Crisp on the outside. Soft and chewy on the inside. The Eggless Millet Cookies are the perfect sweet treat for a health-conscious family. No egg, no maida, no white sugar. A healthier alternative to conventional cookies.


  • 1/2 cup millet flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 75 gms butter
  • 1/2 cup jaggery powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tbsp chilled milk


  • Sift together millet flour, whole wheat flour, and baking powder in a large bowl.
  • Add in chilled butter cut into small pieces. Rub in the butter to get a breadcrumb texture.
  • Next, add in the powdered jaggery and mix well.
  • Add in vanilla essence and a little chilled milk, just enough to knead the dough. Cover the dough and refrigerate for at least half an hour. Or in the freezer for 5 minutes if you are in a rush.
  • In the meantime, preheat the oven at 180°C.
  • Divide the dough into 10 equal portions and roll them into balls. Press down a bit. Grease the baking tray or line it with parchment paper. Place the cookie dough at least an inch apart. Press down with a fork.
  • Bake at 180°C or 350°F for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. The baking time varies based on the oven.
  • Once done, move them to a rack until they are completely cooled down and crisp. The Eggless Millet Cookies are ready to enjoy.



  • I have used pearl millet (bajra) for this recipe. You can use the millet flour of your choice.
  • You can use powdered sugar instead of jaggery. Adjust the sweetness as per your taste.
