When comes to health at times we are careless and eat whatever available with ease, but when we want to give it to our little ones we think twice before giving them.
After becoming mommy, my search was on, for what best I can include in her diet that gives taste and health benefits too.
Sharing my first baked healthy cookies recipe.
1 cup quick cooking rolled oats
3/4 Th cup whole-wheat flour
3/4 Th cup powdered sugar ( if you prefer more sweet can add 1 cup, and if you want to go more healthy replace sugar by honey )
1/2 cup butter at room temperature
1/2 cup roughly chopped raisin and almonds
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Pinch of salt if you are taking unsalted butter.
Shift whole wheat flour, oats, and salt.
Add sugar and butter in another bowl whisk well till light and fluffy.
Add vanilla essence and mix well.
Add dry ingredients raisins and almonds to whisked butter and sugar and mix.
Bind together to form a dough.
If the mix is dry add 1 or 2 tbsp milk and make dough( if you are replacing sugar with honey skip milk part ).
Make small balls from dough depending on size of cookie you want to make and press slightly.
Preheat microwave/oven at 180°C.
Arrange the balls on parchment paper in a greased tray.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until edges turn slight brown.
Be careful cookies would be soft at this time, carefully take out and let them cool on wire rack.
Once cooled they will turn crispy, store in airtight container and enjoy munching 😄
