instant coffee powder – 1tea spoon


-Pre heat Oven at 180 °C, Line the baking tray with the butter paper.

-Take one bowl, dry whisk all the dry ingredients starting from Whole wheat flour, Sattu flour, Baking soda, sea salt, and Choco chips and chunks.

-In a Food processor or in another bowl, beat sugar, ghee and ghee residue first.

– Add in egg, vanilla, coffee and beat until it is frothy.

-Now pour this liquid over dry ingredient and mix by using spatula or clean hand.

– Scoop out the dough and place over the lined cookie sheet.

-Bake this in a pre-heated oven for 15 minutes or until done.

-When it is done, take out, cool a little and then store this in an air tight container.

-This yielded 18 big size cookies for me.


-Alternatively you can use only All purpose flour or whole wheat flour as well.

-Ghee residue is a moist, brown coloured by-product formed after preparing ghee from white butter.



Oats cookies with kisses:

Wanted to use Hershey’s “Kisses” in baking from so many days, finally I did try out this and my kids liked it too. These are a real treat for kids and at the same time filled with high fiber and are healthy because of the usage of Whole wheat flour and oats. I like lemon flavor in my cookies, if you don’t want to use lemon you can add vanilla or cardamom too.


Now we will see how I made this.


Whole wheat flour -1 cup

Powdered oats – 1 cup

Sugar -1 cup

Baking soda -1 tsp.

Grated lemon zest- ½ to 1 tsp.

Ghee /Clarified butter – ½ cup

Milk – 3  to 4 table spoons (to bind)

Hershey’s Kisses chocolates for decoration.


-In a mixer jar, powder oats, measure and keep aside.

-powder sugar and keep aside.

-Now take one mixing bowl, take all the dry ingredients like whole wheat flour, oats powder ,sugar powder ,baking soda ,lemon rind and mix it thoroughly by using hand ,so that flavor will spread uniformly.

-Now mix in melted ghee and bind it together. If it is a little dry, add one to two table spoons of milk, if it binds and holds a shape well and good. Otherwise add one more table spoon of milk and make a ball like Chapati dough.

-Now pre-heat your oven in 180C.

-Line your cookie tray with butter paper or aluminum foil and keep it ready.

-Take one small cookie scoop or a Table spoon to shape the dough into semi-circle balls, and place them on a parchment covered baking/cookie tray.

-Base of this chocolate will melt a little, so it holds firmly after it cools down. Cookie will crack around the edges.

-Now don’t disturb these beauties and allow them to cool completely. It will take anywhere between one to two hours to cool completely.

-Because of the heat, chocolate will become very soft and after some time it will hold its shape and become firm.

-Then you can store this in an airtight container.
