Oats choco Cookies

Oats choco cookies
     Baked cookies, combining oats(roast n ground) n coco powder as the main ingredients....

     First of all, i should thank my little one who insisted me to bake a chocolate cookie almost for an hour @ 9pm, if he wouldn't insisted, i may not bake these lovely textures at that point of time ( 9-10 pm - baked cookies along with kids hands in it -  it's an other different story altogether......

    since choco cookie has to be baked, i thought of including oat meal which is resting along with my other groceries for days. sesame seeds n coconut toppings r the sudden spark of idea for my last batch of cookies....

    Altogether, i say, it's an experiment on cookie making which turned out to a surprising success...



Any of the following ingredients(except baking powder n baking soda) can b added at any part of time while making the cookie dough to reach the consistency n that's the way i do!!!.....

Ingredients :
oat meal (whole grain rolled oats) - 1 cup (slightly roasted n coarse ground).
( i use BAKERS oat meal)
All purpose flour / maida - 1 cup.
Coco powder - 4 tbsp.
Powdered sugar - 1 cup.
Baking powder - 1tsp.
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp.
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp.
Coffee extract - 1 tbsp (optional - adding it since i luv the flavor, )
Butter - 1 cup (melted).
Milk - 1 tbsp.

Method:
=> pre-heat the oven to 180 degree centigrade.

=> sieve all purpose flour, sugar, coco powder, baking powder n baking soda, add the corse grounded oats n mix well.

=> add in vanilla essence, coffee extract n mix well.


=> add melted butter little at a time n mix till to reach a thick dough consistency, make a ball shape,   bake a batch of cookies for 15-17 minutes or till done( makes thin crust cookies becoz of butter alone in making dough).

=> if u need the thick crispy cookies then add in a tablespoon of milk which loosen the consistency, make a ball shape, flatten it slightly which in turn makes thick cookies (if the dough is very much loosen,  can add in the all purpose flour to bring back the consistency ), bake for 15 - 17 minutes or till done.

=> remove from oven, cool on wire rack, preserve in a air-tight container...

Tip1: pat the little -ball shaped-flatten dough with white sesame seeds, bake for a different flavor, taste n to make it attractive.





Tip2: pat the little- ball shaped- flatten dough with dessicated coconut, bake for a oats-coco-coconut flavored cookies.



Tip3: can also pat it with sliced almonds or pistachios which is  really impressive....

Tip4: mix in some of ur ideas to bake a perfect idea cookie ( what an idea sirji!!!;-)
