Ragi Chocolate Cookies

 

Finger Millet or Ragi or Nachni or Mandua as it’s known in different parts of India qualifies as a superfood, a grain which is duly recognized for what it has to offer ecologically, gastronomically and nutritionally. Like all Millets Ragi is gluten free, high in calcium, high in milk protein perfect asย a substitute for lactose resistant people and low in glycemic index making it suitable for the diabetics. This hardy grain requires very little care to grow, can thrive even in drought conditions and is resistant to pests and diseases.

 

With more and more people becoming health conscious this super grain is gaining popularity due to its immense health as well as weight loss benefits. Roti, Porridge, Pancakes, Dosas, Idlis, Cakes, Cookies, snacks …Ragi can be used in so many different ways. With enough reasons to embrace Ragi lot of recipes have been developed with this versatile healthy grain as the main ingredient .

 

Eggless Ragi Chocolate Cookies

 

With the 108 th Foodie Monday Bloghop theme being Millet Recipes I thought of using Ragi or Finger Millet in some chocolate cookies to make it healthy as well as tasty. The best part is it’s eggless, gluten free, sugar free, fat free as well as baking powder or soda free too !!

The Chocolate in it imparts the desired sweetness and the fat is derived from the chocolate compound which is not pure chocolate but has added vegetableย fats. Pure Couverture Chocolate has cocoa butter in it while Chocolate Compound is made from Cocoa, vegetable fat and sweeteners.

 

This recipe is adapted from Kruthi Bipin‘s Cookie Recipe in Home Bakers Guild , a famous baking group on Facebook. This was in my to do list since the day I saw this super easy recipe in the food group.

  • Do not bake the cookies at a high temperature as they have a tendency to burn.
  • If you are baking on a dark coloured cookie tray start eyeballing the cookies by 10 minutes.
