EGGLESS OATS AND JAGGERY CHOCO CHIPS COOKIES

Hello everyone

Today I have a very delicious yet healthy cookies recipe to share with you all. My this recipe is inspired by Nishchita Thejas's oatmeal raisin cookies with eggs. It was so delicious but I thought to give it my own twist as I generally make eggless ones and with some healthy ingredients to add on some more nutrients for my kids. That's why replaced little butter with peanut butter to give my cookies a nutty flavour and some health too. I tried four different texture of the same cookies by adjusting baking time and added some chocolate wheat flakes in my last batch of cookies to add some extra crunch. Basically these are chewy at center and crisp at edges.
My this mix and match of ingredients to main recipe turned out really delicious and for this I would like to thank nishchita for giving her recipe.
Stepwise recipe is given below. Hope you all will love and definitely give it a try.

EGGLESS OATS AND JAGGERY CHOCO CHIPS COOKIES



Time: 30-40mins
Yield: 16-18 medium size cookies

Ingredients 


1 cup instant oats
3/4 cup all purpose flour ( I used chapatti flour)
1/2 cup - 2 tsp butter, at room temperature
1 tbsp peanut butter ( completely optional, but then use whole 1/2 cup butter)
1/2 cup grated jaggery ( used grainy texture golden jaggery not sticky ones)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp baking Soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp instant coffee powder ( completely optional)
1/4 cup thick yogurt
1/2 tbsp corn syrup ( can be replaced with honey)
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup semi sweet choco chips ( you can use any)


Method:

First of all preheat your oven at 180 degree C.
Add flour, baking soda, salt and cofffee powder. Mix well and keep aside for later use.





Take butter and peanut butter in a big bowl and beat with a hand whisker or electric mixer till nice creamy. Now add grated jaggery and sugar and again whisk till fluffy. Add yogurt and again whisk till nicely incorporated.




Now add corn syrup and vanilla essence, mix well.
Add prepared flour mixture to it and mix well.




Now add oats followed by choco chips and fold to get nice lumpless sticky scoopable mixture.




Take a baking mat or baking pan lined with parchment paper. Scoop dough ( as per your choice of size preference) by icecream scoop or any spoon and place on baking sheet at reasonable distance ( as cookie will spread while baking). Now press each dough a little and give nice clean round shape with hand. 



Bake for 14- 20 minutes or till you get nice golden colour on edges of cookies.
Remove from oven and wait for 3-4 mins so that they will become easy to handle. Then transfer to wire rack and let them cool completely before storing in an air tight jar.



**Baking time will depend on your preference of texture of cookies.

* If you like chewy , then bake for 14-16 mins.
* If you love crispy crunchy , then bake for more time till you get your desired texture ( approx 18-20 mins)
* For crispier cookies, spread the dough thinner while pressing to give shape.


*** Note: The cookies will be still little soft when touched immediately after removing them from oven. They will get firm on cooling.  take care of this while baking so that not to burn them in making crisp.



** You can also freeze its dough and bake fresh cookies whenever you want.

I made four different texture from this same dough mixture :

1. Spreaded scooped dough thick and baked for 16-17 mins. It gave nice chewy and thicker cookies.




2. Spreaded scooped dough thin and baked for 15-16 mins. It gave nice crisp edges and chewy center.



3. Spreaded thin and baked for 18-20 mins. It gave overall crisp cookies.




4. Added 2 tbsp of choco wheat flakes to my final batch and spreaded as much I could. Baked for 18mins. It gave super crunchy cookies.





*** Baking time may vary oven to oven , so keep an eye on your cookies while baking.

Try whichever suits your taste buds and enjoy.



These can be stored at room temp for a week and for  a month in refrigerator. You can also freeze them to increase their self life .

These cookies are so delicious and healthy that you can munch any time to satisfy your sweet craving in a healthy way as well as for small hunger sprangs. Ideal for kids tiffin and travel snacks.
So enjoy these eggless delicious beauties as you like .  It's best accompaniment with  chilled milk .
