In today’s fast paced life we ended up eating junk food very often, and it happens more during the work hours when we feel small food cravings. Our body gets used to with this tasty, delicious and easy to buy junk foods which give us few extra pounds of weight gain each month. The downsides in the long run are heart diseases, cholesterol issues, obesity, diabetes, fatty liver to name a few. For healthy snacking Naturell’s RiteBite Max Protein snack is one of the best options to keep your calorie count low, they’re made with 7 different grains (Oats, Rice, Wheat, Corn, Soy, Gram and Ragi). These grains are not only nutrient rich but also provides good amount of protein to our body. And we all know that, Protein is the major building block of the human body. Its main job is to build and maintain tissue.
Other than plain eating these delicious snacks are great to make different food. They come in 3 different flavours- Max Protein Spanish Tomato, Max Protein Minty Chaat and Max Protein Cheese & Jalapeno. You can make fruit chaat or dahi chaat with them. Or they can be grinded into a fine powder and use them on salads. Our idea was to include these healthy snacks in the best possible ways to our every day foods. And my thought was to develop one such recipe with these snacks, so that the food can be stored for some day. I’ve made these savoury Spiral Cookies with wheat flour to keep our calories in check; they came out so good in taste that it was hard for us to stop at one. That pretty spiral design, which I made with 7 grain protein snacks, is the key factor of these cookies, while the crunches from roasted cumin adds a depth of flavor in it. These are great for any time munching, or you can enjoy them with tea/coffee.
They’re having a wide range of products like Protein Bars, Herbal Protein Bars, Healthy Snacking Bars, Protein Snacks etc. on their website https://naturellindia.com. You can buy RiteBite Max Protein products directly from there. Order online and experience healthy snacking.
Spiral Cookies made with 7 Grain Protein Snack
Yields: 16-17 cookies
For cookie dough
- Wheat flour- 1 cup
- Baking powder- ¼ tsp
- Unsalted butter- ½ cup (at room temperature)
- Salt- ½ tsp
- 2 packs of 7 Grain Protein Snack
- Olive oil- 2 tbsp
- Cumin seeds- 2 tsp
Dry roast cumin seeds in a frying pan until they turn a bit darker in color. Care should be taken not to burn them. Remove, keep aside.
Add protein snacks in a mixer/grinder, grind until powdered. Take it out in a bowl. Now add olive oil and roasted cumin seeds in the same bowl, mix well. Keep aside.
For cookie dough
Line a tray with cling film, keep aside. Mix flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl. Add butter in it, mix well using your fingers and make smooth cookie dough. Roll this cookie dough on the cling film lined tray in about ¼” thickness.
Now spread the protein snacks mixtures evenly on top of it (check video to see the steps). Start to roll gently from the vertical side. Wrap with cling film and keep refrigerated for 30 minutes.
Line a baking tray with parchment/butter paper. Preheat oven to 180 degree C. Take out the cookie log from refrigerator, cut slices using a sharp knife. Arrange them on the prepared baking tray (keep the cookies 1” apart from one another) and bake for 12-14 minutes or until light golden in color. The cookies will be soft after baking but they will be hardened when cool, so don’t worry about that. Let the cookies cool down for two to three minutes on the baking tray itself. Then shift them onto a cooling rack and leave there until they cool completely. Store the cookies in an airtight container.
