Oatmeal !!! Are they only made for a boring breakfast Porridge? I asked this question to a few of my friends and all of them nodded “Yup, only porridge”. But hey wait! Think again, oats can be made into something more delicious than just a porridge. There are many things we can combine oats with and make some nice tasty recipe and I will be sharing most of them, but today I want to talk about a chewy Oatmeal Cookie recipe.
When I saw the list of ingredients for this recipe, I was like “wow… No Maida (all purpose flour)… No rising agents… hmmm… cookies with just oats and wheat flour”. Immediately it was added to my healthy treats wish list and a surprise to all my friends who got bored to eat oats in only one way.
It is one of the easiest cookie recipes I’ve baked so far… yummy and addictive. It is such an easy cookie recipe that you can make the cookies within a few minutes. Push it into the oven and relax… your cookies are done in just 20 mins. Isn’t that cool?
I loved the crunchy texture with dried the fruits coming in middle of each bite. This is an awesome healthy cookie… loads of flavor and a unique texture in each bite.
Even though I thought the 20 minute total baking time is not too much, but still I found a way to reduce the total baking time by 5 mins to make it just around 15 mins overall. I used the 2-tray method, and now… with the 5 mins that I had saved on this recipe… this was just perfect.
The reduced time can also be just because of my oven perhaps… so do try your first batch with the shorter time first, you can always bake longer, but just see it doesn’t get burnt.
