Atta Biscuits (Whole Wheat Cookies)

atta biscuits

I wanted to bake some really healthy, less sweet cookies. So I ended up baking these atta biscuits or whole wheat cookies. They are healthy since whole wheat flour and vegetable oil are used instead of refined flour and butter. These atta biscuits are not very sweet and soft to eat and not crunchy.
Recipe of atta biscuits/ whole wheat cookies
1 cup atta (whole wheat flour)
5 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
1 tsp baking powder
1. Mix oil and sugar in a bowl. Beat really well till it turns light and fluffy.
2. Sieve together atta and baking powder. Mix in cardamom powder.
3. Mix this in the oil-sugar mixture. Knead into soft dough. If the dough is difficult to knead, add some chilled milk. Keep it aside for a while.
3. Preheat oven to 180 degree C.
4. Form small balls from the dough and flatten them between your palms. Line a baking tray with cookie sheet and lightly grease it.
5. Place biscuits on the tray keeping a little distance between them. Bake them at 180 degree C for 10-12 minutes. Let the atta biscuits cool completely before sampling them. Store in an airtight container.
