Healthy Digestive Biscuit Recipe (Oats, Almond, and Sesame): Easy to make and healthy digestive biscuits or cookies made using oats, almonds, and sesame seeds.
They are absolutely delicious and can be served with a hot beverage or makes a healthy snack.
Happy Monday Everyone and I’m here with an easy Healthy Digestive Biscuit Recipe (Oats, Almond, and Sesame) to share with all of you.
As I’ve mentioned a couple of times in my previous posts that I’m a big-time snacker hence, always trying to make a healthier or easier recipe for a quick bite.
These digestive biscuits are hands down my favorite tea/coffee companion.
I always have a batch ready at home and sometimes you might even find them in my bag especially if I’m running an errand or going shopping….do provide some serious energy for shopping 😉
Growing up in India, most of the household followed a simple to elaborate tea-time ritual for an afternoon or evening tea.
It was either a couple of ladies sitting together and enjoying a relaxing cup of tea with these biscuits or it was the whole family sitting in the evening discussing the day over a cup of hot tea.
No matter which scenario, there were two things common – tea and this Healthy Digestive Biscuit.
If it was the evening tea, you might even find petite veggie sandwiches and some light savory mix which we call ‘namkeen’. Go anywhere in India and you can find this setting.
Although as a child, I was never allowed tea or coffee but these teatime snacks were my favorite, especially when mom made these Healthy Digestive Biscuit Recipe.
Also, that time, ovens were not that common in every home, so some of them had these clay pot ovens made in some nook of the open verandah or even rooftop and the whole house would smell like a bakery.
Trust me, the biscuits made in clay-pot had even a richer aroma cause of that earthy feel.
Now, they are called ‘Digestive Biscuits/Cookies’ because of the main ingredients like whole wheat flour, oats and seeds, that helps in digestion or as we call it ‘gut health’.
The recipe that I’m sharing today, has been made as is since last 20 years or so and the only thing that I’ve added more are ingredients like chia seeds and oats.
Also, at times, I do eat these biscuits/cookies with a fruit-flavored yogurt, sprinkled with lemon zest and trust me it tastes absolutely delicious.
So, go ahead and make these Healthy Digestive Biscuit Recipe and try them with your favorite hot beverage or as it.
