Eggless Baking

Eggless Wholewheat Custard Powder Coconut Cookies | Day 6 of Baking Marathon

Sometimes, there comes along
a recipe which you want to make, but due to some mental hangups you dont make
them : be it for health, family preferences, low calorie, egg based etc.
Cookies n biscuits fall into that category : I love gorging virtually on these
goodies, but perhaps (read almost) due to the high butter and refined flour I
usually give these recipes a skip. 


Till I started clearing my
bookmarks for the baking marathon and saw Aarti’s recipe.
Not only is it eggless, it also was wholewheat and no butter. Guess I couldnt
wait any longer… Made some minor changes, and it was a super hit. Generally,
sweet bakes are not preferred at home, but these were very well received. Thank
you, Aarti. I am sure I shall keep making this. 


Sending this to all the
action at Baking Marathon – Fire up your oven. We are on Day 6 today and hope
you are enjoying the series till now…

What you need:

  • Wholewheat flour – 1.25 cups
  • Custard Powder – 3 TBSP (about ¼
  • Oil (I used canola) – 1/3 cup
  • Dessicated Coconut – 3 TBSP
  • Vanilla Essence – ½ TBSP
  • Sugar – ½ cup (I used about 1/3
    cup of powdered brown sugar)
  • Salt – a pinch
  • Baking soda – ¼ tsp
  • Baking powder – about ¾ tsp
  • Milk – needed for binding (I didn’t



  1. Sieve the dry ingredients :
    Wholewheat flour, custard powder, salt, baking soda, baking powder. To this add
    dessicated coconut and mix well.
  2. Add the powdered brown sugar (I
    used brown sugar cubes and powdered). Now add the oil and vanilla essence and
    bring it to a smooth dough (don’t knead)
  3. If its too try, add a tbsp of
    milk, and bind it (I didn’t use milk). Preheat the oven to 165 deg C . Rest the
    dough for 5 mins, covered.
  4. Make small roundels of the dough
    and flatten it with fork, place on lined baking tray. Use the rest of the dough
    to get similar cookies.
  5. Bake for 12-15 mins (mine was done
    at 14 mins) or when they start to crinkle and done at the edges.
  6. They will remain slightly soft
    when taken out and harden within 10 mins on a cooling rack.
  7. Store in a airtight container once
    completely cooled and serve with milk.

    They sound yum though I am not able to recall seeing custard powder cookies on shelves in American stores. Have to check carefully next time in stores.

  2. MySpicyKitchen

    I like cookies and can't stop munching on them all day. I have seen so many custard powder cookies on the net but yet to bake. These cookies look yummy and even the pics are great.

  3. Cookies with wholewheat turn out fine Kalyani, You can try the various oatmeal versions. But I too stay away from them, because I feel the work is a lot more for cookies.

  4. Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen
