Cookies, Cookies, Cookies ! A treat that eluded me so long ! Everytime I read my little one stories about cookies, I wondered when I would bake one 🙂 Madhuram’s wonderful vegan recipeseemed just right , and voila I did try, with some personal tweaks ! I also reduced all proportions of the original recipe by 1/3 as I was on my debut here, and I ended up with 9 – 10 largeChoco Oatmeal Cookies 🙂 Having omitted the raisins , I added cocoa powder, roasted sesame seeds to the original recipe, and the texture changed tremendously 🙂

Preparation time : 10 mins

Cooking Time : 12 – 15 mins

Ingredients:

  • Oats (Quick rolled) – 1 cup ( I used Quakers)
  • Maida / All Purpose Flour – 1/4 cup
