Cookies are a must in our house. For mid morning and evening tea time , kids need something to munch . So I bake cookies on regular basis. Cookies made at home are buttery, so delicious, melts in mouth and healthy as well. I just love experimenting cookies and cakes with different ingredients. Nankhatai is generally made with desi ghee, gram flour, maida and sugar. I have tried a gluten free version of nankhatai with freshly ground almonds. I tried making it without baking powder or baking soda. Through these cookies, nuts too are consumed by my kids. I have used coconut sugar in this cookie for a change. So do try this gluten free nutty nankhatais for your family and enjoy it . Happy baking!
