Oats Almond Cookie

The demand of these cookies had been very high since i started sharing it with family and friends about 2 years ago. Every time, I go to India for vacation, standard order comes for these and avocado sweet bread.  The effort is very little and so the ingredients.  I have seen most of the cookies call for either tons of sugar or butter or oil.  Oat raisin cookies is no exception. 

Try these ones and let me know what you think?  I do not make any other cookie except these ones on regular basis.

Some prep work is there. 

What you need?

Grind oats and sieve them.  Measure 1.25 cups
Grind whole raw almonds.  Measure 1 cup
Sugar - 4 Tbsp
Coconut oil-4 Tbsp  or Butter-4 Tbsp.
Milk - 1 Tbsp + (optional)
salt - 1/4 tsp (if you like salty sugar taste)
baking soda - 1/4 tsp
Cardomom powder-1/4 tsp


How to make?

1. Beat sugar and coconut oil.  If using butter, bring it to room temperature, beat very well for about 4 mins with sugar.
2. Add all the dry ingredients
3. Make a stiff dough by pouring liquid with dry mix.  Add a tbsp of milk if it is too hard to roll them.
4.  Spread oil in a cookie sheet and keep it ready
5. Roll small balls and flatten them and arrange them in cookie sheet.  Leave space in between, they will expand.
6. Bake at 350 for 20 mins.   Rotate them in the middle.
7. Take out and turn the cookies to the other side.  Bake for 10 more mins. 
8. Once done, let it cool in the wire rack.    It will harden as it cools and tastes better.

Keep checking after 25 mins just to make sure that it does not burn.   

Try out and let me know.
