COCOA AND OAT COOKIES

Photobucket

My children love to have some tidbit like biscuit, cake, muffin and the like for tea time. This is the reason why I had to bake regularly instead of buying ready made goodies from supermarket shelf. Furthermore baking your own gave a lot of satisfaction in improving the recipes and we can adjust the amount of fat and sugar to our requirement another words, it is much healthier. One such recipe is Cocoa and Oat Cookies baked according to my taste.

INGREDIENTS

1 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 and 3/4 cups rolled oat
1 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/4 cup milk

METHOD

1. Preheat oven @ 175 C.

2. Cream butter and sugar until creamy, add milk and vanilla.

3. Combine together flour, cocoa, oat and baking powder, add the butter mixture, stir well.

4. Shape into a small ball then flatten slightly. Bake for 10-15 minutes.

5. Leave on pan for 5 minutes, remove and cool on rack.

6. Store in an airtight container.
