Easy Atta Cookies Recipe - Eggless Whole Wheat Cookies Recipe

I am telling you this is one of the easiest cookies you will ever make. It has no butter and no eggs and it is made with whole wheat flour. So it is pretty healthy too.

This is such a easy recipe, you need a handful of ingredients which you might already have on hand. When the cookies are baked it cracks on top and gives a nice crispy crust and a soft interior..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Baking Time : 15 mins
Makes : 6 cookies


Whole Wheat Flour / Atta - 1/2 cup / 60 grams
Sugar - 1/2 cup  Powdered (powder first then measure it)
Baking Soda / Cooking Soda - 1/4 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Vanilla Essence - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1/4 cup / 60 ml
Milk - 2 to 3 tsp
Cherry for topping

Preheat oven to 180 degree C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.

Take oil, sugar, vanilla in a bowl and mix well.

Now add in flour, baking soda, salt and mix well.

IF the mix looks too crumbly, add in spoonful of milk in and knead it well to a dough.

Take small portion and roll it out and flatten it out. Place a cherry on top.

Arrange it on a baking tray and bake for 10 to 12 mins depending on the size of the cookies.

Remove it from oven and cool it down for 10 mins.

  1. i made this cookies two days back.. the taste was yum.. !! but it was so hard and lil chewy inside.. can u tell me wer i went wrong..

  2. Just made these... but its a total fail... they went totally flat. Too much sugar and too much oil. I can even taste the baking soda. Are you sure your measurement are accurate?

    1. Yes it is right. I think u must have added too much baking soda and over baked it.

  3. Yes, even it is a failure for me also. The cookies went flat and too much sugar and oil.

  4. just made these cookies. turned out nice but I think next time I'll be adding a little less sugar

  5. Too much quantity of sugar.... I think it shud be 1/4 cup.. Just a suggestion

  6. you are right Bernice, the measurement is wrong. If one cup is 240 ml then half cup should be 120 no 60. Please correct your measurement in your recipe.

  7. The recipe is awesome. Easy and quick to make.
    The cookies turned out perfect, family loves it.

  8. I was looking for healthy atta cookies and found this one amongst a couple. Your instructions looked clear and the recipe sounded simple for someone like me who is making cookies for the first time, that too in a microwave! So.. I went with this one.. I didn't measure the ghee(instead of oil I wanted to use ghee) and initially the dough was not binding so added some more and made them. I wasn't sure how long to leave them to bake in the microwave in convection mode so just sat and stared.. it took almost 15+ min and when I felt they were browning, I stopped and took them out. left them out for 10 min as you recommend and voila! They turned out to be the perfect cookies.. crispy and fluffy! TOTALLY loved them! They are slightly sweeter than what I usually have but I never mind that :D Thanks for this awesome and simple recipe with such detailed steps and photos, it's really helpful even for someone like me.. who doesn't know any cooking! :)
    Please do post more wheat cookie recipes that we can make in the Microwave convection mode! :D Thank you once again! YUMMY Tummy indeed! :)

  9. I made these cookies today the taste was good but the cookies turned flat n was too oily pls tell what went wrong n you didnot write how much time the oven should be preheated I preheated for 5min on 180d

  10. Hi Arthi,I don't having baking trays like u showed in the pic.Can i use a rectangular shaped glass bowl or pirex plate..will it come out well..Sorry if i am asking foolish questions.I am totally new to cooking

  11. Hi Arthi I could n't wait for ur reply..Just tried it out in Glass tray..It came out well..But the duration was little long took around 30 mins.Still waited patiemntly.Also I used Olive oil and Kalkandam(sugar crystals-powdered) instead of our normal sugar.Turned out to be a healthy cookie :).Thank u so much for the recipie

  12. One more doubt..Y should we add salt.I am very bad in putting salt..When I tried the salt was little above.should we mandatorily add the salt

    1. salt increases the taste and balances. u can skip that too
