Cornflakes, Oats and Millet Cookies

Atulit, my 8 year old,  absolutely loves this combination. The cornflakes and oats make these buttery cookies delightfully crunchy. I have tried these cookies with whole wheat flour too. Today i chose to add some ‘multi- millet flour’ instead. This not only added to the ‘health quotient’ of the cookies but gave them a surprisingly distinct flavour too. Have fun baking and munching on these goodies.

Recipe Notes

Notes-

Oven temperature and time may vary. The cookies are done, once the lower edges start to turn light brown.

If you are new to cookie baking, do check the post - Cookie Basics [ under Kitchen Stories and More]. This would help you understand the steps involved and clear any doubts.

*Multi Millet Flour- Dry roast equal quantities of foxtail millet, kodu millet, pearl millet, sorghum, finger millet and little millet . Grind together into a fine powder ,sieve and use. You can also add flaxseed, maize etc.  This mix can also be added to our regular 'chappati dough' or used to make porridge.

You may use ready made 'healthy flour mix' or millet flours, available in most stores these days.

I have also made these cookies using whole wheat flour. These taste great too. The taste of the cornflakes and oats is more prominent in this case.

You can add a couple of drops of milk, in case the dough starts to feel dry.

Happy Baking
