Multi Grain Cookies/ Biscuits

I remember the time when I was expecting and the way I used to be so careful about what all I was eating. My hit list always had multi-grain biscuits and my bag used to be stuffed with them, especially at times when I traveled. I'm an amateur when it comes to baking, and in this run I keep trying everything new, so of course it had to be multi grain cookies some day and that day finally came. The cookies came out really well, and here I am with the recipe.


Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Baking Time: 12 minutes

Health Meter:
The name speaks for itself: It's a healthy amalgamation of Wheat Flour (Aata), Ragi Flour, Rice Flour, Corn Flour, Gram Flour, and Sooji/Rava. All purpose flour/maida is the base for most of the biscuits available in the market, but with the changing time and trend, other grains are taking over owing to their goodness and better calorie and nutrition structure. You'll simply love these cookies, just the way I did. :)

1. Wheat Flour/ Aata: 1/2 cup
2. All Purpose Flour/ Maida: 1/4 cup
3. Sooji/ Rava: 1/4 cup
4. Makki Ka Aata (Corn Flour): 2 tbs
5. Rice Flour: 2 tbs
6. Gram Flour: 2 tbs
7. Ragi Flour: 2 tbs
8. Milk Powder: 2 tbs
9. Finely grated coconut: 1/4 cup
10. Cardamom Powder: 1/4 tsp
11. A dash of salt
12. Butter/ Ghee (Melted) : 1/2 cup
13. Baking Soda: a pinch
14. Baking Powder: 1 tsp
15. Powdered Sugar: 3/4 cup

  1. Grease the baking tray and keep it aside.
  2. Pre-heat the oven on 160 degrees Celsius for 5 minutes.
  3. Sieve the flour and mix all the above ingredients forming a soft dough. 
  4. Now take a small part of it and make a round ball. Flatten it between the palms of your hands and keep placing on the baking tray.
  5. Keep a gap of 2 cms after each while placing them.
  6. Bake on 160 degrees Celsius for 12 minutes. You'll see the cookies swelling and emitting an aromatic flavor after a while.
  7. Once they are baked, transfer them on a cooling rack and wait for your turn to just grab them.


  1. If you are worried about the butter/ghee part, just change it with Canola Oil/ Sun Flower Oil which is Cholesterol free, but the taste will differ for sure. 
  2. You could also add almonds or other dry fruits as per your wish.
  3. These can be stored in an air-tight container for 4-5 days. 


  1. I love baked goodies, esp. home-made ones; this one is just so healthy.

  2. Perfectly baked, these look so delicious.
