Eggless Easter biscuits recipe – with easter around the corner, I have three recipes coming for all of you. All of them are eggless and healthy. Two are baked recipes and one is an easter specialty. This is the first one.

I had also made a mango blueberry cake, but it turned out to be a disaster. Instead of cake, it became a pudding 🙁 but my love for baking does not deter me from trying new and creative recipes in spite of so many disasters.

In fact the preparation of making these Easter biscuits were almost a disaster in the beginning. I was like all the semolina is wasted now. The oil became too much.

A creative thought and I quickly added whole wheat flour to save the mess that was happening. Happily, I baked and we had the most delicious and aromatic biscuits. The biscuits had beautiful cracks on them and yet were holding themselves without falling apart or breaking.


The best part is these biscuits do not have butter in them And also they are eggless. I have loosely adapted this recipe from the book “festival cookbook’ by Vimla Patil.

Secondly, as an egg substitute, i have added flaxseed powder. this biscuit dough is a not a smooth pliable dough, due to the presence of semolina. When you make the biscuits there will be cracks and they are natural.


Once baked, the outside texture is crisp. the inside is soft and not all hard or crisp. You can make these and then store them in an airtight container. They can also be wrapped beautifully and gifted to your family, friends and relatives. The recipe can be easily doubled or tripled. You can serve them as a tea time snack with Masala chai or filter coffee or ginger tea.

The original recipe has some raisins added to the dough. But I prefer just one taste in sweet dishes and hence have not added the raisins.

  1. Hi Dassana

    I have tried your recipes of cookies and they are amazing every single time!!! Thanks for the great recipes…
    Regarding this recipe…can I use chia seeds instead of flax? Waiting to try this recipe!!! ????

    1. would not suggest to add lapsi rava. however, you can grind the lapsi rava in a dry grinder till you get the fine rava like consistency and then add.

    1. niraj, butter cookies recipe is already posted. will try to post other recipes as well.

  2. Hie dear… I have a query regarding this recipe.. I m not aware of flax seed powder.. Neither I can get it here.. Can I substitute it with egg? If yes then how many?
