eggless ragi cookies with honey, eggless ragi cookies recipe
Today I am here with a healthy cookie recipe - Ragi honey cookies. I have been experimenting a lot with ragi flour lately and I made ragi kozhukattai for dinner last night. Though couldn't click a picture of it, while eating it, hubby suggested why don't I try ragi cookies next. I too liked the idea and today I tried these cookies and it came out really well. These cookies are very easy to make and are delicious as well as healthy compared to the regular cookies since finger millet flour is used and also instead of refined white sugar, honey is used for sweetening. My kids liked the cookies too.

Notes :

  • Just heat the butter till it is melted and then add the warm melted butter to the flour.
  • I used a tablespoon measure for dividing the cookie dough, to get same size cookies.
  • Baking time varies with the size of the cookie and its thickness.
  • I have used cashew half in the center of the cookie, if you do not want to add nuts, you can simply put crisscross with the back of the fork.

  9. Hi.. I'm new to this blog. Tempting me to try this cookies. 1/4th cup of honey is sufficient to bring the sugar taste in ragi cookies??? Please reply

    1. Hi Anonymous, Welcome to my blog! 1/4th cup of honey gives only mild sweetness to the cookies which was enough for our taste buds. As this is a healthy cookie, I didn't want more sweetness. But if you feel sweetness is not enough, then you can add sugar or powdered jaggery (couple of tablespoons) if you want. But do not add more honey, that will affect the consistency of the dough. Hope I could answer your query. :)
