Healthy Millet Seed Cookies

That’s a Healthy Millet Seed Cookies!!

The Recipe idea came out after I read the “Chewy gooey crispy crunchy” cookies book by Alice Medrich. This book has all types of cookies, biscuits and bars you would like to bake. All the recipes are explained step by step. This is a must have book in your shelf if you are a Cookie Lover.

As I was going through this book, I am surprised to see Fennel Seeds in “Crunchy Seed Cookies”. I started thinking of “How will fennel seeds taste in a cookie?” They also have flax and sesame seeds. I couldn’t stop thinking myself, so I am sort of pushed to try this recipe.

Major difference is she used All Purpose Flour. In my Recipe I used Kodo/ Varagu Millet Flour as the base. I made some other changes too.

The Aroma itself was so tempting. As soon as I baked these cookies, I just tasted it hot. It was unbelievably delicious!!

Do check out my other recipe that uses Kodo/Varagu Millet Flour:
