Oats Cookies / Oats Cornflakes Cookies

I tried these oats cookies sometime back and in the same week I tried it twice one with the orginal measurement and the next time a low fat version. I liked both of them as I luv oats in any form, so me and amma enjoyed these cookies and it was emptied in no time that I baked another batch just for click sake :) It is sure a keeper and a winning recipe!!

I tried these cookies from 4th Sense Cooking and wanted to post it on her special day...Happy Bday Nithi!! :) Hope you have a wonderful day as wonderful as you are!!

Oats Cookies Recipe
Yay!! Finally I got my measuring cups set the pink ones u see in these pics....All these days I had only 1 cup and 1/2 cup with which I used to measure manually. Though it didnt let me down in most of my baked goodies I was crazy and keen in getting a set. The most common ones I found in Chennai was a red set and I didnt want in red so was waiting....

After moving to CBE, I almost visited all branches of Nilgiris and finally when I found it in Race Cource branch, my joy knew no bounds. These days I feel so happy in shopping for mittu and Sharmis Passions than for myself. Thanks to hubby for taking so much strains to get me these cups.

Oats Cookies Recipe
Okay with no further delay onto the recipe :) The recipe is very simple and quick to make


Ingredients:
  • Oats - 3/4 cup
  • Cornflakes - 1/4 cup
  • All purpose flour - 3 tbsp
  • Brown sugar - 1/4 cup
  • Butter/cooking oil - 1/4 cup
  • Salt - 1/4 tsp
Method:
  1. Grind oats, brown sugar and cornflakes each seperately to a fine powder and keep it aside.

  2. Beat butter and powdered sugar until creamy. Then add powdered oats, cornflakes,maida, salt and make a dough. Flatten it slightly and wrap it in a plastic sheet and chill it for 15mins.

  3. Take out the dough, pinch equal balls from it and roll them smoothly as possible then press it lightly with your palm with less pressure. Then dip the fork in flour and press it slightly to get those lines on your cookies.

  4. Preheat oven to 180 deg C to 10mins. Meanwhile line a baking tray and place these cookies leaving atleast 1/4 inch gap between each cookie.

  5. Bake the cookies for 15-20mins(not more than that) till the base turns golden brown. Cool them and then store it in airtight container and enjoy ur cookies!



Oats Cookies Recipe
Low fat version Ingredients:
  • Oats - 3/4 cup
  • Cornflakes - 1/4 cup
  • Brown sugar - 1/4 cup
  • Wheat Flour - 3 tbsp
  • Milk - little less than 1/4 cup (add and adjust accordingly)
  • Salt - a pinch
The method is the same as above. These low fat cookies are a bit chewy and crunchier while the orginal cookies are crispier. These are light teatime cookies and goes well with a hot cup of coffee.


Oats Cookies Recipe
My Notes :
  • Do not forget to leave sufficient gap between each cookies else the cookies will loose its shape.

  • The smoother the balls you make, your cookies will have less cracks. But still oats and cornflakes are crumbly in texture so will definitely have few cracks atleast , but our aim is to minimise it :)

  • Add a tsp of milk if your dough isnt getting together - adjust accordingly.

  • You can skip cornflakes and make it as plain oats cookies. If skipping cornflakes add 1 cup oats.

This click below was kind of intentional, most of the time my photoshoot is with mittu around. This time she was very tempted to see the sugar being placed so kept on trying to reach it while I was restricting her. At one stage I finally asked her to come and take while making myself ready for the click :)

See my little ant reaching for the sugar :)

  42. Hey Sharmi I tried these cookies this time with 1/4 cup of oil instead of butter but the cookies came out too soft and crumbly... any idea why is it so ?
    any tip would be good :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh not sure why...was the dough easy to hold together?

      Delete
    2. No it was not holding together :(
      Later I searched web for oil as a substitute for butter and found that quantity of oil should be less than butter. But I am still not sure about the substitution amount.I guess need to try and find out.

      Delete
    3. Oh not sure what went wrong for you....I didnt find any issues rolling and making the cookies

      Delete
  43. Can we use oil and milk in equal proportion instead of butter

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For this recipe butter is recommended to get crispy cookies
