For the final day of guilt free dishes, I have a cookie made with peanut flour and Oats. I know most of you must be thinking that I am still in my Baking Mega BM days
, where I had done some peanut butter cookies and some. The peanut Butter chips were sent by Priya Srinivasan
and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I even got second helping to the cup and I still have some left out.
So I thought the best option was to bake some more cookies. Guilt free Indulgence demands that the same indulgence be done on a less calori way and these cookies fit the bill. Instead of the regular flour, finely ground oats flour is used and replaced with brown sugar.
As I said upfront, I am not too much into replacing refined ingredients all the time. When it is possible and makes sense, I do. Moreover I believe as we were fed all these, our kids should have their share of indulgence of everything. Of course in moderation and in the way its healthy.
In that sense I hope my attempt at making this series was met. I wanted to try few more recipes, unfortunately with house guest, even sitting to update this has been so tough. Hoping to make them sometime. Until then you got to enjoy these cookies.

How to make Oats Peanut Choco Cookies
Roast the peanuts, allow to cool and make the meal.
In a bowl take the peanut flour/meal along with oats flour, add brown sugar, butter, baking soda, baking powder, salt and mix everything well.
Add more flour if required to get a soft dough. Mix in the bittersweet Chocolate Chips and peanut Butter Chips. Make balls and pinch out small balls.
Pre heat the oven at 185 C and bake the cookies for 15 mins
The binding in these cookies are oats and butter. The cookies do tend to be soft to touch. Let it cool down before trying to bake again. On cooling, these do hold their shape.
