Oatmeal Cookie

I switched to Oatmeal breakfast sometime back. When you have a metabolism that is not so kind on your weight when you satisfy your tongue on Cakes, muffins, bread-butter.....what option do you have!!!

I get a Quaker Oats assorted instant Oats box. Which comes with pockets of instant oats of different flavors. It also has 6 pockets of original Oats, that is without any added flavors. How much ever I push myself to eat Oats, I just can't take the original one.

So, those pockets kept piling up. I searched on some cookie recipes & found this Vegan one.

However I changed it to a complete non Vegan & made slight modifications. It was a great success, my hubby & my in-laws enjoyed it very much.

Quaker Instant Oats Original - 3 pockets (3 cups oridinary oats can also be used),
All purpose flour - 1 cup
Baking powder - 1/2 tspoon (original recipe calls for baking soda, as I did not have I used this)
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Brown Sugar - 3/4 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Butter - 200 grams (I melted in Microwave for 30 seconds)
Salt - 1/2 tspoon
Spice Powder - 1/2 tspoon (I dry roasted Cinnamon 1 stick, Nutmeg - 1/2, Cloves - 2, Cardamom -1. Powdered them)
Raisin - 3 spoons (optional)
Chopped Walnut - 2 spoons (optional)

Preheat oven with 375 degrees.
Mix sugar, brown sugar, butter & milk. Add flour, spices, salt, baking powder and mix them, dissolving any lumps. Finally add Oats, raisin & walnuts.
Take a spoonful & place them in the cookie sheet with adequate space.
Bake them for 15 minutes. Take them out, let it cool for 15 minutes & enjoy them.
