How to make Finger Millet cookies or Ragi Biscuit!  – Finger Millet aka Ragi Flour is a wonder food in India and lot other Asian countries but hardly known in the western countries. It is probably the most underrated “cereal” food. So, I decided I should go into a little more detail about what it bring to the table….literally..:-)   High levels of Calcium, Iron, Protein, Fiber, and gluten-free are the some of the goodness of Finger Millet and I am sure one of them is sure to make you buy it at your local Whole Foods store. I personally know lot of family members that have stayed on a Finger Millet diet to lose weight. Finger Millet could be enjoyed in different recipes like Dosa, Upma, Cakes, Halwa, and also Cookies. I am going to be posting all of those recipes this year, but here’s a sweet cookie recipe to start with.

Finger Millet CookiesApart from Finger Millet, there is yet another secret ingredient in this recipe. Its my home-made oats milk. I am sure you have noticed that I have switched to vegan recipes in my blog and I found this great recipe for Oats Milk from fellow blogger, Mel at her website at A Virtual Vegan. Not only it taste awesome, it also made a good substitute for milk in my cookie recipe. Finger Millet Cookie is just the start of a wonderful and healthy journey with Finger Millet.

  1. I love the way your cookies look! I’ve never tried millet flour but I bet I can find some on Amazon. Pinned and I can’t wait to try these!

  2. I’ve never heard of finger millet, you’ve peaked my curiosity. The cookies look lovely.

    1. Hi Purnima.
      whole wheat pastry flour is milled from soft white wheat. It has a lower protein content than regular whole wheat flour and it makes wonderfully tender whole grain baked goods.
      You can substitute with Maida too. Thank you!
