Eggless Sesame Oats Crisps

Eggless sesame oats crisps with tea

Today, I prepared eggless sesame oats crisps that were blissfully delicious. I love anything that has sesame seeds in them. You wouldn’t believe how quick they were to put together, right from combining the crisps mix to baking them. Less than 30 minutes. I made a small batch while preparing lunch, just before Nehal got back from school and prepared the rest at tea time. I tweaked the original recipe and added coarsely powdered toasted almonds for the extra nutty flavor. What I love about the recipe is, its eggless and calls for nutritious oats and calcium-rich sesame seeds.

Golden brown treats flecked with sesame seeds and toasted almond pieces, subtle in flavor, slightly nutty and crunchy. This recipe is definitely a keeper and a snack that is sure to be popular among kids!

Eggless Sesame Oats Crisp Recipe

Preparation: 10 mts, Baking: 16-18 mts

Makes approx 28-30 crisps



1 1/4 cup all purpose flour (maida)

2 1/4 tbsps unsalted butter

5 tbsps demerara sugar

1 1/2 tbsps golden syrup

3/4 cup oats

4 tbsps sesame seeds

1 tsp soda bicarbonate (add a tsp hot water and keep aside)

1 tbsp powdered almonds (roast almonds and coarsely pwd) (optional)

1 Over low heat, melt butter, demerara sugar and golden syrup until the sugar dissolves. Stir in oats, sesame seeds, pwd almonds and flour. Mix in the soda bicarbonate. The resultant dough will be sticky.
2 Pinch some dough (about a small lemon sized ball) and flatten with you finger onto greased cookie sheet. Using your fingers, spread or flatten out to form a thin round. Place crisps at a distance of 2 – 2 1/2 inches apart as they spread out a lot.
3 Bake in a pre-heated oven at 175 C for about 17-18 mts till the edges are slightly toasted or turn golden. Once baked, the crisp will be soft. After removing from oven, let it cool for 2-3 mts and then use a thin spatula to remove the crisps carefully onto a wire rack to cool. They will harden on cooling.
4 Repeat with remaining dough. Store in airtight container once completely cool.

    looks very tasty. what is that demarara sugar and golden syrup??? how can that be substituted??

    one more thing TOI page always showing 16oct08 posts. some blogger friends are not able to see anything recent. just 16oct 08 page.

    Demerara sugar is a type of raw cane sugar with a large grain that is brown in color. You can substitute it with light brown sugar. Golden syrup is made by boiling sugar cane juice till its takes a thick syrup form and golden in colour. You can substitute it with honey.
    I have an update on TOI in the above post, Bhawana. Please be patient as I try to resolve this issue.

    Lovely crisps… Looks great. Can normal sugar or brown sugar substitute demarara sugar?

    You can substitute with light brown sugar.

  • anudivya

    Hey Sailu, this looks awesome! And low on fat too… perfect. I am so making this. Will let you know how it went. For now, I am bookmarking it.
    Question… is it quick oats that you used?

    BTW, is there a technical glitch in TOI? It seemed to be stuck at Oct 16 for a couple of days, and no updates were visible. Just FYI. I bet you must have noticed by now.
    Let me also take this opportunity to let you know what a great tool TOI is… the ones I miss in my feed, I come here to check everyday. Truly great work Sailu. Keep it up girl!

    I used rolled oats. Look forward to your feedback. I have an update on TOI at the end of the post, Anudivya. Please be patient till I try to resolve this issue. And thank you for your encouraging appreciation. 🙂

    On the demerara sugar vs white sugar and brown sugar thing–if you really have to substitute, use light brown sugar. But demerara sugar is available all over the place. In the grocery store, it should be next to the granulated sugar–it might be called Sugar in the Raw. Or Whole Foods or any fancy grocery store will have it under its normal name.

    they look terrific….

    b) And i also read Golden syrup can be substituted with honey.. is it the same Quantity?
    c) is unsalted butter mandatory> Can i use white butter (unsalted)

    Pls do revert.. Looking forward to make this for my little one this weekend.. I seem to have all the other ingredients at home !!

    c) You can use white butter.

    These cookies are perfect for a snack or to go with a glass of milk…

    They look wonderful!

  • Hima

    Hi Sailu,

    I tried to make these oat crisps but not successful. They are chewy, not crisp.
    I followed exactly what you said here. But I ended up adding more water to make dough as the moisture from sugar and butter is not sufficient to form dough. I used whole oats.
    Do you have any idea what made them chewy?


  • manila

    Hi sailu,

    Simple and good recipe. I make oats and honey and nut cookies. I will try these sesame seeds also. The oats u have taken are the quick cooking oats, right??

  • Geetha

    Dear Sailu,

    I had the same problem as Hima did. I added water and some butter, to get the dough as you described you got it. And they turned out chewy too and not crisp. I was rather discouraged by the whole thing I didn’t want to venture farther with the Pappu Chekkalu. I really liked the ingredients you used. Please review the recipe and let us know what it was you did to get it crispy.

  • Roshni

    The cookies look good and the presentation is fabulous!

  • Usha

    Hi Sailu,
    I tried out your recipe with a few modifications. Used 1 cup maid and 1 cup oats. Also used honey and Dark Muscovado sugar as I had only these in the pantry. The cookies came out really well and crispy with a nice caramelish flavour. Thanks for the recipe.

  • Charlene

    Hi Sailu,

    I just stunbled across your blog here. These cookies look wonderful and healthy. I have the day off from work and so will try making these. Will let you know how they turned out. Wonderful blog!
