Made using whole grains and no preservatives, here is our review of the cookies by Hey Grain.
Our reviews are research-based, and all trials and testings are conducted in-house over days and weeks. We have a strict no-free-sample policy to ensure our reviews are fair and impartial.
Cookies can be perfect with a cup of coffee or as a mid-day snack, or for when you want to have something sweet after a meal. With changing lifestyles and food choices, maida based cookies have taken a backseat, and cookies made using healthier ingredients like besan, oats, ragi, and jowar are being introduced regularly. We reviewed two Hey Grain Cookies – Besan & Chocolate Chip Cookies and Chocolate & Oats Cookies. Are these tasty? Let’s find out in our #FirstImpression.

#FirstImpression Of Hey Grain Cookies
Price and packaging – The cookies come in a see-through plastic container with a lid. The cookies are sealed with a pull-back metal cap which is easy to open. Both the cookies are priced at Rs 120/- each.
Hey Grain Besan & Chocolate Chip Cookies
Calories – 460 Kcal for 100 grams.
Net weight – 140 grams for Rs 120/-.
Ingredients – Organic besan, salt, gluten-free baking powder, baking soda, demerara sugar, milk, butter, choco chips. These cookies are baked in a non-gluten environment.
Appearance and aroma – The cookies are a light brown in color, and we could see a lot of chocolate chips scattered in the middle. The cookies were a little crumbly and our hands were coated in crumbs after handling them. The roasted besan aroma in the cookies is dominant and reminds you of a fresh besan barfee.
Taste – Besan is a very Indian ingredient and chocolate chips are a rather western concept. It’s like chalk and cheese. Surprisingly, the combination of besan and chocolate chips works brilliantly and these cookies are yummy! We did not expect them to taste nice together. The chocolate chips are added in abundance and not a single bite goes without you biting into some. The sugar levels are quite balanced and this cookie would taste great even with unsweetened milk or black coffee.
Apart from the fact that these cookies made a lot of crumbly mess while eating, the sweetness levels, quality of chocolate chips, and the besan flavor were all a win-win.
Hey Grain Chocolate & Oats Cookies
Calories – 460 Kcal for 100 grams.
Net weight – 150 grams for Rs 120/-.
Ingredients – Whole grain wheat flour, rolled oats, cocoa powder, choco chips, canola oil, milk, demerara sugar, salt and baking powder. May contain nuts.
Appearance and aroma – These cookies are a dark brown in color and we could see a lot of oats scattered throughout the cookies, The aroma is very dark-chocolatey. None of the pieces were broken.
Taste – These cookies were so hard, we couldn’t bite into it in one go. No jokes. We had to struggle to eat them. Flavor-wise also, these aren’t too nice and give out a very burnt-flour like taste. The sweetness levels are balanced but it doesn’t matter because the cookies did not taste nice.
We do not recommend the chocolate and oats cookies at all! People could make advertisements for toothpastes promoting strong teeth using these cookies. Yes, they were THAT hard!
The besan and chocolate chip cookies were tasty and did not disappoint. If you want to try a gluten free cookie, do give the ones by Hey Grain a try.

Our tasting session concluded that the Haldiram’s Nimbu Masala Namkeen was our top choice unanimously. Haldiram’s Aloo Bhujia is the tastiest one with classic flavors and Haldiram’s bhujia is perfect for those who love their namkeens spicy.
