Eggless Walnut Butter Cookies (Whole Wheat)

Whenever I think of Cookies, I always remember the quick 1 minute eggless chocolate chip cookies. I have tried cookies with All purpose flour, but as a healthy change this time, wanted to try with whole wheat flour. When I was seraching for eggless whole wheat cookies recipe online, I came across  whole wheat cookies in jeyashri kitchen. I liked it, so I tried it with slight modifications. Crispy cookies became a great hit in our home, even my LO asks for one more bite:-)

Checkout my other cookie recipes,

Walnut Butter Cookies 
Preparation time :  10 minutes | Baking time : 15 minutes
Whole Wheat flour – 1 cup
Unsalted Butter – 1/2 cup  (melted in room temperature)
Walnuts – 1/4 cup powdered or finely chopped
Brown Sugar – 1/4 cup
White Sugar  – 4 tbsp
Cardamom Powder – 1/4 tsp
Salt – 1/8 tsp
Milk – 2 tbsp
  •  Preheat the oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit and grease the cooking tray with cooking spray
  •  In a bowl, mix the wheat flour, brown sugar, white sugar, salt, powdered walnuts and cardamom powder well with a whisk or ladle
  •  Add butter to the dry ingredients and make crumble. Add 2 tbsp of milk and make a soft dough. Make small balls and in a clean surface, press each ball lightly and cut them with a cookie cutter in a desired shape

  •  Place them in a cookie tray without touching each other and bake the cookies for about 12 -15 minutes or until cookies are lightly gold brown. Cool them and enjoy:-)



My Notes:
  • Instead using cookie cutter can also make round cookies
  • Cookies appear chewy initially but they became crisp after they are cooled completely
  • Almonds, pistachio, pecan or any nut of your choice can be used
  • Almond extract or any other extract can be added to add flavors
  • I used half brown sugar and white sugar instead white sugar can be fully used

      Wow tutti frutti cookie, love it:-) yes Ambica generally cookies looks soft when we takes out from oven after cooling it becomes crispy. Typically my oven take 13 minutes. Watch an eye after 12 mins. When you see light golden brown color remove from the oven. Do try it and let me know:-)

    I was never a fan of walnuts until I tried a cake made mostly from ground walnuts. For whatever reason, I loved the concentrated nutty flavor. And am thinking these cookies would be like that. Yum!

    Hi…vidya..aren’t you suppose to add any baking powder? Also the last time I followed a similar receipe, my buiscuits turned out to be hard from outside n soggy from inside:( any idea what could have gone wrong?

    • Traditionally Modern Food December 10, 2014 at 11:07 PM Reply

      Hi Vishakha,no baking powder is not required. There are lot of reason for this some are,

      Over-mixing after adding flour
      Heating butter instead of letting it softened at room temperature
      Using too much salt
