Oatmeal Banana cookie

IMG_3248

Now a days my picky eater (my son Vishvak) drives me crazy. Whatever I give him its a big noooo. If I give him food in plate that’s the last thing he wants to taste, but if he see anything in carpet, he gets super excited to taste it. If This is the story with food, fruits oh mannnnn. Though eating fruits directly is always best, at times I feel it’s better if he tastes something in a different form instead of rejecting it fully. Decided to give fruits in some other form, so far have succeeded with muffin and pudding (Recipe coming soon).

I was searching for the toddler friendly recipes and got inspired from Wholesomebabyfoods. Good thing about banana cookie is no fancy ingredients, its super easy and most importantly even we liked it

My Notes:

  • Can use chocolate chip, almonds, pecans,walnut or any other nuts of your choice
  • Spices like Cinnamon, nutmeg can be added
  • I didn’t add sugar as it was sweet because of banana. Sugar can be added if you feel so
  • If you are using old fashioned oats coarsely pulse it once
  • Watch on eye after 13 minutes to avoid over cooking
  • Can mash and add bananas
  • If you don’t like raw oats flavour you can saute the oats for 3-4 minutes and add it
  • Can pulse the oats and add it

Merry Christmas:-)

As I am on vacation, I could not try out new recipes for holiday specials. Started browsing my drafts and saw a cookie recipe and cake recipe, so decided to post a cookie recipe for Christmas and cake for New year 🙂

Sometime back, I got custard for preparing fruit custard. After preparing fruit custard, I had custard powder left and was thinking what to do with it.  Hubby and kid liked the Walnut Butter Cookies, so thought of preparing some cookies with custard powder.

My Notes:

  • Can use cookie cutter for desired shape
  • I prefer my cookies on the sweeter side, so adjust sugar according to your taste
  • Cookies appear chewy initially but they became crisp after they are cooled completely
  • Add extract according to the flavour of custard powder.If you are using butterscotch custard use extracts accordingly
  • I used both brown sugar and white sugar, instead white sugar can be fully used
  • All purpose flour/maida can be used instead of wheat flour
  • Oil can be used instead of butter
  • Cocoa powder can be used if you like chocolate flavour

Whenever I think of Cookies, I always remember the quick 1 minute eggless chocolate chip cookies. I have tried cookies with All purpose flour, but as a healthy change this time, wanted to try with whole wheat flour. When I was seraching for eggless whole wheat cookies recipe online, I came across  whole wheat cookies in jeyashri kitchen. I liked it, so I tried it with slight modifications. Crispy cookies became a great hit in our home, even my LO asks for one more bite:-)

IMG_8322

Sometimes we feel like having certain foods, and prepare them. But there are certain recipes which give us that urge to prepare after just seeing the recipe. This 1 minute choc chip cookies is definitely one among them. When I tried it for the first time, it was a flop show! Though I read the recipe well, I was not sure if it will cook after taking out of microwave. I kept for 1 minute and 30 sec, and it was burnt 😦 After two days I tried again. This time, the cookie cooked even after taking out of the microwave, and easy delicious cookie was ready in no time 🙂 I did not add egg to the cookie!

  • I microwaved for 25 seconds, took it out, then for 15 sec and finally for 10 sec. The original recipe told 30, 20 and 10 for 700 w. I do not have power adjustment in my microwave, so I reduced 5 sec every time. Stop when center is cooked and egdes are not fully cooked. As I mentioned in the intro, the cookie continues to cook and get firmer once out of microwave oven
