This post is going to be a part of #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is #cookies. My contribution is this super yummy and healthy chocolate crinkle cookies.

I have always used all purpose flour/maida in Chocolate crinkle cookies. But this time tried to make a healthy version. Super happy with the taste. Perfect soft fudgy inside and crisp outside. Coffee, chocolate and vanilla gives the cookies a lovely aroma.

You can make it with only all purpose flour/maida too.

Whole wheat flour or atta – 1/2 cup

Ragi or finger millet flour – 1/2 cup

Powered sugar – 1/2 cup

Butter – 1/4 cup

Cocoa powder – 4 tablespoon

Curd – slightly less than 1/4 cup

Vanilla essence – 1 teaspoon

Instant coffee powder – 1/2 teaspoon

Baking powder – 1 teaspoon

Powered sugar for coating

Method 


Sieve whole wheat flour, ragi/finger millet flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and coffee.

Cream butter and sugar. Mix well and add vanilla essence and curd. Beat well. Now add all the dry ingredients in it. Combine everything with your hand. Make a smooth dough.

The dough  will be smooth and sticky. Cover and keep in refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours or overnight.

It will be stiff when chilled.

Preheat the oven at 180° for 10 minutes.

Spread some powdered sugar on a plate. Make small balls out of the dough. Roll it on the powdered sugar. Press gently.

Place the balls on a baking tray 1 inch apart.

Bake in preheated oven at 180° for 10 – 12 minutes or until the edges becomes crisp and soft in the middle.

If overbake it will be hard and crisp not fudgy inside. But I like both crisp and fudgy 😀

Let the cookies cool down completely before serving.
