People at home are big biscuits fan…Typical morning begins with Tea and biscuits :P. Ive been contemplating making a healthier version of these baked goods since a while now. You ask me why??? There are many healthy options available now and I can choose from them right. Most healthy options have this

Small or large portion of refined flour

Artificial sweetener or white sugar

Preservatives, emulsifiers and raising agents (baking soda or soda bi carbonate)

None of these are healthy on daily basis

My version has none of these so lets see what it does have.

This recipe will give about 25-30 biscuits

Whole wheat flour (what you use at home to make chapatis or phulkas ) – 2 cups

Powdered Organic Jaggery – 3/4 cup (you can use non organic one too)

Clarified butter or Ghee – 1/2 cup (at room temperature)

Chopped nuts – 1/4 cup (I used almonds, chironji and some pumpkin seeds) you can choose whatever you like 🙂

Salt – 1/4 tsp

I also added a tsp of non sweet cocoa powder, but its totally avoidable (it was lying in the refrigerator so I used 😛 )

Mix all these with light hands and make it into a soft dough. If you feel its a bit dry add some cold milk or curds to make soft.

Make small balls and place on greased tray.

Pre heat the oven at 180 degree for 5 mins and then bake these at same temperature for about 15-20 mins or till they turn light brown

I baked them in 2 batches and was lost in the aroma for a while, taste them while they are warm and you won’t be able to stop. Ideally let them cool down and store in an airtight container to make sure others at home get them too. LOL.

Try and let me know about your experience. 🙂
