Oats and Coconut Cookies with Nutella icing

8:39 AM


Some people are lazy and then some are lazier. And if you are looking for the laziest then look no where here I am. don’t know what has gotten into me this year but am feeling uninspired. Planning to make a lot of things but when it comes to cooking I don’t want to enter the kitchen, or more strangely am cooking and eating but don’t feel like clicking the food. Such a bad phase for a food blogger.

But given the circumstances I should have simply divulged in baking.  as this year would be the first time when am around my own people. First time when during Christmas I would get some 20 hungry mouths to stuff my cakes and cookies with. Almost all my cousins have planned to visit us in Santiniketan for Poush meal. But rather than baking gorgeous goodies I kept on procrastinating the whole process.

Anyways finally yesterday was able to gather myself up and baked the family favourite oats and coconut cookies. And while am writing this post a light Christmas fruit cake is being baked. This cookie is one of those recipes that made me confident about baking. Its easy and almost no fail recipe. I have been baking these for 3-4 years now and it has never let me down. Its easy and even an amateur baker can bake these cookies with perfect end result. the best part is the oats gives it a nutty flavour and an healthy edge. Sometimes I add chocolate chips but today wanted to jazz them up for Christmas. So iced and decorated it with melted nutella, white chocolate and chopped pistachios.

Oats and Coconut cookies
Yields 12-14 cookies

For the recipe please mail to ahomemakersdiary@yahoo.in. Thanks

To decorate them just brush with nutella (at room temperature) or dip half of it in melted chocolate and sprinkle with chopped nuts of your choice.

A homemaker's Notes:
If making for everyday use skip the icing and add chocolate chips instead.

For eggless bakes add 1 tbsp flax seed powder. mix it with 2 tbsp water and keep aside for 15 minutes. Use instead of eggs.

Sometimes i also add cinnamon powder instead of vanilla essence.
