I admire bloggers when they post recipes of the cooking sessions that they attend and this recipe is one such among a few which Deepali had shared. It also provides person who have no such opportunity to understand different techniques. Recently Sharadha and PJ had also blogged about their experiences in attending such a cookery session. I felt very happy on reading their experiences and felt pleased that they did not keep it to themselves but share it with the whole world and budding cooks.
I decided to experiment a whole lot with this recipe. You can find the original version here. Replaced semolina with the badam drink mix that I had left out in a jar and avoided the baking powder. Used both the flours instead of just All purpose flour. I just don’t understand why it got cracks. Does it mean it had baked well, I wonder.
Eggless Oats Almond Cookies
|All Purpose Flour||1/2 cup|
|Whole wheat Flour||1/2 cup|
|Brown sugar||1/2 cup|
|Vanaspati / Butter||100 gms|
|Badam Drink Mix||4 tbsp|
|Baking Soda||1/2 tsp|
|Sweet Almond essence||1 tsp|
|Chocolate chips||1 handful|
Now make balls of the crumbly cookie mixture loosely. It would be very easy to form the balls actually. Applying little pressure flatten the balls between your palms and place it on a greased tray.
|You can avoid using chocolate chips. Makes no big difference.|
|Oven timings may differ so use your judgement while baking.|
