Jowar cookies - vegan and gluten-free chocolate cookies recipe with step by step pictures
Millet chocolate cookies are crunchy chocolate cookies made with jowar atta (Sorghum flour). This is another healthy cookie recipe that is vegan, gluten-free and made without xanthan gum or any edible starches.
At home, we try to eat all kinds of millet in all different forms. As I still cannot make perfect millet rotis, I usually use millets in idly or dosa batter. I will share those recipes soon. Other than that, I usually cook millet like rice and use as rice replacements in the recipes.
Though millets are healthy, they might hinder thyroid functionality. To reduce its effect, I try to use soaked and sprouted millets as often as possible. In today's recipe, I used sprouted jowar flour (and these days, sprouted flours as easily available in the market).

Variations to this jowar chocolate cookies recipe:
- In this recipe, I have used raw cane sugar along with coconut sugar. But you can use coconut sugar alone or powdered jaggery also works fine. Coconut sugar complements chocolate so I prefer coconut sugar in this recipe.
- Use any millet flour or mixed millet flour instead of Sorghum flour in this recipe.
- As I want to make this recipe vegan-friendly, I used almond butter. Other kinds of nut butter or dairy butter also suit well in this recipe.
- Though I used coconut oil in this recipe, one cannot find it out. I prefer coconut oil as a butter replacement in baking cakes and cookies as it has a high smoking point.

Millet chocolate cookies recipe:
Millet chocolate cookies
- 6 tablespoon Sorghum flour Jowar flour
- 2 tablespoon coconut sugar
- 1 tablespoon raw sugar
- 2 tablespoon almond butter
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon cacao powder
- 1 tablespoon water
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- Take all ingredients except water in a mixing bowl.
- Mix everything well and try to form a dough. If required add water to make a dough. I used 1 tablespoon water. Try not adding too much water and also don't over-knead the dough.
- Divide the dough into equal balls and make flat cookies (around half-inch thickness) by pressing in between your hands. I have topped few cookies with roughly chopped pistachios.
- Bake the cookies for 15 minutes at 180 degrees C. Once the cookies are cooled down, store it in an airtight box.
- Baking time depends on cookies thickness and oven as well.
- So check them once at around 10 - 12 minutes, if the edges turn brown then they are done.

Thank you so much Saraswathi 🙂 This event has been great learning experience for me 🙂
Can we use coconut butter instead of coconut oil?what about date paste or dry date powder instead of sugar?does it go well with chocolate?
You can use coconut butter but I never used dates paste and I am not sure how it works. But you can easily replace sugar with dates powder. Yes, dates go very well with chocolate.
