Who doesn't enjoy desserts? It's hard to resist! However, if like me, you too watch not just your own calorie intake but also mind the unhealthy ingredients for the sake of your child's health, then you must read on...
Every time someone opens a packet of Ammonia-laced cookies or offers a plateful of brownies to me or my child, I don't feel repulsive, but instead think of ways to amp up its nutritional offerings. And then I park myself in the kitchen to create a healthier version of that dessert.
So, the other day when my child was offered a maida brownie that had zero health benefits (and he did politely refuse though), you know what I did to cheer him up? I made oats jaggery and almond brownies at home. Low in sugar and nutritionally-dense too. With perfect crisp crackly tops and chewy centers, these brownies hit all the right notes. This fudgy and delicious brownie recipe comes together in one bowl in just a few minutes!
Did you ever think how could something with oats taste decadent? Well! This healthy snack for kids (and adults) makes use of oatmeal and the yummy brownie also gets a distinct texture, all thanks to oats- a single grain food that is easy on your baby's digestive system.
Rich in calcium, phosphorous, iron, and other minerals, jaggery powder is an immunity-boosting food. The calorific value of jaggery from cane sugar is 383 kcal and from sesame seeds is 563 kcal for 100 grams.
