Wheat flour and muesli cereal cookies

A cookie recipe that was just a trial in my kitchen and guess what ....."a perfect hit". It was crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside giving it the perfect cookie effect. I wanted to make something for my hubby but without maida , without sugar and without a lot of butter... though it does use some ghee :D

In fact it all started when I found  a packet of oats muesli cereal at my mom's. She had a lot so I picked one try it out. Well it stayed on the shelf for quite a while before I decided not to eat it as a cereal but it in something else instead. When making this cookie it found its way in.Now thats a little bit of added goodness.

Started making the cookies with a blank mind but then things went into the bowl one after the other and yes there it was. Made it and loved it. Sure a keepsake 

Serves... 4-6 ppl
Serve option... Room tempertaure

This is what u'll need....

Muesli Oats(from 1 packet)  - 1/2 cup
Whole wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Naatu Sakkari powdered(not packed) - 1/2 cup(unrefined cane sugar)
Butter/ghee - 2 tbspn
Flax seed powder - 1/2 tbspn
Baking soda 1/4 tspn
Raisins - 3 tbspn
Baking powder - 1/8 tspn
Water - 3 tbspn
Raisins - 2 tbspn

Here is the stir....

    • Take muesli-oats cereal in a bowl
    • Add half cup of whole wheat flour to it. Mix both together 
    • In a small bowl take half a tablespoon of flax seed powder
    • Add a tablespoon of water to this and mix well. Let this rest for about 10-15 minutes
    • After resting it will turn little slimy like egg
    • In a wide bowl take naatu sakkari (unrefined cane sugar)
    • Add ghee to this and mix it well. I used a hand blender
    • Next pour in the flax seed mixture into it and beat well till well incorporated 

    • Add the flour and cereal mix to the bowl and mix gently till everything comes together. Dont overdo it. Mix till you see flour and then stop
    • Add baking powder and mix again
    • Sprinkle raisins and give one final stir
    • Pinch out a small amount of dough and roll it into a circle. Flatten lightly and place it on a greased baking tray
    • Bake it in a 180 degrees preheated oven for 12-15 mins
    • Once done let them cool on a wire rack. Store it an airtight container

    • If you dont have naatu sakkarai just use regular sugar 
    • Dont overmix the flour 
    • A pinch of baking should do. It is purely optional though to add it at all
