Oats Whole Wheat Lemon Cookies With Olive Oil/ Eggless Cookies/ Butter Free Cookies

Oats whole wheat lemon cookies with olive oil. A delicious and vegan lemony cookies with all the goodness of oats whole wheat olive oil and lemon. Some of my readers asked on my Coffee cookies post if they can use oil instead of butter or ghee. So now a cookie without butter or ghee.

I have used olive oil but if you don’t have olive oil, use any flavorless vegetable oil or coconut oil. I have used little powdered sugar to sweetened the cookies. Next time I will try to share some cookies without sugar. Stay tuned. In these cookies 1/4 cup sugar and 1/8 cup desiccated coconut gave enough sweetness. You can also use powdered jaggery or stevia if you want. To make it gluten free use pearl millet flour/bajra atta, almond flour, coconut flour, cornmeal or any other gluten free flour of your choice. This recipe is completely dairy free. But if you want to make buttery cookies for kids then you can use butter instead of olive oil. You may like some more lemon flavored bakes on this blog.

Eggless Malai Or Milk Topping Cookies



Egg less malai or milk topping cookies.
A very easy to make cookie. Perfect for kiddos.

You don’t need baking powder, soda, butter or ghee/clarified butter to make these delicious cookies.

Need only 3  ingredients in equal quantity with little cardamom powder or vanilla. Use the flavour of your choice.
I adopted the recipe from Nita Mehta’s cookbook.

I made one with whole wheat flour and added little red colour to make it attractive.
And white one is made with all purpose flour.




Milk topping or malai  – 1/2 cup

Powdered sugar  – 1/2 cup

Whole wheat flour/atta or all purpose flour/maida – 1/2 cup

Cardamom powder or vanilla  – 1/2 teaspoon

Almonds or cashew nuts ( split into two)  – as require


Grease an oven tray and keep aside.
Preheat the oven at 200 degrees.

Mix malai and sugar lightly. Sift atta or maida.
Add the maida or atta and cardamom powder or vanilla to the malai mixture.

Add flavour of your choice. I used cardamom powder. Knead lightly to form a soft dough.

Form round balls and flatten slightly. If the dough is too soft and difficult to form balls keep it in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes and then shape them.

Place the balls on oven tray 1” apart.
Place almonds or cashew nuts on each cookie. You can sprinkle little cardamom powder on each cookie too. I didn’t.

For red colour cookies added little red colour in the dough. Flatten the dough on a plate to cut hearts with a cookie cutter.
Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes. Or until the edges of the cookies are golden and the top still whitish.


Remove tray from the oven and quickly and carefully lift the cookies off with all knife. Keep them to cool and become crisp.
Enjoy with tea or coffee.
