Eggless Oats & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tuesday, August 19, 2014


I love cookies!!

I love them in all forms!!

Doesn't matter if i have not heard of any varieties in particular, i would still love them just by dreaming about them. During my childhood i wasn't much familiar with cookies. It was biscuits all the way. Hide & Seek and Bourbon were(are)my all time favorites. After moving to US, i realized i need to pay almost double or triple the amount to get them from nearby indian stores and also since my waist line was not refusing to budge after all the strenuous workouts that i was into,i decided it was high time to start baking my own healthier versions!! 

By the way did i say i love oats too?? They fill me up perfectly for breakfast with some milk,bananas,and walnuts. Of late i have been experimenting with over night cooked oats(not my thing).After many successful attempts of baking with oats flour in muffins and cakes, baking an oats cookie was in my to-do list for a very long time.

These cookies are very easy to make,they make for an excellent tea time hassle free snack and can also be grabbed for a go to breakfast.





Ingredients:

1. 1/2 cup Old fashioned rolled oats

2. 1 tsp baking soda

3.1 tsp pure vanilla extract

4. 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder

5. 4 tsps unsalted butter (or olive oil 1/4 cup)

6. 1/4 cup packed brown sugar (use any  sweetener as per your taste)

7. 1 tsp mixed spice powder/nutmeg /cinnamon

8. 1/4 cup all purpose flour

9. 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

10. 2 tsp Chocolate chips




Method:

Start by preheating your oven to 350 F. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminium foil. Cream butter & sugar till they are well combined. Add vanilla extract. Sieve together all purpose flour,whole wheat flour, baking soda,cocoa powder,spice mix. Mix along with oats and chocolate chips. Knead it like a dough. Make small balls out of it and flatten with palm. Bake them for 12-15 mins and allow it it cool for another 15 mins. I got 10 cookies out of these measurements.



I had no intention of writing this down, but as they turned out to be awesome i decided to share it,which is why i don't have pictures of the steps involved. Next time when i make these babies, pictures will follow along!!

Between..Rakesh just commented, " They look like parippu vadas" and he is almost dead!!!!
