Whole Wheat Almond Eggless Cookies

This month’s Sweet Punch challenge was to make Whole Wheat Almond Eggless Cookies from Manjula’s Ktchen. These are absolutely easy to make cookies. You can give this recipe to kids who are interested in baking as their first experiment. I am sure they will be happy to make such tasty cookies by their own :) :)… I have already made these cookies twice in a month! I am trying to cut down the butter intake as far as possible, so first time I only added 1/3 cup of butter and the cookies were just fine and second time I reduced it to ¼ cup and increased milk to 2 table spoons more….second time also cookies tasted good but was not as crumbly and melt in mouth type… Do try these easy cookies with the actual amount of butter or by reducing it, the end result will be really delicious cookies to munch :)...

Whole Wheat Almond Eggless Cookies
(Recipe makes about 24)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 teaspoon green cardamom seed coarsely powder (ilaichi)
1/2 cup unsalted butter (8 tablespoons or 4oz)
About 2 tablespoons of milk or as needed


  • Pre heat the oven to 360 degree F/ 180 degree C.
  • In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar, salt, sliced almonds and cardamom powder well.
  • Next add soft butter and milk to the flour mixture to make dough. Dough should be very soft.
  • Divide the dough into about 24 equal parts and make them into balls.
  • Press each ball between your palms lightly; every piece should be about 1/2” in thickness.
  • Place the dough balls on an ungreased cookie sheet about inch a part.
  • Bake the cookies for about 18 minutes or until cookies are lightly gold brown.
  • After they become lightly golden brown remove the cookie sheet from the oven. Let the cookies cool down for two to three minutes before taking them off the cookie sheet.
