Ragi Chocolate Chip Cookies

My search for healthy snacks led me to this recipe of Ragi Chocolate Chip Cookies. I ordered a few “healthy” snacks online and let’s 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 Ragi Chocolate Chip 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 Healthy Oat & Raisin Cookies and  Healthy Buckwheat Cookies.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 Ragi Chocolate Chip Cookies 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.

  • ¼ cup Jaggery/brown sugar/raw sugar
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • ½ tsp Vanilla essence
  • Chilled Milk as required.(Add in 1 tbsp increments)
  1. Combine the flours,baking powder and sugar.
  2. Add vanilla essence to this mixture.
  3. Rub the butter into the flour mixture.Use your fingers and thumb and rub the butter and flour in between your fingers.
  4. Continue doing so till the butter is almost incorporated coarsely into the flour.It should look clumpy.
  5. Add milk and chocolate chips knead the butter-flour mixture.Do not over knead but just combine everything together.
  6. Cover in cling wrap or in a bowl with a lid.Keep in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Using a spoon the mixture on a baking tray or sheet.
  8. Bake at preheated oven for 12 minutes at 180 degrees C.
if the dough isn't coming together, which can happen because Ragi is gluten free and non sticky, add a little more whole wheat flour and a few drops more of milk so that the dough comes together better.
