Ragi Cookies

Ragi Cookies are healthy , gluten free cookies and can be enjoyed by toddlers and adults as well .

Ragi or finger millet or Nachini are all the same . They all speak the word health . The flour is full of calcium and is ideal for weight loss . It has a lot of fibre too .

Cookies with this flour would make a perfect munch for those in between hunger pangs , as they are light and crisp.They are perfect for kids lunch box or with your cup of tea.

I have another version of these cookies that I baked long back , in fact even these cookies were baked a while ago . They were baked for a friend’s grand son and sent to USA . I love to bake cookies but unfortunately none of us eat any kind of biscuits and cookies , so all the cookies are basically for gifts and I am glad my friends love these as gifts.

Check out this simple version of Ragi Cookies which are gluten free and healthy as well .These are my Day 6 post for Bakeathon. This week I juggled my drafts and we have Cookies and Biscuits as the theme.

  1. well, these look scrumptious to me 🙂 you can send me a gift too, Vaishali ! Lol 🙂 I dont bake cookies at all, and this bakeathon has thrown up a cookie and banana bread galore so far !

  2. The color of the cookie is such that kids may think it is chocolate… hehe… I have a cookie loving bunch at home but I don’t bake much of cookies, I have to get myself thinking hehe… I am sure whoever received these cookies must have really enjoyed them…

  3. I have seen so many bakes with ragi flour, but I haven’t made any. These ragi cookies look just like chocolate cookies – I think I should make these for my kids to see if they find the difference 😉

  4. OMG they really do not look like ragi cookies. Looks like chocolate overloaded cookies. I will try this definitely for my kids and for me too 😀 😀
