eggless orange crinckle cookies recipe, eggless orange cookies recipe

these eggless cookies have a light orange flavor and taste. also they have a moist and soft texture. they are not crisp or crumbly or chewy. i had made these crinkle cookies some months back, a few days before the new year and the recipe was in drafts from then.

usually i prepare cookies with whole wheat flour or a combo of whole wheat flour + all purpose flour and gram flour/besan. these cookies too have gram flour in them. fresh orange juice is added here. but even ready orange juice works well.

the orange cookies recipe is simple and easy. i have replaced butter with olive oil. you can even make the cookies with butter. butter will give a different texture and taste than olive oil.

these eggless orange cookies go very well as a sweet treat with evening tea or coffee.

  1. Hi Dassana,

    Can I use butter instead of olive oil? not sure if my family would like the smell of olive oil in cookies..

  2. Hi there!

    You have a fabulous blog ! Couldn’t get better ❤

    I tried the Orange Crinkle cookies over last weekend. It seemed a little chewy however it tasted good. I baked it at the temperature you recommended (200 deg) however the base of cookies kind of browned a bit and the top wasn’t getting baked at all . Finally I changed it to the toast mode and somehow it looked perfect.I am using the 45 ltr Bajaj OTG. Is it supposed to be less sweet? Can I add more sugar to this recipe?

    • Thanks Amentha. For cookies keep the pan in the center rack. You can use both the top and bottom heating elements on. Sweetness will depend upon the sweetness of orange juice. If the orange juice is tangy and less sweet then you can always add more sugar.

  3. Hi thanks a lot for healthy recipe. i made it yesterday and it came out good but with too much taste of besan. Any suggestion please?
    thanks again – Jigna

    • welcome jigna. the besan taste is not so much felt in the cookies. wondering why you felt the too much besan taste. did you use the correct measuring cup, for the besan. also if cookies are baked well, you will get a faint but aromatic roasted besan taste.

  4. Can we store this kind of cookie for a longer period of time, say for a month ? The recipie looks amazing.. just wanted to know if I could make it n leep it for longer time

  5. Awsm cookies.. I baked it in microwave convection oven for 22 minutes n tested by your fingerprint method n there wasn’t any print but I want to know the texture inside will be soft n grainy or it should be crisp???

  6. Hi, love your recipe. But I want to make them as a Christmas gift.will it be better if i use maida instead of wholewheat flour. Or combination of both?
