Oats tutti frutti cookies with jaggery. Completely gluten free, eggless and sugar free cookies. Crispy crunchy cookies with the flavour of rose and cardamom. You don’t like rose flavour? No problem use vanilla essence, pineapple essence or any other flavour of your choice and enjoy the delicious healthy crispy crunchy cookies.
I have used little protein rich soybean flour with super food oats but if you don’t have soybean flour you can use any flour or use 1/4 cup more ground oats instead of soybean flour. Or you can also use 1/4 cup almond powder to make the cookies more nutritious. A delicious and healthy cookies for kids and adults both. Kids will love these tutti frutti cookies. You can also use any chopped dry fruits of your choice if you don’t like tutti frutti.
Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth. They’re a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. Studies show that oats and oatmeal have many health benefits. These include weight loss, lower blood sugar levels and a reduced risk of heart disease. Oats contain some unique components — in particular, the soluble fiber beta-glucan and antioxidants called avenanthramides. Benefits include lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, protection against skin irritation and reduced constipation. In addition, they are very filling and have many properties that should make them a weight loss friendly food. Source – Healthline

And she has a vast collection of delicious recipes. You will definitely love her healthy Ragi jaggery cookies, Biscuit cake without oven, Easy chicken fry and many more.
Narmadha suggested to share some kids recipe using any ingredient which kids normally don’t want to eat. So my contribution is this oats cookies with tutti frutti and jaggery. I have used organic jaggery powder. And used tutti frutti because kids love colorful tutti frutti. And used only 5 tablespoon tutti frutti but you can use more if you want. Or use any chopped dry fruits instead of tutti frutti. But tutti frutti will give an extra sweetness.
Oats – 1&1/2 cup
Soybean flour – 1/4 cup
Baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon
Baking soda – 1/4 teaspoon
Jaggery powder – 3/4 cup
Melted ghee/clarified butter or butter – 1/3 cup
Rose essence – 1/2 teaspoon
Cardamom powder – 1/2 teaspoon
Tutti frutti – 5 tablespoon + to sprinkle
Milk – 2 tablespoon
1. Preheat the oven at 180°. Grease or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Grind 1 cup oats into fine powder.
3. In a bowl mix oats powder, remaining 1/2 cup oats, soybean flour, cardamom powder, baking powder and soda.
4. In a large bowl whisk ghee or clarified butter and jaggery powder. Whisk well. Add rose essence and mix well.
5. Now add all the dry ingredients, tutti frutti and milk. Combine everything well. Don’t knead much. You can add more tutti frutti if you want. 1/3 to 1/2 cup tutti frutti can be used. See notes for more options.
6. Just combine and make balls with 1 tablespoon dough. I have made 19 cookies with this dough. Press the balls with your palms gently to make flat.
7. Arrange the cookies on a greased or lined baking sheet 1 inch apart. Sprinkle little tutti frutti over all the cookies. Press gently to stick tutti frutti on the cookies. This step is optional but it will give an attractive look. And kids will love it.
8. Bake in preheated oven at 180° for 10 to 15 minutes or until cookies becomes light golden brown. Don’t overbake.
9. Let the cookies cool down completely on a cooling rack. Serve these crispy crunchy cookies with a glass of milk or store in airtight container for later use.
1. Any chopped dry fruits can be used instead of tutti frutti.
2. You can use any other flour instead of soybean flour. Or use 1/4 cup more ground oats. Or you can also use almond powder to make the cookies more nutritious.
3. Powdered sugar, unrefined sugar or brown sugar can be used instead of jaggery powder.
