Eggless Honey Walnut Cookies

One evening when i was browsing, i saw lots of baked recipes posted in blogs. I realized that i haven't baked anything for the past few months. I was so energized and wanted to bake something instantly. I was inspired so much. i headed into the pantry and looked for the ingredients and found out that i was missing the key ingredient " All purpose flour and Butter". I was so much pissed. But i didn't leave my  inspiration, i browsed again for a cookie recipe which can be made with wheat flour and oil. Finally i hoped into a blog and took the recipe. I substituted the regular flour to wheat flour and baked the cookie.

With my fingers crossed i took my first bite. OMG it was amazing. Since this cookie had honey in it, it turned out chewy and soft. It was a total hit at my home. Since it has no butter, you can have it without any guilty. I know you would be very eager in baking these, so here you go to the recipe.

I baked few cookie types for the past few weaks from this blog for my sons snak box..
i saw it got burnt quikly n we shd control our desire to "make it fully cooked"
It may look raw but in 12-15 mins they got cooked n though they look
soft they vl get the actual crunchy cookie texture soon.. u can use
aluminium foil under n up if u want to cook it realy long.. but thats not needy..

Hi Aarthi,

Can i bake this without baking soda?

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi Aarthi,

Cookie looks great. But, I just want to give you some info about using honey in baking which you have used in this recipe.
Honey should never be cooked/ heated (Many of us know this but still use it for cooking just for its taste & texture and thinking it is better than sugar). Ofcourse, honey is better than sugar but not cooked honey. Using honey in baking is quite popular but cooked honey is toxic. It is not an immediate poison but gets stored in the body as toxins(undigested material) and becomes root cause for all health issues. For a quick reference, you can go through this link to know what happens when you cook honey.


If you would like to avoid sugar, try to get natural sweetness from pureed dates, sucanat(Sugar Cane Natural), jaggery, etc.

Eat healthy and be happy :)

@Anonymousbaking is must since it gives the cookie its texture
