Eggless Ragi & Chocolate Cookies

I was planning quite a long to make out some bakes mainly with two ingredients, the famous chocolate and the nutritious ragi flour, i tried this both ingredients as cookies yesterday as eggless version but not vegan...This cookies are really fantastic, healthy and kids friendly , best for their evening snacks with simple ingredients..Initially i wanted to prepare as savoury biscuits with ragi and chocolate, but its was completely weird na.. may be will try out next time to see how this two ingredients works out together to see how they will tastes out if they are prepared as savoury cookies..Personally this cookies tastes really prefect with some hot coffee or tea when served as snacks and everyone at home loved it, i prepared this ragi and chocolate cookies as small batch and instead of dropping with spoons, i prepared a swirl like cookies by using the round nozzle and pastry bag, which looks like a snail and my DH named this cookies as snail cookies..


1cup Ragi
1/2cup All purpose flour
2tbsp Dark chocolate powder
1/2cup Butter
3/4cup Powdered sugar
1/4cup Apple sauce
1tsp Vanilla essence
1/2tsp Baking powder
1/4tsp Baking soda

Beat the butter and sugar until they turns creamy, mix together the ragi flour, all purpose flour, dark chocolate powder with baking powder and baking soda...add gradually the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and also add the applesauce until they turns as soft but sticky dough...

Preheat the oven at 350F and line a baking sheet over a baking pan, take the dough in a pastry bag with round nozzle and drop over the lined baking sheet as swirl like cookie..finish the dough completely..arrange the baking tray in the middle rack and bake the cookies for 20-25minutes..

We enjoyed having them as warm cookies...

Hi Priya,
First time in your site and I love the sight of these swirly cookies.
I have a small question here - The applesauce you are using here, is it a substitute for egg or fat? I know you have used butter already, so Im guessing the applesauce is acting as an egg substitute in this recipe. Please correct me if Im wrong. Why all this fuss is because, I cannot procure applesauce here in Bangalore, India. And apples are out of season now, so I cannot even make some myself :(
If you could confirm what the applesauce is substituting, it'd be great. Also if it is substituting the egg, could you please tell me how many eggs (im guessing its one egg since its just 1/4th cup of applesauce). Sorry about such a long comment...its more like a long story! I'll await your reply.
Thanks a million in advance!

Cheers
Madhuri

Priya said... Reply To This Comment

Hi Madhuri...as u told absolutely i used applesauce as a substitute for eggs, yep u can use an egg to replace the apple sauce yaar, hope this helps..

Cook-curry Nook said... Reply To This Comment

Hi Priya, thanks so much for the quick response! I will def try out these cookies. I plan to use flax seeds as the egg substitute. I'll keep you posted on how they turn out.
Thanks a million, once again.
