healthy-digestive-biscuit-recipeHappy 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 😉 Healthy Digestive Biscuit Recipe (Oats, Almond and Sesame)Growing up in India, most of the household followed a simple to elaborate tea-time ritual for an afternoon or evening tea. I was either 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 these biscuits. 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 (Oats, Almond, and Sesame)’. 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. oats-digestive-biscuit-recipe-healthyNow, 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 (Oats, Almond, and Sesame)‘ and try them with your favorite hot beverage or as it. eggless-digestive-biscuit-recipe

1/2 Tsp Baking Soda

4 Tbsp Olive Oil

4 Tbsp Milk

4 Tbsp Ground Almond

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together flours, sugar and baking soda.

    I think I should start filling my cookie jar with healthy stuff like these instead of the junk I usually fill it with! :P

    I love biscuit cookies like this! They remind me of a version that my mom used to make when I was a kid. I'd love to enjoy a few of these with a cup of afternoon tea.

    In Canada, we can get Digestive Cookies directly from our grocer, but I've never seen a homemade version of it. I'm intrigued! I'll certainly give this one a try, because we love any cookie/cracker made with oats!

      Thanks Byron. I love making them at home as they just remind me so much of my childhood ;) We do get them at local Indian stores n others too...but homemade are just so much more special at times.

    These digestive cookies look really good and your suggestion of serving them with yogurt and lemon zest sounds excellent. It's like taking a cookie and turning it into a fancy dessert. Oh, and you are not using eggs in the recipe. I don't have dietary restrictions but I always like finding recipes that can be served to someone who doesn't eat eggs.

    Yum! I've never seen a recipe for homemade digestives before. I always just sort of thought of them as the cookies you always get from the shops. These look incredible!

    Baking in clay pots sounds so exotic these days ... but I'm sure the ladies you knew didn't think of themselves as exotic. I love having a little something to nibble on while having a cup of tea. I'll be giving these a try.

      Thanks Noel. I can so imagine 'clay-pot' ovens as exotic but they were just so normal or regular stuff to have at that time :)

    I love the idea that the cookies are called biscuits. And having digestive ones make me laugh sometimes. Is it because most people want to eat a sweet after dinner or because the health benefits really do help digestion? I can't wait to try these and keep a batch in my purse while I am doing errands too. So much better than a sticky granola bar!

      Hey Jennifer, for me, it's more of a teatime or snack biscuit n being a big snacker, I totally love the health benefits that come along ;) They're definitely a saviour on my shopping days

    The first time I ever had a digestive biscuit was when I traveled to London a couple years ago. I thought they were going to be weird, just from the name . But BOY was I wrong! Pinning this for future reference :)

    I LOVE Digestives!!! I can' never remember why they're called Digestive biscuits - do you know? I hated them growing up (too healthy), but love them as an adult. These look SUPER good.
