We all know oats as world’s healthiest food. Better way to gain the strength and energy.
Pearl millet or bajra is rich in protein, fibre, minerals, phosphorus and iron. It has many health benefits due to its high nutritional value.
Sesame seeds are also rich in magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iron, vitamins, zinc, copper, fiber, folat and protein etc.
So its a perfect cookie for you and your kids to beat the cold.
Pearl millet or bajra flour/atta – 1 cup
Oats powder – 1/2 cup
Sesame seeds or til – 1/4 cup, lightly dry roasted and cooled
Powered sugar – 1 cup
Ghee or clarified butter – 1 cup
Baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon
Baking soda – 1/4 teaspoon
Cardamom powder – 1/2 teaspoon
Milk – 1 tablespoon
Preheat the oven at 180°
Grease a baking tray or line with parchment paper.
In a bowl mix pearl millet or bajra flour/atta, oats powder, sesame seeds or til, baking powder, soda and cardamom powder.
In a large bowl cream together clarified butter/ghee and powdered sugar. Beat well.
Add the dry ingredients. Mix well and make a smooth dough. Add little milk if require. I have added 1 tablespoon milk. You can use little more if you feel your dough is dry.
Take 1 tablespoon from the dough and make small balls out of it. Place on a greased tray 1 inch apart.
Press gently. Make a criss cross with a knife on every cookies.
Bake in preheated oven at 180° for 10 – 12 minutes or until the edges becomes light brown.
Don’t overbake. And don’t touch the cookies when hot. The cookies will soft when hot but they will turn crisp when cool.
So let the cookies cool down completely before serving. Store in an airtight container for later use.
Enjoy the mouth melting cardamom flavoured cookies with your tea or coffee.
Happy baking 🙂

Lovely savoury cookies with oat and pearl millet. It’s been a long time I baked anything, would love to try this sometime.
Love this pearl millet sesame oats cookies. What a wonderful way to get the family to enjoy bajra flour in the form of cookies. Wondering if I can replace the ghee with butter? If so does it have to be melted or just soft butter?

Thank you so much Mayuri. You can use soft butter, texture will be same but ghee will give a nice flavour. If you will make it with butter please let me know how it turns out 😊
Love these yum pearl millet cookies! Love the use of sesame seeds too perfect for the season. I too had the same question can I use butter? Will definitely make some as hubby prefers crisp cookies.

Love these bajra cookies with the addition of sesame seeds. They must have tasted so good after being roasted while baking the cookies. I will make them sometime soon.
These gluten free pearl millet sesame oats cookies look delectable. I have yet to try such a recipe. So nutritive and no feelings of guilt at all! Good for the winter season.
