EGGLESS OATS COOKIES
- 1 cup Quick cooking/ plain oats, ( saffola,kellogs,quaker etc )
- 1/3 cup Wheat flour
- 1/4 cup ( Cashew + Almonds) mix / any one
- 1/4 cup Honey
- 1 - 2 tsp curd
- 1/4 tsp Baking soda
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla essence/ pista essence
- Transfer Cashew and almonds to a mixer and make a coarse powder of it . Keep aside .
- Next take oats and grind into coarse powder, keep aside.
- In large bowl mix oats powder, nuts powder along with wheat flour, baking soda, honey, and essence. Mix well to combine all ingredients together. The mixture will be crumbly .
- To the crumbly mix , add a tsp or 2 curd to make a smooth dough .
- Cover the dough and keep in fridge for 45 minutes. this will make dough a bit hard and non sticky .
- After 45 mins , Preheat the oven at 180c for 10 minutes .
- Divide the dough to small lemon sized equal balls.
- Flatten each balls gently by using your palm.Arrange the cookies on the baking tray lined with parchment paper. Leave some space in between .
- Use your fork and press in the centre of each cookie to make an impression as shown in pic .
- Place the tray in the middle rack and bake the cookies at 180 c for 10 - 12 mins . After 10 -12 mins , take them out and reduce the temperature to 160 c and bake the cookies again for 3-5 minutes or till they are golden brown from sides as well bottom . This will make cookies crisper.
- Remove the cookies from the tray and let it cool completely.Initially they look soft when hot but after sometime , they will become crunchy .
- Store the cookies in an air tight container and relish !!! Stays good for minimum 6-7 days .
- Instead of honey you can use powdered sugar .
- If the dough doesn’t hold together, add extra 1 tsp curd to make smooth dough.
- You can use any essence for various flavours like vanilla , pineapple , pista , rose etc .
- Duration for which cookies has to be baked varies slightly and depends on your oven . For me it took 12 mins on 180 and 4 minutes at 160 c . So to avoid over baking , better keep an eye towards end .
