Ragi Banana cookies

by Shivangi Singh

Being mother of a 11 month old child, I keep experimenting with food that is healthy and tasty for my LO. Thus came up with these nutritious cookies. These are baking soda, baking powder and sugar free, making them a great choice for babies & infants. Banana is favourite flavor for the kids, coconut gives its own crunch and the hero of the dish, Ragi, is a wonder grain that  moms love to include in their diets.

  • 150 gm soft butter
  • 1 banana (2 can be used too)
