Oats N Almond Cookies

"Oats N Almond Cookies"
"Oats N Almond Cookies" is a very simple recipe for cookies, with just a few ingredients, a little bit of handwork and they are ready. We all are aware of the benefits of Oats and always try to incorporate the same in our diet, so why not use it for cookies, I have used whole wheat flour (Aata) instead of refined flour (Maida) for these cookies along with Oats for health reasons.  
The Almonds add nuttiness and an extra crunch to these cookies. The cookies are crunchy on the out side and quite chewy in the inside.


Ingredients

Oats - 1 cup
Whole wheat flour -1 cup
Sugar, powdered - 3/4th  cup
Cinnamon, powder - 1 tsp
Baking powder - 1tsp
Milk Powder - 2 tablespoon
Butter - 1/2 cups
Almonds, roughly chopped - 1/2 cup
Milk - 2 tablespoon

Method

Mix whole wheat flour and baking powder and pass through a sieve to ensure that the baking powder is mixed well.
In a mixing bowl place the flour and baking powder mix, add the oats, milk powder, sugar and cinnamon powder and mix well. Cut the butter into small cubes and add to the dry ingredients and mix well (with your hand or you could even use the food processor) until they start resembling a coarse crumble.




Add chopped Almonds to the crumble and mix well, add milk and form a dough.( The dough might be a little sticky because of the ingredients but don't worry.)




Wrap the dough in a cling film and place it in the refrigerator for an hour or so.


Pre heat the oven at 190 degree Celsius or 374 degree Fahrenheit and prepare the baking tray by rubbing it with butter / oil or any cooking spray and dusting it with dry flour.


Remove the dough from the refrigerator and divide it into 18 - 20 equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball and press with your palm to form disc approx. 1.5 inches in diameter and around 0.25 inches in height. Place the discs on the prepared baking dish and allow around 1.5 - 2 inches space between the disc as they will expand during baking.


Bake in preheated oven for 18 - 20 minutes. The cookies will be slightly brown and will have cracked edges.


Remove from oven and let them rest on wire rack until they cool. You could store these in airtight containers for a week.

Enjoy along with  tea or coffee.
