Multigrain Cookie

Multigrain cookie

Multigrain cookie is a nutritious and healthy cookie made using different flours. The cookie uses clarified butter (ghee) and is enriched with dates and honey. It is a very healthy snack and can be enjoyed with a cup of tea or coffee.

I have made diabetic friendly cookie using same flours and same method. I have skipped icing sugar and cocoa powder in the recipe and have added 1 tbsp of honey. The flavor of cookie is enhanced with cardamom powder.  I have shaped the cookies into small balls and then flatten them using fork.

My father in law was diagnosed with diabetes. Though it was on a border but he was very cautious and did not take any sugar. Pearl millet, chick pea and finger millet are considered to be good for diabetic person. So I thought of using them to make cookies. I have used only dates to sweeten the cookies.  You can use medjool dates if available. The cookies came out very well and he enjoyed them a lot.
