Hi everyone......a simple little thought- how do people in merry ol' england stay merry?We have the english weather out here (in the himalaya's!)..its cold,wet and miserable!Anyway to cheer the lot of us i baked these healthy cookies yesterday.Healthy..coz its made with whole wheat and brown sugar..and cocoa(feel good factor)...its easy to do and whats more with each bite you'll not feel too guilty!
1.1 cup atta(whole wheat flour)
2.1/2 cup oats
3.100 gms butter
5.1/2 cup brown sugar
6.2 tablespoons cocoa powdr
7.1 level teaspoon baking soda
8.1 teaspoon vanilla essence
9.1/4 cup each of dark chocolate and white chocolate chips
1.Sieve the dry ingrds together(atta,baking soda and cocoa pdr).
2.Beat the butter and sugar together(if reqd..microwave the butter for a few seconds to make it a little soft).Add the essence and egg,beat well.
3.Pre heat the oven(switch it on at this stage at 180degC)
4.Add the flour,oats and chocolate chips.Mix well. I use an electric beater.
5.Butter the cookie tray(if you have parchment paper then just use that)....then simply use a rounded spoon to plop the cookies onto the tray(use an ice cream scoop...i could'nt find mine!)
On a totally unrelated note.....due to the weather..this is what my daughter was upto
|can't step out!|
|huh?.can't hear you!|
|when is this going to end?|
|i'm soooooooo embarassed..this is humiliating.|
|feel a little better!|
