Oats Cinnamon cookies with some milk

We are back on the cookie bandwagon and these oats cookies have a good dose of cinnamon and cashews and raisins and offer a guilt free option to those who few guilty about eating cookies. Though in my opinion it does not make sense to feel guilt or any negative emotion when you eat. Enjoy what you eat and have fun, especially cookies. These cookies work for people of all ages, be it adults or kids. It can be whipped up in a jiffy and is perfect for a quick snack when you don’t know what to make.

I love to bake these cookies along with my daughter. She enjoys measuring out ingredients and mixing the dough. It is a good activity when I teach her different things like maths, science and we enjoy the process immensely. I truly believe baking is a necessary skill for kids since it is a beautiful mix of the important concepts of mathematics, science and art. If left to me, I would certainly include it as part of a regular school curriculum. But till that happens, I strongly urge all of you to bake with kids while teaching them in a fun way to understand and retain basic critical concepts. Happy Baking!

Why I like these oats cookies?

The oats cookies have a nice chewy texture with a lovely bite from the cashews. These cookies do not need any chilling time and is a quick fix for an evening snack or to fill the quite dreadful snack box for school. I also like these cookies since I replace the cinnamon and cashew and it turns into a whole new kind of cookie with minimal effort. I am a fan of the chewy fudge type cookies as against the airy light ones and this one fits the bill perfectly.
