Ragi Chocolate Chip Cookies

My search for healthy snacks led me to this recipe. I ordered a few snacks online and lets just say it was a giant disappointment!When I placed the order I expected a box of ragi cookies but what I received was two cookies dipped in chocolate. It sure did taste good and it was labeled as healthy so even though I wasn’t happy with the quantity I was okay with it overall….Till I read the ingredients.

It did have ragi but it also had refined flour and refined sugar so I don’t know why it was tagged as “healthy”. That’s when I decided to make my own cookies. I adapted Sanjeev Kapoor’s ragi biscuit recipe with some changes and I really loved them.

These cookies were my life savior along with my oat peanut butter chocolate bars(I will post that recipe soon).I recently travelled with baby V alone for the first time to Pune and in the whole packing and running to catch the flight I forgot to eat breakfast and these cookies literally saved me a ton of agony I would have been in for skipping breakfast. These also were the first thing I ate when I came back home after a week and they tasted better than they did fresh.The moral here being that you can store these for at least 10 days(tried and tested!).

I halved the sugar and replaced it with jaggery or raw sugar. This recipe can be easily tweaked to suit babies and kids.
