"Nutritious and Delicious"- A cookie with Goodness- Chocolate Almond Cookies

Want to eat your Cookie and feel good about it too? You are at the right place!! In my mania of ' eating good foods'...here is one more recipe I tried last week.

The cookies came out chocolaty, nutty, fulfilling and tasted delicious.They had a unique texture....not chewy...not crispy...not crumbly either...but  something in between!! You got to try it.Even my picky little 'E' loved those. For him ..I made little 'cupcake cookies' with the same cookie dough.

I call them" A cookie with goodness' because they have- half -whole wheat flour in the recipe, has oat meal, has almonds, flax seed meal....all good for you!

Ingredients: Makes 24 cookies/ cupcake cookies
3/4 cup Whole wheat flour
3/4 cup All purpose flour
1/2cup Oat meal ( pulse quick cooking oats in a mixer and powder them)

2)Beat the butter +Eggs+ Sugar.
3) Add all of the above ingredients and mix.
4) Mold into small balls and flatten/ press into mini muffin pans
