Healthy Homemade Oat and Multi-Seed Cookies

My husband and my daughter love cookies, biscuits or in short anything baked and with sugar. We avoid buying packaged biscuits and prefer homemade cookies. To a first timer, it might seem lot of work, but truly speaking it is not. I am not much of a cook, but these cookies if made in small batches don’t take either much time or skill. I usually make whole wheat or oat cookies. Earlier, I had shared the recipe of healthy whole wheat cookies. This time I got inspired by a very simple but healthy oat seed cookies recipe from Indy Power. Of course, I have tweaked the recipe a tiny bit.

We eat a lot of seeds every day. I have mentioned how I soak a combination of four seeds – pumpkin, watermelon, muskmelon and sunflower. So, when I came across this recipe that uses seeds, I knew I had to try it.

So here’s how my healthy oat seed biscuits recipe goes (12-14):

  • 200 gm of oats (I had a packet of Quaker Oats, so I used that)
  • 165-170 gm of mixed seeds (I used pumpkin, watermelon, muskmelon, sunflower and sesame. I used pumpkin because I wanted the green to pop out. You can use any 2 of them or more or use flax seeds, etc)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 80-85 gm palm jaggery
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp homemade peanut butter (Amul butter or white butter are fine. With unsalted white butter, add 1 tsp salt to the recipe)
  • 100 ml coconut oil (or any vegetable oil)

Healthy Homemade Oat and Multi-Seed Cookies

How to make healthy homemade multi-seed cookies?

  • Put the oats in the mixer jar and blend it into a fine flour.
  • Empty the contents into a big bowl.
  • Add the seeds, baking powder and salt if required to the bowl. And mix it well.
  • In a pan, add milk, palm jaggery, peanut butter and vanilla and put it on low flame. Keep on stirring till the sugar dissolves.
  • Add this sweet liquid to the bowl of dry mixture.
  • Add coconut oil.
  • Mix it well.
  • Pre-heat oven at 180°C for 10-15 mins.
  • Put a parchment paper on a baking tray.
  • Take some mixture into your balm and roll it into a ball. Place the roll on the sheet and with your fingers press it a little to flatten it into cookie shape.
  • Bake at 180°C for 12-15 mins depending on your oven.
  • Let them cool in the oven for 5 minutes before putting them on the wire rack to cool down.

You can enjoy these healthy oat seed cookies as a pre-workout meal or with cold milk, black coffee or liquor tea. Enjoy this wholesome super seed goodness!


  • You can add crushed almond and walnuts to the recipe too. I am thinking of trying seed and nut cookies very soon.
  • They can be excellent healthy snacks for kids. However, add seeds in less quantity if your children are picky.
