WHOLE WHEAT COOKIES


WHOLE WHEAT COOKIES

Aatte ke Biscuit

Happy Mothers day to all mothers.


This post is dedicated to all mothers. We, women feel really special this day, when we not only get gifts and surprises but also a lot of love from our children. The best gift, God has given to women, is her children.


Two days ago when my grandson came from school, he was very exited and told me that he is the only one in his class who is making two cards on mothers day. I asked “why are you making two cards?”, he replied “one for my mom and one for you, because you are also my mom's mom”, I was really touched by the answer. I was actually emotional, then he gave me a big hug, what a great feeling I had at that time.


I love cookies, and I always try new types of cookies available in the shops here. Though I prefer healthy ones like wholewheat, but if I see nice ingredients on the packet, I buy them to test and try. My grandchildren also like chocolate cookies or chocolate chip cookies. These two are the main reasons, you will always find a variety of cookies in my pantry.


My love towards cookies has one more reason- I can not drink tea or coffee alone, I need something with it. Either cookies or some savoury snack, is a must for me with tea or coffee, I do not know whether this is good or a bad, but it is just a habit.


Whenever I get time I make cookies, because when they are homemade they are even better. The only thing I have to consider is that they should have chocolate chips or chocolate powder, so that my grandchildren can also enjoy.


This is the recipe of healthy cookies, because it is made with wholewheat flour with little butter and I have also added flax seeds.


RECIPE

INGREDIENTS


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup cooking oats (if possible, grind this to a flour)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter at room temperature.
  • 3 tbs flax seeds powder
  • 3 tbs Nesquick choc powder/1tbs coco powder
  • 3 tbs choc chips/buttons
  • 1tsp Vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder (optional)
  • 4 tbs milk
  • ½ tsp soda-bi-crab
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
METHOD
  • In a big bowl, take wholewheat flour and mix oats, then baking powder, soda-bi-crab, coco and cinnamon powder.
  • Now add sugar and mix well.
  • Add butter, milk, vanilla essence and flax seeds and mix well.
  • Now add chocolate buttons and make small balls and slightly flatten them.
  • Heat the oven on 175 degree C/360 F
  • Spread the cookies on parchment paper in a oven tray, they should be 2-3 cm apart.
  • Bake in a heated oven 10-15 minutes. 10 minutes for soft and 15 minutes for crunchy.
  • When cold put it in a jar. They can stay on the shelf for one month.

  17. These looks so delicious and I love the ingredients you've used. We never had white flour in the house when I was growing up, so everything was cooked with wholewheat flour. I love it, but as so many people aren't used to it I tend to bake with half and half these days. But these cookies are a perfect vehicle for it. I've not tried baking with ground flax seeds before, only whole ones in my bread. Great to get these ideas. Thanks for linking up to #WeShouldCocoa.
