Cookies healthy cookies everywhere, and so many crackers to eat! Can cookies be healthy? Somebody questioned. Why not, my mind pondered? When you eat outside junk, you never question whether this or that is healthy. Then what's the need to ask whether cookies are healthy?

Nevertheless, homemade oatmeal cookies are healthy. Even the multi-grain cookies are healthy.
Rest assured about it! At least healthier than the market cookies. Agree?

Ever wondered what goes inside those cookies that you buy outside? Yes, even the ingredient list is not clear about it. They claim having added wheat flour, but do you know wheat flour is a misnomer - it may stand for a blend of all-purpose flour and whole wheat grains.  Please check the image below for detail.




Have you started pondering over this fact now?

Oatmeal Cookie Recipe Procedure
Look at these beauties? Don't they tell you something? Yes, they tell you that they are loaded with healthy ingredients that make them a perfect diabetic friendly recipe. My parents-in law have been savoring graham crackers for over a decade. Ever since I started baking at home,  I have been curious enough to crack the recipe. I may not have been able to do so, but what I have come up with is a keeper!

You would surely want to bake another batch of quick oat biscuits because these would be gone in no time. Out of the oven and disappearing from the shelf quickly!

All right, let's get back to the procedure of this oatmeal cookie recipe.
  1. Grind Oats
  2. Roast flax seeds for 2-3 minutes. Let them cool down and grind.
  3. Grind red chilly to get flakes.
  4. Mix everything, except oil and water.
  5. Add oil and mix with dough.
  6. It will appear like bread crumbs.
  7. Add water little amount at a time. We do not want a sticky dough, but it should not be dry either.
  8. Gather the dough.
  9. Pre-heat oven for 8-10 minutes at 180 degrees.
  10. Grease a baking tray.
  11. Cut the dough into very thin sheets.
  12. I used cookie cutter to give shape.
  13. Bake for 15 minutes (depending on the thickness of your crackers - took me almost 20 mins, as my crackers were little thicker).
  14. Enjoy with a hot cup of tea.
  15. This is a perfect snack for diabetic patients as well. If you are making wheat crackers for diabetics, do not add sugar. I plan to bake these for my diabetic parents-in-law :) Since my in-laws are fond of these and have included crackers in their diabetic diet.
Feedback time on the diabetes-friendly recipe:

It's Diwali time and everyone is busy cooking sweets. Here I have come up with a healthy cookie recipe instead. Yes, of course, you need to watch your intake this festive season. After all, what goes inside, comes out! Be careful, enjoy, and do not hurt others. By the way do not forget to try this oat cracker recipe. Would love to hear back from you all!

Sugarless Besan Ladoo : A Healthy Chickpea Gluten Free Recipe
