Whole Wheat Almond Cookies

These healthy cookies are baked using wholewheat flour and jaggery. The coffee in the recipe is used to cut down on the earthiness of whole wheat. Vanilla adds a new dimension to the coffee taste. You can also add chocolate chips to this cookie.


  • 1 cup wholewheat flour
  • ¾ cup jaggery
  • 4 tablespoons ghee
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup almonds, powdered
  • 1 teaspoon coffee powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence


  • Take a deep bowl and add the jaggery, coffee, vanilla essence and ghee to it. Mix well using an electric beater so you can incorporate the ingredients enough to make your cookies crispy. You can mix with a spatula too.
  • Next, add the baking soda and salt to the flour and sieve it twice. Now, add 2 spoons at a time and start mixing the flour into the ghee and jaggery mix.
  • Mix gradually with a spoon, ensuring you do not over mix it. You can use a little milk to make the dough softer but remember, it must be dough and not batter.
  • n the end, add the almond powder and mix it well.
  • Use your hands to bring the dough together and then keep the dough in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 180˚C and then bring out the dough. Roll the dough and use a cookie cutter to gently cut out cookies of the desired shapes.
  • Transfer your cookies to a baking tray and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Let them stay in the oven for 10 minutes to harden and then cool them on a rack.
  • Drizzle some powdered sugar on your cookies if you wish and store your cookies in an airtight container.
