Atta chocolate chip cookies

    Whole grain is something which contains all the three parts – that is the bran, endosperm and germ. Whole grains are always known to be beneficial not only because of the presence of vitamins and minerals in them , but also due to the content of beneficial phytochemicals and antioxidants in them. So its necessary to take a couple of servings of whole grain everyday. You could have wholegrain bread instead of plain white bread or substitute half the quantity of plain flour /maida with wholewheat flour in your baking. This increases your intake of whole grains. You could check out a list of whole grains here.

       Baking with wholewheat flour is always appealing to me.There are a wide range of wheat varieties which are milled to various kinds of wheat flour, each flour being used for different purposes. You can check out the varieties of wheat flours here. I have used whole wheat flour in breads and cakes before and I always wanted to try making cookies with them. Atta cookies or nankhatai was a instant hit at my place. I loved its soft yet crunchy texture. And of course, it tasted good too!!

    hey wow such a healthy one….Home made cookies is alwaz the best and urs came out prefect…good snack for kids i feel…

  24. Home Cooked Oriya Food

    lovely cookie…

  25. They look pretty good. I wish they wouldn’t mix maida to our Atta flours… there are a few brands that say 100% whole wheat, but I seriously doubt the claim they make.I do agree that cookies made with regular 100% whole wheat flour found here do not have the same texture as the regular flour, unless there is tons of butter and sugar added to it which kind of nullifies the idea of healthy food. Striking that balance is so difficult!

  26. cookies looks perfect….that too with whole wheat flour…

  27. Valarmathi

    LOvely cookies, looks delicious.

  28. Sowmya Madhavan

    @Anudivya- I agree with you ..commercially available atta flour does contain some amount of maida though they claim not to do so..I have seen export quality aashirwad atta is much better than any other brands of atta, even better than pilsbury…its avaulable in Singapore, not sure of other countries..

  29. Prathibha

    wow such a healthy version of the cookie dear…looks super yummy

  30. looks tempting and delicious dear
