Oats and Poha Cookies

Adding a desi touch to cookies is something i thoroughly enjoy. Poha or beaten rice is an  excellent substitute for rice flour, when it comes to baking. The oats, poha and almonds blend with each other to give this cookie an amazing crunch and the inside has a hollow feel, making the cookie light and airy . The kids love it with a glass of milk.

Recipe Notes

Notes-

Do check the post - Cookie Basics [ under kitchen stories and more] to clear any doubts regarding the steps involved.

I have made these cookies without almonds too. They taste just as nice. You may skip the nuts or add any others of your choice.

You can also add any other flavour or ingredient to give the cookie a twist. I have tried cardamom and it tasted really yummy.

These have a tendency to spread out or expand during baking. Do refrigerate until the dough feels firm. Also arrange them on the cookie tray with enough space in between each cookie.
