Eggless Oats & Dates Cookies-A light tea time snack



These are almost fat free, not so heavy healthy cookies perfect to munch with a cup of tea. I followed Mrs.Chithra's recipe without making any changes. I used only 1 tbsp of oil and 2 tbsp of milk to make the dough. For tastier cookies, you can add 1/4 cup of melted butter instead of oil and milk. I did not add any sugar because of health reasons. Instead I added more dates.

Ingredients:
Wheat flour-1/4 cup
Instant oats-3/4 cup
Dates(minced)-1/4 cup
Brown Sugar-1/4 cup
Oil-1 tbsp
Milk-2 tbsp
or substitute milk and oil with 1/4 cup melted butter

Method:
Preheat oven to 375 F
Mix all the ingredients and make a dough.
Make small balls and place them in a baking tray lined with aluminum foil(grease the foil with oil). Flatten the balls slightly(1/4 inch thick) with a spoon.
Bake for 20 minutes(turn over in between after 10 minutes). Let it cool and store in an air tight container.

Obviously the cookies will taste yummy if butter is used.

I am sending this recipe to the following events:
Sangeeth's Eat Healthy during Pregnancy
Purva's Christmas Festivities
JZ's Santa's holiday challenge
Sharmi’s Cookie Baking Event
Vandana’s Baking for Beginners

  26. Mahimaa, for the whole wheat buns... the yeast needs to froth for 10 min initially. Then after kneading... you should allow it to rest for 1 1/2 - 2 hrs.
    After doubling, fold it over 2-3 times and pinch into balls and again proof it for half-an-hour to one hour. Then bake it.
    Follow the same recipe I normally give for breads, only the shaping in different.
