ChaywanprashCookies_Featured3

This winter I had made Chyawanprash which is an Ayurvedic Indian Gooseberry or Amla Herb Jam consumed specially during winters to boost immunity and promote longevity. I had made a huge batch made for my small family. However, now that the winters have come to an end I see a small bottle lying unnoticed. I decided to play brave and tried to experiment by adding them to the cookie dough and roll them into cookies. I had seen this recipe a while back on the web however it was sketchy and contained eggs!! Who adds eggs to Ayurvedic Recipe???.. its Blasphemy!

I combined the Chyawanprash with Whole whet Flour and also added ginger powder or saunth to it. The cookies came out amazingly crisp with goodness of Chyawanprash. Jaggery powder or Brown Sugar imparted a fabulous texture to it and also a kind of  soothing earthiness. I am taking these for my Mother in Law coming week as she follows Ayurveda, I am sure she will love it. If you too have Chyawanprash lying unattended, bake these cookies and surprise everyone by putting it to right use.

Directions:

 1.  In a small bowl add flax meal and add water and let it sit for 5-7 minutes until it turns gelatinous. Learn to make Flax meal here.

9. Preheat your oven to 180 degree Celsius and Line your baking tray with Oddy Uniwrap Parchment Paper because it makes your cookies slide off from the tray without sticking to the bottom and also it makes cleaning super easy.
