Why Jowar Cookies

My kids love cookies and I am always trying for some healthier options. So this time I used Jowar flour instead of whole wheat or all purpose. Yes I was a bit sceptical for the end result, as this is the first time I am using this flour in baking. But the end result can be seen in the pics. Plus my son was enjoying them as one day he told me he eat 2 in a row :-). Happy kid happy mumma.

In this recipe, I have added less sugar. But if you have a real sweet tooth you can increase the quantity by 1/4 cup more. One can even add chocolate chips in the cookies to add a bit of a crunch. So without much talking futher, here is the recipe for Eggless Jowar Chocolate Cookies

Eggless Jowar Chocolate Cookies (Gluten Free)

So here goes the recipe:

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Jowar Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Soft Unsalted Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder **See Notes
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essense
  • 1.5 tbsp Cocoa Powder **See Notes
  • Chopped Almonds or Almond Flakes for Garnish (Optional)

Preparation

  • Arrange a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl sift in the Jowar flour, Baking powder and Cocoa Powder
  • In another bowl, with a hand blender or with the heel of your hand beat the butter and sugar until it forms a creamy texture. It will change its colour (around 2-3 mins)
  • Add Vanilla Essence and give a quick mix.
  • Add the dry ingredients to it.
  • The mixture will appear or be dry.
  • Just assemble everything with hand, you should be able to form a lump as shown in the pic.
  • Divide it into equal size balls and arrange on the baking sheet keeping enough space between cookies.

  • In the meantime preheat the oven to 150 Deg C
  • Bake the cookies for 20-25 mins.
  • After 20 mins or so, you should be able to smell the cookies. They are ready when they are a bit soft but yet firm to touch.
  • Remove and let it cool on the baking sheet itself.
  • Once cooled completely, store it in an air tight container.

Notes

  • 1 Cup = 235 ml, 1 tablespoon = 15ml, 1 teaspoon = 5ml
  • If your mixture is too dry and you are unable to form balls, add a tablespoon of milk at a time to the mixture.
  • Baking time varies according to oven, so keep an eye out after 15 mins.
  • Baking temperature varies and some oven’s are very hot. If you have one of that kind, it is best to reduce the temperature a bit.
  • For Gluten Intolerant , please use Gluten Free Baking Powder and Cocoa Powder

    • It is Jowar flour. It is a gluten free flour. Jowar is called Sorghum in English. I have not used Oat flour here.

    • Dear Sonia, It is 150 Deg C as mentioned in recipe and not 150 deg F. I think you did not read the C. 250 deg C is too high, even breads are not baked that high. If you can reply did you bake at 150 C or F?

      Thanks,
      Renu

    • Thank Your for the feedback. Are you in a place where moisture is an issue. Also did you keep it in air tight container after it got cooled down completely, if they would have been a bit warm and the container is closed it would retain moisture.
