Eggless Walnut And Honey Cookies

Eggless Walnut And Honey Cookies

This is my 50th recipe! I thank all my viewers for supporting me and motivating me. It is your Inspiration that keeps my site going.

I was waiting to reach the 50th recipe mark. I wanted a dish that would be easy and irresistible to make and so I thought of baking some cookies. I love baking. So now which cookie?

My son does not like to eat walnuts in raw form. He is very fussy about eating them. Walnuts not only taste great but are a rich source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and an excellent source of  omega-3 fatty acids. Hence I contemplated about making a cookie from walnuts.

I was  surfing through different types of walnut cookies recipe and then I saw a Turkish  kind of walnut cookie. They had used oil and butter to make the cookie. That reminded me of how our elders used oil and clarified butter (ghee)  as Mohan for making crisp and melt in the mouth poori or shakarpada. I thought of using the same for baking my walnut cookie and that resulted in baking the melt in the mouth walnut cookies.

I have used honey and cinnamon. Honey helps in getting a nice golden crust of the cookie. It helps in retaining moisture in the cookies and less sugar is used. Cinnamon gives nice spicy flavor to the cookie.

I have crushed the walnuts, however, you can even chop them if you want a crunchier taste. For variation, you can sprinkle choco chips or sugar on them.

This is an eggless cookie. It is loaded with the goodness of walnuts, honey, and cinnamon. You will not be able to  resist having more.

They are a good alternative for the kids’ lunchbox. A perfect treat with evening tea. Just serve them freshly baked during High Tea.

If you do not have self-raising flour at home, then just add 1 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp of salt to the all purpose flour.
I have used whole wheat flour and self raising flour in equal proportions. You can use either of them 100%. If using whole wheat flour 100%, use 1 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp of salt.
I have used unsalted butter. If you do not have then use the regular salted butter and skip the salt in the recipe.
You can also use the granular clarified butter (Mawadar or kanidar Ghee).
