These fibre rich cookies are so easy to make and comes handy when your hungry kids come back from play, while travelling or even when you want to enjoy a healthy snack with your family with an evening tea or coffee!

This recipe uses no maida at all, can be made without sugar too and its simply delicious & crunchy! The best part I love about these are , that they need no soda or baking powder. Simple home made chemical free cookies.

  • Hi, I would like to try this recipe. Will you please tell me how much is the butter in grams? You mentioned 1 cup of cut pieces.

  • Renu – You can replace butter with almond butter, cold pressed oils etc. It needs a different proportion all together. There is a support group on facebook for Vegan Baking. You can try to check recipes there. Hope our answer was useful.
